Digital Transformation is not a Cost-Center, It’s an Investment in Market Leadership

Digital Transformation is not a Cost-Center, It’s an Investment in Market Leadership

In many progressive cases, digital transformation prioritizes customer experience initiatives. Because it focuses (or should) on customer behavior, preferences and outcomes, digital transformation can, in its own way, making businesses more human. As such, digital transformation is not or should not be about digital. It’s greatest potential is achieved when technology enables human-centered experiences and the change that comes about inside and outside the organization as a result. Successful digital transformation is ongoing and continually seeks out how to use…

Exploring digital transformation and influence

Exploring digital transformation and influence

I hope it helps you… HOW DID YOU…

Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

It’s a new year and not necessarily another step forward. This isn’t the first time I’ve used this profound picture by Banksy as inspired by Meek. It always inspires me to spread my wings as a change agent. In my research, I find time and time again that digital transformation and corporate innovation is spurred by customer experience. The reality is that customers, as a result of their relationship with technology and the resulting digital transformation of their personal and professional…
