If you’re looking to build a truly digital transformation then you need people, information, process, and technology. But how do you get from the initial idea to full implementation?
Following the success of our recent roundtable and webinar on digital transformation, we’re hosting a workshop focusing on the end goal and exploring strategy, data sharing, and how to build trust.
Together with Bluebeam, we've been investigating digital transformation processes and adoption for some time. What has become clear is that there's a real need for more practical and tangible steps to deliver digital transformation.
But technology is just the enabler, not the end goal. That's why this workshop will delve into some of the key themes that have arisen during our previous events.
Welcome & introduction
Session one: strategy
Session two: data sharing
Session three: change management training and how to build trust
