Running Smarter in the Digital Age:
How can industry, government and academia join forces on digital transformation
The enduring question in the digital economy is how to ensure the sustainable digital transformation of organisations. In the world where almost no one can see the next disruption from around the corner, how do we build resilience and respond to threats, as well as capitalise on opportunities? In 2018, it is estimated that more than $1.2 trillion was spent on digital transformation efforts. Some believe that only 1% of these efforts will achieve the goal. How can we learn from others and not reinvent the wheel each time?
It is not only businesses that look to transform themselves digitally. Governments are increasingly implementing digital initiatives. From fragmented, point solutions, all the way to whole-of-government transformations, the public sector faces similar challenges and opportunities, giving rise to a new term: Government 4.0.
We have learned in the past years, that the most successful digital transformation initiatives are the ones that bring industry, government and academia strategically together.
What are the stories of success and failure? What are the challenges of collaboration among government, industry and academia? What can we learn from each other?
Join us for an exciting event, in which you will be exposed to the latest academic findings in this space, listen to transformation leaders about their stories, and engage in a stimulating discussion with your peers.
If you are a government executive or change maker, or work with government agencies, this event is not to be missed. If you want to learn how to ensure your transformation efforts are successful, join us at the event!
Date: Wednesday, 26 June 2019
Time: 6pm, for a 6.30pm start – 8.30pm
