A UKRI Next Stage Digital Economy Research Centre
Digital Leaders Week, 14-18 June 2021.
We are delighted to say that DIGIT Lab is an academic sponsor and is delivering a series of 5 talks at the Digital Leaders Week. This is the UK’s largest event dedicated to Digital Transformation.
The last 20 years have seen an intense focus in all organizations on the opportunities and challenges of digital technology. This has changed how they operate to automate and accelerate day-to-day activities, providing new insights into what the organizations know about their products and services in production and in use, and revolutionizing the nature of the products and services they deliver to make them more virtual, personalized, and responsive.
For most organizations, digital transformation is a long journey. The first step has been intense focus on immediate concerns to digitize current ways of working, often referred to as “Horizon One thinking”. However, with such rapid technology change and increasing market volatility it is essential to also spend time to consider the coming needs of Horizon Two (in the next 12-18 months) and Horizon Three (over the coming 2-5 years).
This series of talks on “Digital Transformation: A View from Beyond the Horizon” will explore some of the key ideas currently under investigation that will bring opportunities for digital growth, innovation, and impact. The talks are inspired by the work being undertaken in the DIGIT Lab, a UK National Research Centre involving an alliance between academic and industry partners. Each talk will bring together experts from both communities in a fast-paced interactive dialogue addressing key themes for the future of digital transformation.
Day 1: DIGIT Lab: Accelerating Digital Innovation for Growth, Impact and Transformation
Day 2: Lessons in Driving Adoption of Digital Technology
Day 3: New business models of the Digital Economy
Day 4: Understanding the Keys to Effective Leadership in the Digital World
Day 5: Helping Your Workers to Survive and Thrive a Digital Transformation
Each 45 minute talk brings together provocative academic and industry viewpoints on the future of digital transformation and addresses key question on how these ideas will impact your future strategy.
