Session: Teaching a Dinosaur to Skateboard
The phrase "digital transformation" or "data driven culture" has become as common as "synergy" or "circle back" as a term thrown around the office. But what does it really mean? How do you take such a large, ambiguous goal and make it actionable? This talk focuses on identifying your key stakeholders and defining goals critical to a digital transformation in your office. Using my own experience at GlaxoSmithKline as a guideline, I'll delve into what it takes to truly transforming an office culture, from technologically resistant colleagues to managing hiccups in new technology adoption.

- Your biggest obstacles to technology adoption are usually Gen X, not Boomers.
- Identify your highest value departments and start with them.
- Tailor your approach to your key stakeholders.
