There’s no denying that digital has created change amongst business systems, technologies, customer relationships and workforces. In any post-COVID era, running a successful organization involves successfully running a digital business. Digital transformation is revolutionizing the way businesses operate and succeed. In fact, a third of key decision makers state that culture is the most significant barrier to digital effectiveness followed by a lack of understanding of digital trends (25%).

In such a competitive market, the need to understand the growth of digital platforms, ecosystems and business models is an integral part of the transformation process. This change requires a work environment that not only embeds digital from the top-down but also ensures that employees are informed, engaged and most importantly empowered to help cultivate a digital mindset in-house.

In this seminar, the DT-LAB@UCC explore effective ways an organization can accomplish that.
