Product Driven Digital Transformation

Session’s Overview

Digital Transformation is critical to the ongoing success of nearly every company, however the vast majority of these transformation efforts fail. All too often, enterprises make the faulty assumption that digital transformation is simply about applying technology to existing processes, rather than about fundamentally changing the strategy and approach of their business.
As the need to “go digital” and stay ahead of the competition accelerates for enterprises everywhere, companies are increasingly looking to Product Managers as the driving force behind any digital transformation in order to de-risk the effort and maximize both business and end user value.
