Digital Enterprise   


Is your Organisation Prepared for the Digital Revolution?


- Presenters' Key Takeways from the recent leadership forum

Brinley Platts, Director, CIO Development Ltd
  • You have to have backing from the top . You can’t do this at a technical level – it must come down from the board
  • You need to understand where you’re going. That’s not to say you know in great detail the endpoint, but you have to know what stage of transformation you are in
  • You need to understand what’s happening to the marketplace outside of your organisation. You’re going to be developing new competitors – there’s going to be new entrants coming in as your market, traditional organisations are going to be coming in as your market and there’s a race going on. What you have to do is be fast enough to beat your lead competitors. If you can do that, you will be successful

Ian Bromwich, Acting Digital & Transformation CIO, Lloyds Banking Group

  • Focus on talent, focus on culture, focus on the customer - get these three right and you will be a long way down the road to success

Richard Davies, Group Director, Global Business Services, International SOS
  • Make the digital strategy part of the fabric of the business strategy (don't just add it on the side)
  • Make the product managers central to how the business works
  • Digital starts with technology, but it ends with people; focus on the people, not just the talent, but also on developing the leadership in order to facilitate digital transformation
