One of the biggest challenges for organizations today is not only to drive successful innovation and digital development, but also to successfully scale up the whole operation while still keeping up with the frequent changes at a global market. The capability to deliver digital at scale is really the new frontier. How should you go about to succeed, how did others do it, and what assets are there to help? Welcome to a Snapshot Breakfast about From What to How – How to Deliver at Scale.
When a company strives to deliver a digital initiative at scale, both capability and capacity risk to become bottlenecks, not to mention legacy processes and infrastructure – but there are ways to work around this. What assets and enablers can facilitate your operations? How can you assure speed, quality and economy across the whole execution?
Delivering digital at scale means different things depending on the industry, but there are some commonalities which we try to cover in our seminar series From What to How: it’s about the organizational approach, putting the customer at center, building new ecosystems, and the ability to gear up throughout operations. This session focuses on the latter, and among other things we’ll discuss how cloud technologies, proven methodologies and global delivery centers can scale up your initiatives.
Welcome to meet the people who already succeeded, find out the critical success factors, and learn how to deliver at scale within your own organization.
