SEMINAR EVENT – FROM FBI TO CIO: DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND AGILE MANAGEMENT
The need for agility has never been more pronounced. In today’s dynamic and fast-moving world, some of the biggest companies that exist today didn’t exist five years ago. Some of the biggest brands have been disrupted to the point of extinction. The tools that served us well in the past don’t necessarily still apply – volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity are challenging much of what we know. However, the reality is we are only at the beginning of an exponential growth curve and we need to re-imagine the future in order to adjust to an era of humans integrated with machines.
Come along to hear what a former criminal psychologist has learned about the human aspects of leading digital and agile transformations through her experience working with Disney, NBC Universal, Gap Inc, Walmart and Ebay and advising on Adaptive Leadership and digital transformations across the world.
