Summary

Transforming Ideas Into Action

The scale and pace of transformation has been a source of frustration for leaders across every large business. Cloud underpins almost every transformation journey, so is a great place to start in examining the obstacles hindering the process.Business distractions, emergency projects, staff churn and many more complications are slowing down transformation, making it challenging to align cloud with existing systems, business strategy and product. Is there an optimal balance between long-term transformation and short-term experimentation to keep focus on the bigger picture, whilst enabling the smaller wins?At our Future Focused dinner, we'll explore how you can drive transformation from the top whilst encouraging input and innovation from across the workforce, ensuring that ideas are transformed into action without missing future opportunities.
