Innovate at Speed

The transformation supper
Large consumer-facing organisations understand that they need to transform more quickly. As cross-border transactions increase and Europe’s commercial relationships redraw themselves, technology transformation for the region’s large organisations is due to accelerate.
Within this new competitive environment, innovation is a key currency. Our private dinner in Amsterdam this autumn was an excellent opportunity to share stories of innovation and change amongst peers.
We explored innovation against a backdrop of technology that is shifting away from “stable but rigid” solutions to a more flexible set of systems. During the evening we heard from business & digital leaders who are in the throes of huge programs to transform not just their technology but their working practices - to innovate more quickly and to compete with greater velocity.
Over dinner we had the opportunity to discuss:
- Where does innovation sit best across your organisation?
- Can an innovation culture and a more “headless” technology stack deliver change faster?
- How can vendors both help & hinder the technology transformation process?
