The Hard Part of Digital Transformation – Addressing Business and Organizational Change

Dec 4, 2019 2:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

As Digital Transformation efforts sweep across Government and Corporate America, many enterprises are finding that the results of their Digital Transformation efforts are much less than expected. A recent survey of one hundred Digital Transformation efforts internally measured using various criteria reported thirty percent of those efforts were deemed “successful.” Corporations are finding that a key area of difficulty is analyzing the organization and how it needs to function in the digital world. Analyzing an organization today using standard techniques is little more than looking at the organization chart and “looking” for inefficiencies. In fact, the “traditional” organization chart tells us very little about how the organization actually functions. This webinar will present and describe some innovative techniques that can be used in analyzing how organizations need to address organizational transformation to provide successful digital transformations, beyond just technology change. As a group, these techniques are described as part of B. (Business) I. (Information) O. (Organization) Transformation – BIO Transformation.

Topic Teasers Vol. 127: Deciding Through Lego Experiences?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Use whatever methodology you want! I still have yet to find one that can help me make tough decisions mid-project. It seems that there are always obstacles that arise, timing that gets disrupted, budgeting issues that were unrealistic from the outset and tough paths no matter which way I turn. I get in such a turmoil about trying to have a positive outcome that I’m almost frozen with indecision. What’s the part they leave out that helps project managers or scrum participants make the tough decisions?
