| | Leave a comment

Digital transformation has to be the business buzzword of 2016. Yet, it can be a challenge to really picture what it should look like at your organisation.

And this is not limited to sport teams—why do movies with a cast of stars and an acclaimed director sometimes flop? Or how could a company employing vastly experienced business people and top graduates from the most elite business schools in the US fail so spectacularly? Continue reading >>
