Digital transformation – Three Questions to Think About from the Start – Nalen Naidoo and Dimitri Anagnostopoulos

The talk covers how ideas generated in an organisation can move from being good to being great, and then to becoming real. I will cover what a strategic framework for assessing ideas could be, what organisational culture is needed for an idea to flourish and get better, and then what a potential robust process to make the idea come alive / implement it, could look like. This is based on learnings from within my company.
