We will look at challenges in education, adoption and hiring the right skill sets to support this inevitable change.
Leadership and building a culture of innovation
Big institutions are failing. But smart, inspired leaders can drive the changes needed across an organization to win in today’s digital economy. What strategies are working? What companies are providing the partnership, collaboration and tools needed to support the process?
