McKinsey Digital

@Worldwebforum

The three McKinsey breakout sessions will offer fascinating insights into companies who have mastered the challenges of Digital & Analytics transformations.

In a lively format, combining presentations, interviews, panel discussions and open-floor Q&A sessions, speakers from a host of leading companies such as Axpo, Novartis, SAP and Prudential will discuss how you can embed advanced analytics in your business to achieve enterprise-wide impact; how you can get business value out of large tech transformations; and how you can up- and reskill thousands of employees to make them ready for the future.

Speakers

Value assurance of tech initiatives

Delivering business value from technology transformations

The majority of business leaders interviewed by McKinsey believe that scaling up a technology transformation can help them deliver 30 to 50 percent profit and shareholder value growth. However, two-thirds of technology transformation programs fail to deliver positive business value. Traditional incumbents in particular have to rethink how they set up and run digital transformation initiatives.
