The Cultural Change Needed in Industry

We modernise our technology but not our organisations, a cultural change is needed in how industries approach technology innovation and implementation. Innovation is the key to progress, but it tends to be lacking in the digital age, why? This talk will look at key places to start including:

  • Empowering people
  • Dangers of Digital Amnesia
  • Value first not technology
  • Our perception of change vs reality
