“If you’re not turning your company into a “math house” you’re headed for serious trouble. Every industry will soon be driven by digitization and every winning company will be using algorithms, or mathematical rules for processing information, to shape the end-to-end customer experience. ” -Dr. Ram Charan, Best-Selling Author and Global CEO Advisor

In this  hands-on, experiential session; Dr. Ram Charan, Best-Selling Author and Advisor to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, will explain how and why companies should redesign the way they do business, led by algorithms and numbers. Dr. Charan will show how digital platforms can create value for incumbent businesses, what blocks them from being true participants in the transformation, and how to connect people and numbers to build great products.

In the move towards making consumer experience richer, incumbent businesses are being challenged by technology-led agile businesses. India is in the middle of a digital transformation and new algorithms and data are spurring constant product innovation.

Clearly, the new strategy for any company in the world we live in ought to be one that charts for itself a digital roadmap and leverages technology to meet a customer’s requirements without involving middlemen. Companies such as Amazon are fine examples of digitised, customer-centric enterprises.

The most critical success factor in this digitally inspired environment is access to talent with the right mind-set. Strategy comes from people’s minds and it is this segment of people who drive the company towards making a difference.

Digital is, inevitably, the future for businesses. But, how does an incumbent company make the transition?
Join the all-day intensive workshop to gain insights from Dr. Charan.
