It's not about having a digital strategy but

a strategy in a digital world

Various research reveals that 84% of digital executions are failing. Leaders need a different mindset and approach to improve that result. This keynote addresses why digital execution is so challenging and more important, what leaders can do to succeed in a digital world.

It features research on the state of digital conducted across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific and introduces The Ticking Clock© Model. This model, featured in Forbes Duke CE and other media, explains the three strategic stages and 11 steps to succeed in transforming your organization in a digital world.

Sharing practical stories and examples from China and the rest of the world, presenter Robin Speculand outlines best practices used by early adopters. He also explains why not every organization needs to be digitally driven immediately by examining strategy cadence and how digital execution differs from past strategy executions.
