How to Build a Digital Transformation Framework to Accelerate the Digital Future of Your Organization

Digital transformation is highly versatile and complex. It can apply to so many aspects of business operations and yet, it is difficult to know how to get started and even trickier to see an initiative through. With research showing that 70% of digital transformation strategies (DTS) fail, how does an organization define, execute, and manage an effective DTS? Join SC&H Group and accompanying panelists to learn how to develop and execute a framework for digitization and technology-driven initiatives aligned with business requirements and in-house expertise to ensure ongoing, sustainable success.
