Technology is developing exponentially creating new opportunities to reach and connect customers, and generating opportunities for considerable cost savings and efficiencies. Digital technologies today are swiftly disrupting the existing business models of firms. Businesses must innovate as least at the same pace, if not faster, in order to survive the digital acceleration. Digital transformation remains a major issue for private and public sector organisations globally. With this in mind, Mike continues to ensure that learnings and best practice from private and public sector transformation journeys are identified to assist businesses to redefine value add, become more customer centric and make it easier to transform their organisation.
