digital and think it's an IT project, when in
fact, it's hardly about the technology at all-
the technology is a relatively easy part of the
transformation. The hard part is trying to shift
how people work each day, how decisions get
made, how to ensure that everyone has clarity
on the end goal and that the value we set out to
capture is realized. That's the real challenge.

Our executive management team is also serving
as the steering committee for the transformation.
We meet every month, where we address
challenges that the teams need help with. We
also have a second team-we call it our business
readiness team-that helps ensure we have
frequent and transparent communication and
planning with the extended leadership across
the world. We've also established some informal
networks that help us disseminate information
and receive informal feedback about how the
change process is going.

PEOPLE TEND TO MISUNDERSTAND
THE NATURE OF A DIGITAL
TRANSFORMATION. THEY HEAR
THE WORD DIGITAL AND THINK IT'S
AN IT PROJECT.

SUPPORT AT THE TOP
One key factor is making sure that the
transformation is being pushed top-down from
the executive leadership team. They need to be
clear about the business change that they're
expecting, and they need to help you drive that
change. It has to start at the top because you
need top-level support during the inevitably
difficult times. As we all know, one of the
main challenges of a digital transformation is
that, at the same time that you're overhauling
the organization, you're in a business serving
customers. It's easy to lose sight of that while
you're focusing on the transformation of
your own capabilities by implementing new
technology.

TRYING TO SHIFT HOW PEOPLE
WORK EACH DAY, HOW DECISIONS
GET MADE, HOW TO ENSURE THAT
EVERYONE HAS CLARITY ON THE
END GOAL...THAT'S THE REAL
CHALLENGE.

Beyond the integration project, I'm also very
focused on finding IT talent. Finding tech talent
is not easy. And finding tech leaders can be even
harder-someone who can bridge the software
and engineering worlds and who is also a strong
visionary and leader. I think to address that
shortage, we really need to think about tapping
in to all the potential talent in our population, to
create an environment that is open and inclusive
to a diverse group of talented people.

The biggest challenge in a digital technology
transformation is handling the human change
management it entails.
C-suite buy-in and involvement is an essential part of a
transformation.
You can't have a career and a family if you're a
perfectionist, but you can if you work hard and you're
accepting of your limitations.
