Digital Quality Leadership: A New Look at Change

Needs a location

##### Description: Digital transformation attracts funding because companies are anxious to capture competitive advantage through new technologies like IoT, AI, and ML. But because excitement runs ahead of results, between 70-90% of digital transformation initiatives to date have failed. Although Industry 4.0 only emerged as a theme over the past decade, digital transformation started in the early 1970s, when PLCs were first introduced to industrial environments. Stories of digital transformation in each decade that span the boundaries between business models, quality management, software, and systems reveal actionable patterns we can use to dominate with digital - even as we anticipate new innovations like NFTs, DAOs, web3, and the metaverse. In this session, you'll learn how to lead in the emerging discipline of digital quality and find out what's really being transformed.

##### Learning Objectives:

##### · Find out how stories of digital transformation in the past can help us lead into the future

##### · Understand the value and potential of new entrants (NFTs, DAOs, web3, and the metaverse)

##### · Explore how digital transformation experiences can inform how you lead and manage change
