Episode 13 of Leading Digital Transformation

Max Blumberg Interviewed

Max Blumberg - a visiting Professor at Leeds University Business School - explains why you’d better get input from people on what changes would be acceptable and what changes would be best. Otherwise no one will use the changed process, for which you might have paid a consulting firm a small fortune to conjure up!

In this episode, Professor Michael Wade - author of the books ‘Orchestrating Transformation’ and ‘Digital Vortex’ - unpacks the transformation challenge with a particular focus on responding to digital economy threats and opportunities.
