Digital Transformation workshop series

The Irish Computer Society has partnered with Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet to offer ICS Members a free Digital Transformation workshop series. The series will be brought to you by Digital Transformation Author, YouTuber and Educator, Niall McKeown. Niall is CEO of Ionology and creator of several of the world’s most advanced and widely used digital transformation frameworks and models.

The series will consist of three 90 minute workshops aimed to drive and assist in the digital transformation of your organisation: 

1. The Role of Leaders, Managers & Decision Makers in Transformation – Wednesday 6th April, 12.30-14.00 

Given time and budget, most technologists deliver exactly what they’ve been asked to deliver.  The biggest challenge is in what is being asked for.  In this seminar we look at the role of leadership in strategic planning using predictive models and the urgency for them to understand the business capabilities of emerging technology.  We also look at how ICT managers can help non-technical leaders become better equipped. 

2. Why Digital Transformations Fail Even When Technologists Deliver – Wednesday 27th April, 12.30-14.00 

Digital transformation is not just about technology.  It’s about strategy, culture, innovation and politics.  Studies show that over 70% of digital transformations fail to fulfil their objectives.  The reasons are rarely technical.  In this webinar we examine the critical elements needed to make a digital transformation successful and what ICT practitioners can do about it.

3. Are We Simply Digitising or Are We Transforming – Wednesday 11th May, 12.30-14.00 

Most digital transformation projects end up being operational upgrades. This is not transformational.   The strategy has failed to deliver transformational change to the business.  In the private sector we see this through stagnation of sales growth.  In the public sector we mistake citizen expectation as transformation.  In this webinar we call out the difference and what ICT managers can do about it. 

These webinar are suitable for technical and non-technical decision makers, alike. They are also stand alone events, so you can attend as many or as few as you wish. Sessions are only open to ICS members and number are limited so please do register early if you would like to attend.
