In this session, industrial clients will discuss their experiences deploying three modes of digital reinvention: 1) How using digital platforms to automate existing processes enables companies to “do things better"; 2) How rethinking business models to transform customer experiences enables companies to “do better things"; and 3) How confronting disruption by leveraging core expertise and data enables companies to “do new things”. Listen to these forward thinkers to determine which approach is best for your business.
