Are you a seasoned project or program manager who wants to hear and learn from experienced practitioners and like-minded professionals on how to strategically manage uncertainties and challenges while leading digital transformation through project leadership? 

Digital Transformation is commonly defined as an integration of digital technology into different aspects of business to deliver value to the customers. This year’s theme ‘Leading Digital Transformation in the Era of Innovation’ will explore the impact of rapidly changing technologies on how business is conducted and on the project management profession across industries. Hear thought-provoking presentations on the following topics and more:

  • What are the challenges and opportunities for project leaders to prepare their organizations for a digital transformation, and continue to have a competitive advantage at the global level? 
  • How do project leaders create and nurture the type of organizational culture that is conducive for digital transformation? 
  • What tools and approaches do organizations need to invest in to deliver projects that minimize risks, control costs and add value? 

Learn about real-world situations, studies and lessons that can be applied anywhere and anytime: practical case studies, techniques to assess and manage digital transformation, and motivating lessons learned from innovative leaders. We look forward to seeing you!
