One of the most critical questions executives face today is how external shocks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, impact business operations and whether digital transformation efforts safeguard business operations against external threats. Although empirical data is still emerging, organizations that made investments in digital transformation prior to the pandemic appear to have been better positioned to react to changes, responded more quickly and effectively, and adapted faster and further than their peers. Paradoxically, however, within the organization the impacts of the pandemic on business operations varied drastically, depending on the type of work and where it was located. For example, digital technologies that enabled growth in the sales function through online ordering were viewed as highly successful. However, without the capability of the operations function to support the commensurate growth in production and delivery, the pandemic created a significant and persistent crisis. While attention has been mostly directed at digital transformation efforts in information-oriented organizations that can completely digitize operations, I will talk about some of the pandemic-driven digital transformation efforts of a dominant, incumbent industry player that manufactures purely physical products. Such insights are necessary for the organizations that must balance the physical and digital elements of their business operations to meet the ever-increasing demand for consumer and industrial products. 
 Learning Objectives of this Session:
  1. Define digital transformation in organizations
  2. Explain the digital technologies driving digital transformation
  3. Introduce the organizational framework of value chain
  4. Review the digi-physicality matrix in the context of digital technologies and the value chain
  5. Highlight best practices and lessons learned about digital transformation during the Covid crisis from a large, global manufacturing Pre-digital Company
Each quarter we will schedule a sessions for each of the following tracks:

  • One of the BABOK six knowledge Areas
  • BA Trends - Agile, Cybersecurity, Data Science and Analytics, Product Ownership Analysis
  • Leadership and Career Develoment
