Featured project

Hackathon Series at DBS Bank

The probability is that your CEO has announced that ‘Digital Transformation’ or ‘getting Digital’ is the top priority, and you need to quickly understand what that really means, who has done this before, what is there to learn, and how to get yourself up to speed really really quickly.

You need to accelerate your organisation’s Digital Transformation, you know that people, culture and mindset is important and you’ve started reading some articles on ‘Digital Transformation’ – but where to get started? And how to maximise the probability of success, and make sure this isn’t just another ‘initiative’ that fails to deliver?

You are probably looking for peers who have been on this journey a little before you, that have learned through experience what works and what doesn’t so you don’t have to learn the hard way. 

You are looking for a partner and a guide on the journey of developing Digital Mindset and helping create a culture of curiosity and engagement with the digital world. 

You are looking for people who have a proven track record of driving digital transformation at major global corporations, not just as consultants and advisers, but also as senior corporate leaders who have been there and done it and are now available to help you.

We will work with you to design and deliver compelling learning experiences that will take your leaders on a journey of discovery in this fast moving digital world and equip them for success. 

They will learn to experiment and prototype, to drive decision making with data, to explore and thrive in this brave new digital world – and above all, to lean into the future with confidence and capabilities. 

Ideally we will start with a programme for the c-suite, followed by top talent and senior leaders, and in parallel, do programmes for the HR leadership team to make sure that HR is capable of helping drive this transformation and are equally digitally savvy.
