Digital Transformation Oversight

Digital Transformation Oversight

Technological advances can dramatically disrupt businesses, transforming everything from customer expectations and business operations, to the design and delivery of products and services. By some measures, companies are facing an unprecedented level of disruption; as new entrants and incumbents vie against one another to create new business models and boost revenues by leveraging emerging technologies. Directors and senior executives who are looking to thrive in this hyper-competitive environment will need to adapt their management and governance practices to effectively help their companies exploit opportunities and minimize risks.

This Resource Center is meant to provide corporate leaders with strategic and tactical guidance as they embark on their digital transformation journeys. Please see the Cyber-Risk Resource Center for cybersecurity oversight.
