Digital Transformation: Business Model Disruption and the Human Cost

Posted: 6 March, 2018

John McGrath, Lecturer of Project Management and Consultancy at DIT will examine the human cost of the digital revolution during a lecture called ?Digital Transformation: Business Model Disruption and the Human Cost? on Thursday, 8 March at 6.30pm in DIT Aungier Street.

We are more digitally connected than we could have ever imagined and digital economy is growing at seven times the rate of the traditional economy. Traditional business models and ecosystems are under threat, but the transition to digital also presents many challenges and opportunities.

Successful digital transformation requires a new skillset, mindset and toolset. There is also a great deal of exaggeration about digital initiatives. All organisations know they must transform, but the possibilities of digital are so vast it is often hard to know what to focus on or even where to begin.

Digital will change and reshape every industry and sector just as digital has already transformed the Music & TV, Retail, Banking and Transport. The strategic or leadership challenge is that all organisations will have to reinvent their value proposition. Organisations will have to reimagine their business model is they are to stay relevant, and this will also have complex unforeseen implications.

Attendees interested in studying the MSc in Project Management will also have the opportunity to talk to John and other teaching staff about the programme.
