In her keynote Perry Hewitt, leader in digital strategies, shares how to go through digital transformation with the around 450 decision makers present. A five-point checklist for success, from involving executive leaders and the right talent acquisition will ensure the creation of a culture of innovation. The Harvard Chief Design Officer, who successfully lead the Harvard Institute into the digital era, further states social media costumers turned into co-creators, as digitalization blurs lines, and so their involvement is key. As is the correct analysis of collected data. As a last piece of advice Hewitt shares that the constant work in progress that is digital transformation must be "lead with the mindset of learning over knowing".
