As companies reimagine themselves to succeed in a digital economy, a key question is whether they can coordinate existing capabilities to become “Future Ready.” Or do they need more radical organizational surgery, as many companies were not designed for the requirements of the digital era. During this Masterclass, we will look at the typical goals of digital business transformation – dramatically improved customer experience and significantly streamlined operations – and ask what it takes to achieve them and who leads and contributes to the effort. We will use a combination of exemplar case studies from a variety of industries and an MIT CISR survey of nearly 1000 companies to identify four possible pathways to transformation and the bottom line benefits of transformation. Using illustrative cases, we will discuss the issues and challenges associated with each pathway and identify best practices.
