PAC Workshops: Strategies and Success Factors for Digital Transformation

The massive pervasion of digital technologies is currently shaking up business models, value chains and ecosystems in almost all industries. It is forcing companies to fundamentally re-think their business strategies and organizational structures. This digital transformation is going far beyond a few individual digital projects in marketing or customer service. Companies that would like to be fit for the future in the digital age must consistently implement customer-centric business strategies; they must recognize the intelligent use of data as essential competitive advantage for themselves; and they must establish a new culture of management and collaboration, in which innovation can thrive and be realized. 

With three new workshops, PAC supports CEOs, IT managers as well as sales and marketing decision-makers in designing workable strategies for digital transformation. The goal of our workshops is to analyze the major opportunities and challenges of digital transformation for your enterprise, to identify relevant fields of action, and to determine priorities for their implementation.
