Workshop: Building a Foundation for Digital Transformation

  • Thursday, October 31 - EDT

    Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel
  • The main challenge faced regarding digital transformation lies often with an organization’s ability break from the “traditional” thinking, methods and tools that have been employed for years across the manufacturing enterprise. Using traditional approaches guarantees a manufacturer will only enhance operational excellence (OPEX) while realizing only incremental improvements. Transformative change requires a break from the normal way of approaching projects. This session will explore how to break from the institutionalized approach of product delivery to focus on pro-actively addressing customers’ needs with true organizational digital transformation that enables manufacturers to leap beyond opex to COMPEX – Competitive Excellence.

    This session is led by Jonathan Alexander of Albemarle and Louis Halvorsen of Northwest Analytics.
