The digital economy results from billions of everyday online connections between people, businesses, devices, data and processes. With the recent pandemic, many organizations are pushed to digitalize to meet the new demands of business.

With this already taking shape and undermining conventional notions, all executives need to be aware of the different leadership perspectives on the future of business structures and business interactions as well as the changing consumer behaviour and how it will impact the way customers interact with your business. Many organizations are looking to leverage on this change to power their next cycle of growth post Covid 19.

This white paper is a collection of insights gained from industry leaders from various sectors who participated in a Thought Leadership Round Table Session in Nov 2021. During the session, they shared their digitalization journey experiences. From the discussion, the following key areas of concern were uncovered, and we address them in detail in this white paper:

  • Analyzing the business digital transformation challenges – What has worked so far to sustain growth
  • Understanding the key trends and challenges faced across industries in digitalizing the business
  • How can organizations better manage their digitalization journey?
  • How can businesses collaborate across industries to enable an accelerated digitalization journey?

This paper was written with the support of the following notable business leaders
