The role of IT in delivering successful change and digital transformation in insurance

| The Gherkin

Developing and implementing a successful change strategy

Selecting, or even implementing the right technology is rarely the critical factor in digital transformation.

87% of digital transformation projects fail to deliver their intended benefits due to poor adoption and business buy-in. A recent study suggests that up to 50% of the total transformation budget should be reserved for adoption and business change.

This briefing will explore the the critical aspects of ensuring your digital transformation delivers – specifically, how does IT influence and enable the business to ensure technology projects are embraced across the organisation?

Attend this breakfast briefing to discuss these chalenges and more, with the objective of bucking the trend.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Overcoming the cultural challenges to deliver successful change: securing top team buy-in, sharing the vision, convincing the nay-sayers
  • Overcoming the operational barriers to ensure successful technology and organisational change
  • Identifying the key areas of focus to deliver and achieve successful adoption within digital transformation

"I really enjoyed the event this morning, a number of 'tracks' were very thought provoking - its especially good to be able to feel comfortable.... to be able to set questions running in the group where one genuinely doesn't have an answer but see how others might tackle it or what they are thinking.. great stuff, would like to see much more on this subject."

"Provided a perfect opportunity for senior colleagues and competitors to share their issues and how they were resolved or mitigated. Outcome is there is: there is no perfect solution, and reliance predominantly should be on our own staff and the technology is the enabler, and shouldn't be the taskmaster."
