  • Oaks Annexe 1

For a discipline that is based on zeroes and ones, IT people are exceedingly sloppy about their use of non-programming language. Take the term “digital transformation”, that everybody seems to be talking about. What does it mean? Transformation of what? What is digital anyway? And while we’re at it, what’s the difference between digital and IT? Mark will pinpoint some paradigms and perspectives to peruse. ...

Discovering Outcomes With shared understanding of needs and agreement on outcomes, you're already halfway there!

The Digital Service Partner

  • Oaks Annexe 1

One of the major shifts that seems to go hand-in-hand with digital transformation, is a degree of convergence of business and IT. In other words, business and IT no longer sit 'opposite' each other, but next to each other. In this interactive workshop, we'll explore the often troubled relationship between business and IT, and how "digital" shakes it up for the service partner. ...

  • Sports Club

Debatable Data We live in a world in which our advice is only as valuable as the data we can provide to support it. We rely on data not just to make decisions for ourselves and our businesses, but also to inform the arguments we deploy to win the support of stakeholders, colleagues, and clients. Data-driven solutions, we are told, speak for themselves and how we communicate them to others is more a question of style than substance. This workshop will show how data can be used to support m...
