Don’t Risk Your Smart Digital Transformation in 2021

Is digital transformation a popular topic at your company? Firms have been attempting to transform for over a decade but often with little success.

Join us as we chat with Amber Haley, veteran Agile Coach and Product Leader, on how organizations can best achieve meaningful change as well as continued success via smart digital transformation.

Smart transformation is like tending flowers. The problem of unhealthy flowers are often not the issue of the flowers, but the environment they are in.
