Leading Through Digital Transformations: Is Your Organization Prepared?

Business transformation – and digital transformation in particular – can be very challenging in high complexity, dynamic environments and unfortunately, most organizational change efforts fall short of their intended outcomes. In the April Alumni Advantage Virtual Event, Dr. Mary Uhl-Bien, the BSNF Railway Endowed Professor in Leadership at the Neeley School of Business, and Brian Alink, Sr Vice President Product Management at Capital One, will discuss critical success factors, key challenges, typical barriers in complex environments - and why a new kind of leadership is required to set your organization up for success.
