Researchers from two different knowledge areas of The Conference Board—Bart van Ark, chief economist, and Mary Young, principal researcher, human capital—come together for an informal and unscripted conversation about digital transformation and the opportunities and risks it presents for companies. Building on several recent reports, the researchers will engage each other and their webcast audience in a deeper dialogue about digital transformation’s impacts.

Practical insights:
• Which economic and business results from digital transformation can we already measure?
• What are the obstacles for companies?
• What can we learn from successful companies’ experiences?

Who should attend: This webcast will be of value to CxOs and leaders in strategy, digital business, technology, human capital, supply chain, marketing, risk, and sales.
