About the Event

Many executives understand the importance of a successful digital transformation for their organization; however, potential key barriers are preventing them being digitally enabled.

This session identifies key potential barriers to digital transformation and viable strategies for small and mid-market business owners and executives. By avoiding these pitfalls, executives can quickly and effectively transform their business to lower costs, implement better operational controls, and offer more competitive prices to eliminate the risk of digital disruptors.

The 7 Steps to Digital Transformation outlined the steps to a successful digital transformation. This topic is the next session in the series to guide small and midmarket companies through a successful digital transformation.
