Chief Digital Officers (CDOs) take on digital transformation in Capgemini Research Institute’s latest Digital Transformation Review

PARIS, 12-Feb-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The latest Digital Transformation Review by Capgemini Research Institute looks into what lessons can be learnt from the leaders in the digital transformation. The publication is titled “Taking digital transformation to the next level: Lessons from the leaders” and offers a valuable information on the changing nature of digital mastery and how advanced technologies are used by organizations to reinvent ways in creating value.

The paper highlights both pragmatic ideas and insights on best practices, and draws as well on a recent Capgemini Research Institute global report called “Understanding Digital Mastery Today: Why companies are struggling with their digital transformations.”

Digital leaders from large organizations were interviewed by Capgemini to gain first-hand perspectives on the key capabilities and characteristics required to succeed in a fast-evolving digital world.

Interviews include: Saskia Steinacker, Bayer; Sabine Scheunert, Daimler AG; Torbjørn Folgerø, Equinor; William Ruh, formerly with GE; Barbara Martin Coppola, IKEA; Frédéric Levaux, Legrand.

Jerome Buvat, Global Head of Research, and Head of the Capgemini Research Institute:

“The rules of the digital mastery game are constantly changing, and an array of advanced technologies – from artificial intelligence to the Internet of things – are reinventing how organizations create value; however, significant questions still remain about what capabilities and leadership qualities are required to seize this opportunity, particularly in terms of employee engagement, talent, and culture. This edition of the Digital Transformation Review looks to tackle those questions with real-world examples and perspective from CDOs of some of the world’s largest organizations. We thank these executives for sharing their insights on the key capabilities and characteristics required to succeed in a fast-changing digital world.”

Sabine Scheunert, Vice President Digital and IT Marketing/Sales Mercedes-Benz:

“With our internal initiative, ‘digitalONE,’ we established a program that applies new working methods – driven by the spirit of co-creation. It is an embodiment of a changing organization where silos are being broken down, teams and disciplines are merging, and a new common mindset emerges. digitalONE encapsulates our strategy, a team of people, as well as our spirit and mindset.”

Cyril Garcia, CEO of Capgemini Invent and member of the Group Executive Committee:

“There is no doubt that organizations understand the importance of digital transformation; however, the challenge is to stay competent with the ever-evolving technology landscape. To succeed, it is imperative to develop in unison digital capabilities, leadership capabilities, and the meaning of this journey. A key condition is to have employees truly included in an organization’s transformation agenda.”
