Morning Keynotes -Digital Transformation & Next Generation Student Engagement
The Yin and Yang of education in the digital era
  • Richard Palmer - CIO Advisor & Principal Analyst, Ovum
more

Viewing digital disruption as a technology issue is missing the point. Rather than being driven bottom-up, it is being driven student-in. The way Millennials interact with the world is starkly different from those of a generation ago. There many potential pitfalls on the journey to an agile, business-intimate IT organization. People, process and technology need to be in alignment for the transformation to succeed. While careful planning and excellent execution are critical, simply balancing the Yin and Yang of digital transformation can help leaders avoid, or at least minimize the impact of, hazards encountered along the way.

  • Yang: Empowering teams to get the job done
  • Yin: Achieving harmony amongst the chaos
  • Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows.” – Sun Tzu
