At CIO Edge, ADAPT’s Senior Analyst, Peter Hind, moderated a discussion between Johnson & Johnson Medical, McKinsey, Westpac and AMP technology leaders.

The leaders discussed how to lead modernisation and how to quantify value. Modernisation represents much more than technology and a meaningful change in mindsets, people, and culture.

For IT leaders to drive change, they are often learning business acumen. But there is also value in teaching the business to become digitally literate. This will foster empowered contributors to innovation across the organisation.

Value is more than dollars, and affects customers and ecosystem partners. CIOs must empower staff to align their own purpose with the organisational mission

You can watch the full panel debate on Tech Leaders Debate Why Modernisation Represents More than Technology on the ADAPT Research and Advisory platform.
