Jen McArther from Festival of Maintenance has interviewed Alex in the preparation for their 2019 Festival. It’s a great summation of her talk from last year.

Two things have changed fundamentally – again they are simple things, not big things. Firstly, collaboration and co-creation: inviting people who see it differently. There is a certain humbleness and vulnerability in these processes, whereas in the past there was a fear that openly critical conversations could kill creativity.

Ten things about digital transformation by 10 Digital Ladies

10 Digital Ladies is a networking group for women working in digital practitioner roles such as product management, strategy, engineering and marketing.

Their panel about digital transformation had some interesting insights about inclusive stories, using digital tools well, and managing an organisation going through changes. 

We live in an age of ever increasing complexity. To help us cope with this rate of change, organisations have looked for simple answers to complex questions – adopting digital technologies, tactics, methodologies and ‘digital ways of working’ as the silver bullets of organisation change.

But over and over again we see digital programmes failing to deliver real, meaningful change. 10 Digital Ladies decided to ask why, and what could be done differently at our meetup “Why it’s time digital grew up: transformation beyond easy answers”.
