Sadin on Digital” episodes explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business. Wayne Sadin and I focus in particular on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, Wayne and I talk about a set of four topics that Wayne connects with a highly creative thread, including Wayne’s forthcoming article that defines the term digital transformation, including a wide variety of things that DT is not.

Episode 32

The Big Themes:

  • Now you can put your own paint on it: That’s going to be a terrific thing for the clients, the buyers into next year and the year after.
  • It’s a mindset change: Message for the board and for the CEO is to think about whether you’re really changing the nature of the business.
  • The secret sauce for the vertical: We have to work in the wider ecosystem of that industry, whether it’s healthcare, retail, manufacturing, or financial services.

The Big Quotes:

  • “I’ve got an article coming out later this week or next week on Acceleration Economy where I define the term digital transformation – and the opposite.”
  • “Downside of this you got to get on this bandwagon, or the acceleration is going to flatten you like roadkill.”
  • “We don’t have to worry about things like servers and storage and networks anymore as ITP, and neither do the vendors.”
