Who should start Digital Transformation initiatives at companies?

Marcelo Negrini, Spread Director of Digital Transformation – This is a frequently asked question that can be confusing. It is important to explain Digital Transformation can be divided into two fronts: technological transformation, generating digital solutions to enhance or create new business models; and cultural transformation, deeper and more complex, with the adoption of lean, agile ways of working, people empowerment, and thinking about business processes from the clients’, not the company’s, point of view.

Whether it is to enable new business models or change company culture, Digital Transformation is required by the market and clients themselves, who demand new digital experiences and streamlined processes. To meet those requirements, all areas in the company – IT, sales, marketing, and others – work together to create innovative digital products and services, bringing in turn changes in culture, capabilities, and business models, in a continuous improvement process.
