AMCHAM Digital Transformation 2.0 Webinar

Thursday, November 03, 2022

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


Online Broadcast

Digital Transformation 1.0, initiated pre-COVID, was focused on creating a competitive advantage in the digitalized service offerings for firms. It was a managerial agenda enforced by strong internal work orders. The pandemic experience changed how we work and how people perceive work. Corporate values are becoming less enforceable, and core human resources prioritize personal employee preferences over corporate schedules. Work orders do not pass through the organization, as symbolized in the case of Apple and Tesla trying to get their employees to return to work. Now the primary concern of firms is how to increase productivity in the face of pre-COVID workstyle resistance. Digital Transformation 2.0 needs to be designed in a people-centric format to create a competitive advantage.

In this webinar, Professor Eric (Sung Soo) Kim will address the following questions:
1. What was Digital Transformation 1.0 as a Market Centric Strategy?
2. How have people and organizations changed during COVID?
3. What is Digital Transformation 2.0 as a Resource Centric Strategy?
4. How is Digital Transformation 2.0 implemented?
5. What are the business implications of Digital Transformation 2.0?

The session will also include a Fireside Discussion with guest speaker Dr. Dong-Seon Chang, addressing how digital transformation is changing the organizational and power dynamics in the firm.
