Digital transformation doesn't just happen. It requires a concerted effort and people need time and space to work through it. While it might start as a side project serious transformation can quickly snowball.
Its leadership can go in two ways; driven bya member of the C-Level typically a CTO, COO or CEO. Alternatively, a champion can emerge from anywhere within an organization; someone who sees an opportunity and is relentless in transforming what's within their power.
