To Build, Buy, or Borrow? -- That is the Question

From artificial intelligence to ERM platforms, the increased rate at which tech is changing business is also speeding up the need to make decisions. On top of that, the customer base has evolved to be a more social, mobile and demanding consumer. As executives are faced with how to transform their businesses, deciding whether to borrow, buy or build these emerging technologies is one that many grapple with daily. In order to better understand which strategy to execute on and when, we'll feature a chief executive who can speak to how digital disruption is driving their biggest decisions.

Presentation: Rethink Your Business for the Digital Age

Every business begun before the Internet now faces the same challenge: How to transform to compete in a digital economy? David Rogers argues that digital transformation is not about technology—it’s about upgrading your strategic thinking. Drawing on case studies from Domino's to Caesar’s Casino, and Toyota to The New York Times, Rogers shows how traditional businesses need to rethink their approach to strategy in five domains—customers, competition, data, innovation, and value. David will prepresent on the practical framework to help you rethink your own business—to unlock growth in the digital age.
