Moving Beyond Simply Turbo charging
Through “Digitalization”
• Not simply “the same, but faster or more
efficiently”:
- Analog leaders are executives who apply IT
to create online versions of current
institutional "business" models.
- Digital leaders are technology-savvy
executives who create new value and
funding using digital technology to build new
digital institutional "business" models that
transform value, funding and performance
