Leading Cultural Change for Digital Transformation

Herminia Ibarra

Professor of Organizational Behavior
London Business School (UK)

Most leaders today are trying to do the same things: Help their organizations become more agile, more innovative, more digitally savvy, and more customer centric. But, sooner or later, they come up against entrenched values and behaviors, and progress stalls. Traditional mindsets and “ways of doing things around here” impede the cultural changes necessary for any real transformation to occur.  In this keynote, Herminia Ibarra draws on diverse business case studies to show the leadership actions, not just at the top, but throughout the organization, that can make or break the success of our efforts to make our organizations more flexible, nimble, and innovative.
