Presentation Abstract

B2B Digitalisation: What are the top challenges and how to overcome them

Over the past year, digitalisation within B2B companies has taken off with increasing speed.  Top decision makers are now convinced that their business strategy needs to be a digital strategy. But implementing digitalisation is full of challenges.  From designing new organisations and changing well-established processes to assessing the cost and return on investment for digital transformation, the challenges to overcome might feel endless.

Learn how to overcome the challenges that your company is facing, or will soon face, in your digital transformation journey.  These challenges fall under four main categories: organisation, resources, tools & systems, and management mindset.  See a case study on how one material supplier applied a step-by-step approach to digital transformation of their company.
