Podcast 134 - How can L&D support digital transformation?
But what exactly do we mean when we talk about digital transformation, and where does culture fit into the equation? This week on the podcast, Ross Dickie and Owen Ferguson are joined by Julie Drybrough from Fuchsia Blue and Daniel Caborn from Manchester Metropolitan University to discuss the role L&D can play in supporting digital transformation.

In this episode you'll find out about

  • What 'digital transformation' actually means. 
  • The role of culture in digital-transformation programmes.
  • How to get people to buy into digital transformation

A summary of the Deloitte research Ross mentions can be found on the HBR website.

If you'd like to brush up on your physics, the two podcast episodes Dan refers to are The Measurement of Time and The Physics of Time.
