At this private event, our guests will be treated to hors d’oeuvres and drinks provided by Kapow (bring your appetite), and a $150 Sunglass Hut shopping voucher.

The term “Digital Transformation” has lost impact via the dilution of the phrase, but at its core, digital transformation is the creation of a competitive advantage by effectively building a portfolio of internal and external products. Large enterprise companies have long been searching for the answer to one simple-yet-critical question: how do I create a competitive advantage for my organization? The answer, though multifaceted, is clearer than ever before.

By fostering a culture shift and leveraging emerging product and SDLC methodologies, an enterprise can build a transformation roadmap and construct product-focused teams to help them traverse the gap between their current state and their ideal future state.

Join Levvel in Atlanta, GA on September 25, 2019, for an in-depth panel discussion around how to successfully build an effective product-first organization. We’ll cover how to earn buy-in, shift innovation culture, create a transformation roadmap, and much more.
