“Compelling both internal and external collaboration, this office will allow cross-functional client needs and solutions to deploy in a seamless, simultaneous manner. We’re eager for clients to experience innovation and digital transformation on an even more elevated scale that significantly moves the needle as they pursue broad, complex business objectives.”
The Transformation Office was assembled to provide strategic leadership and vision to advance innovation and bridge the executive relationship to adoption. The goal of the office launch is to create a full strategic platform that is easily replicable to drive portfolio-wide efficiencies in innovation. Accelerating deployment, it will allow clients to receive more value sooner in the timeline of their engagement.
