I hope you’re doing well today. Look at the beautiful day that we have today in Ouchy, Lausanne, which is basically also to the place where I worked at IMD Business School for almost 10 years.
I mean, clearly, IMD enabled me to kick-off my marketing career. And I will be forever grateful to the people who supported me over all these years. And today, it’s my turn to look into becoming an IMD student. Because I’m interested in IMD’s digital transformation programs led by Michael Wade.
Well, it kind of feels like going back to the roots. And I’m really, really excited about this. And just like a human-centered marketing strategy, I believe that digital transformation starts foremost with people too. I mean, the first question you need to ask yourself is how willing is your company’s culture to change? Do you have to buy-in from the top of management?
This is a key fundamental to any digital transformation journey. The second question you need to answer is do you have analytics accurately in place? And are you measuring your consumers interactions with your brand and their various touch points? And last but not least, the third question is, are you using your data in a meaningful way?
It’s just not enough to have a lot of data. The secret sauce is in using artificial intelligence to optimize your business processes, which enable you to enhance the customer experience because the customer experience, making that exceptional, that’s what you have to do today.
I am super excited to go and learn to broaden my knowledge in the never-ending journey of digital transformation and I will not miss sharing with you my learnings along the way in my upcoming videos.
So stay tuned and I hope this resonates with you and if you would like to discuss your marketing challenges with me, please feel free to reach out to me I’m super happy to help you.
But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright. Even in beautiful Ouchy and if you look in the back, there is Valais / Wallis. So I’m saying just cheers and it’s always great to visit IMD in Ouchy and you know what, talk to you soon again from another great place. Bye.
