Digital Solutions GalleryThe “Digital Solutions Gallery” Series


The current coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has affected us all.   The Ohio State University and its Digital Solutions Gallery™ series remain committed to the health and well-being of our entire community, and have now taken steps to reduce any potential virus-related risk to all parties affiliated with our programs.

Please note the adjusted dates for all remaining program series sessions in 2020.

Today’s senior executives continue to feel the pressures of a shifting customer landscape as the digital economy is further upending every industry.  Customer expectations are rising with on every interaction with providers.

The vast majority of executives now realize that “digital transformation” is not just a “technology thing”.  It is instead about a growing mandate to responsively transform solutions more broadly into newer digital-based business models and methodologies. 

The word, “ongoing”, is real key.  Research indicates that companies have actually had their eye on trying to further digitize for the past twenty years!  So what has been holding us back?  Are we more concerned about doing it wrong than we are about actually doing it right?  Maybe.  Perhaps it is time to re-focus more on our ambitions than on the obstacles we perceive as standing in the way.

After lagging for the past twenty years, further playing a digital waiting game is not going to help, especially when now compounded by the more restrictive environments that are now gripping the nation.

Wise executives see this a perfect time to increase their competitive separation, while others may be treading more cautiously.  The good news is that if you continue to struggle in mapping your direction and capabilities to your level of willingness and means, you do not have to go there alone.

The easiest and most effective way to fast-track you progress is to learn from others who have gone before.  By leveraging, synthesizing and adopting the successful experiences of executives who had made the shift, you position yourself to accelerate your pace of change.

Throughout 2020, the “Digital Solutions Gallery™” will be conducting a series of vital and informative programs on the theme of “Digital Transformation; The Vital Journey”, wherein participants will engage with noted thought-leaders and successful executives to gain a better appreciation of not only what is coming, but also a better appreciation of just how its value might be captured. 

These programs will be a mix of recurring one-hour virtual events showcasing top thought-leaders addressing issues and strategies now affecting us all (the “Digital Solutions Gallery Virtual Keynote Series”) and the regular in-person “Digital Solutions Gallery™” for which this program has become widely know (beginning again as our environmental conditions will allow).

Please plan to join us in both settings as this widely acclaimed unique and distinctive forum where senior leaders of all types come together to collectively learn from noted thought leaders, share their related experiences and insights, as well as collaboratively work together to attack common issues within this crucial agenda.
