Change is Easy - Except for the People

  • It’s easy to see digital transformation as a technology challenge. However, it’s the “soft stuff,” the people side of change, that is the key to a successful transformation. The oil and gas industry has tremendous depth of expertise in engineering, operations excellence, capital execution, safety and many other fields.

    Digital companies are masters at developing modern intuitive and easy to use software which can transform business models. There is still a huge gap in addressing the people side of change. Attitudes, perspectives, emotions and opinions about digital need greater attention for digital change initiatives to find success. Change management, the people side of digital, is in fact the key focus.

What you did in the short period of time is amazing. Let me give you my personal feedback, the message was great, you were focused on the message, the delivery was excellent (you were animated and you made it fun to watch), you related to actual examples and the Q&A very nicely done. Could not have been better (I ignore the digital bumps…. It really did not impact the session). We have more than 270 people online and a good number of queries indicating the high level of interests. So thank you very much for what you did earlier today. I hope we will have more of these sessions in future.
