Join us for a 3D CIC: Home Edition virtual event on September 9, 2020, to hear about the journey Newport News Shipbuilding has been on concerning digital transformation.
We will begin with identifying why it can be so challenging for companies to change and provide a framework of people, processes, and tools for digital readiness. Then we will provide a practical approach based on lessons learned to your own transformations. This presentation will provide strategic insight into how to focus your business on the right opportunities, gain alignment internally, and lessons learned related to the journey.
Learn how Newport News Shipbuilding is leveraging existing digital readiness models to answer these strategic questions:
- How do we gain alignment across the organization?
- Are we focusing on the right projects and programs to shake-out success?
- Are we spending the budget on the right things?
- How do we turn a digital readiness model into actionable roadmaps, next steps, and projects which provide measurable results?
Philip Jennings will share a summary of the HII-NNS plans to meet these digital readiness models.
Live audience Q&A will follow the presentation.
