Digital Transformations Require an Analog Solution...People

Ms Kerrie Campbell

Flinders University

Most organisations in the world are talking about the digital transformations that are occurring in their organisations, this is desperately needed to keep pace with the world, but a recent Gartner paper found that 83% of organisations report that their digital initiatives have failed to reach scale or deliver bene ts. At Flinders University we believe that’s because there is a secret solution to the digital problem and the solution is an analog solution one......People ! People are at the heart of any initiative and for these initiative to be successful we need to change the way we work, the way we think and the way in which we collaborate. 

Flinders University has changed the way that people work and the way in which projects are delivered, we have put the customers truly at the centre of our IT universe by changing our business model from a classic IT structure to a customer centric model. Our governance structures have changed to be completely business led IT.

This is the new way IT is working in the world, this change has to happen to make IT more relevant to the University’s business and Flinders is leading the charge with these changes.

Flinders University has changed it’s governance models, business models, nance models and the frameworks for project initiation and delivery. The digital transformation is a business problem NOT just an IT problem and Flinders University is responding in a way that is providing some really interesting results.

This talk will take you on the journey Flinders University has been on in the Agile transformation through to the business led IT transformation, we will discuss the lessons we have learnt on the way
and some of the experiments that we are conducting to continue on the transformational path within the University.  

The discussion will show a new IT model that has been implemented at Flinders, a new governance model, a new way of working without the use of a traditional PMO and the artefacts that have been developed on this journey.
