Strategizing Digital Transformation

George Niece, a Chief Digital Officer at Digital Transformation Strategies participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Strategizing Digital Transformation”.



The “Digital Global Age” is upon us! Nations: its Governments, Industries, Organizations, Academia and Individuals (NGIOA-I) have entered a time in which digital technologies enables them to not only be in constant communication with each other, but also be in contact with physical devices and platforms to access and share information across cyberspace-geospace and space (CGS)—and as a result to find new ways of doing things.

Digital technologies are becoming a survival necessity to each and every nation: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals (NGIOA-I).

While they help develop much needed alertness, adjustment, adaptation and create new opportunities in cyberspace-geospace and space (CGS), it is the ability to adapt quickly to the changes brought on by the digital technologies of the digital global age that emerges as a vital necessity and capability-for digital transformation today.

In addition to the ability to adapt quickly, it is also important to understand that it is the strategy and scope, not technology, that fundamentally drives digital transformation of a digital global age. Digital transformation is all about people and it is the people: and its ability to adjust, adapt and innovate– not technology, that are the most important pieces in the NGIOA digital transformation puzzle in CGS.

For a successful digital transformation, each and every entity within and across NGIOA must learn to “forget” old ways of thinking and doing things to uncover how digital technology can help them disrupt and find new ways of doing things to overtake competitors of a digital global age.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
