Dr Jim Hamill, MD, Future Digital Leaders 

As covered in previous Tech20 events, a convergence of disruptive technologies (the Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT, Automation, Augmented Reality, 3D Printing etc) is threatening to transform the oil & gas industry at a faster rate than at any time in history.

The need for operators to #adaptordie, to transform digitally, is now widely accepted (isn’t it?). Few senior executives remain to be convinced (do they?).

With the focus shifting from the WHY to the HOW of transformation, more attention needs to be paid to the people, organisation and cultural aspects of successful change management.

Many current digital transformation programmes will fail because of their inability to manage these so called ‘soft’ issues. Technology is just the facilitator of change.

The core premise of this fast-moving and highly interactive session is that oil & gas is facing a crisis of digital leadership. A new breed of senior executive is urgently required - leaders of change for the digital era.

Successful industry transformation requires strong digital leadership combined with cultural change and digital skills development. On its own, technology is not enough.
