“The Digital Workplace Is Key
to Digital Innovation”

Success in the digital era at established companies depends on transforming how work is done to create digital workplaces and improve employee experience. This entails addressing two dimensions—responsive leadership and employee connectedness—with three design levers for each dimension.

In a new article in MIS Quarterly Executive, Kristine Dery, Ina M. Sebastian, and Nick van der Meulen explore the transformational journeys of three established companies: DBS Bank in Singapore, Deloitte Australia, and AUDI AG in Germany. The authors show both how digital workplaces drive success and how IT leaders play a critical role in the transformation, and provide recommendations for CIOs about to embark on workplace transformation journeys.

With this article, MISQE offers a podcast summary and a two-page executive summary.
