About The Session

Customer First Digital Transformation – From the Center Out

What does it take to become a true digital company? You have to think like a digital company. It is a mindset, culture, and operating model shift. Learn how Nissan is approaching this transformation through the lens of the customer and their underlying needs. Nissan’s transformation is rooted in orienting around and mastering a set of distinct customer journeys, a customer ecosystem, digital products with digital owners, innovation to solve the right customer problem, and data as a strategic asset. Success requires approaching the business in a new manner – from the center out.
