Fireside Chat: What’s your digital business model?
Like every year, the 2018 Symposium is bringing you the writers of an exceptional book, ‘What’s your digital business model?’. Peter Weill and Stephanie Woerner have done a wonderful job of laying out the pillars of a digital business. We invite you to the fireside chat and have a face-to-face interaction with the authors!
Based on five years of study at the MIT Center for Information Systems Research, the book provides a powerful yet simple framework that has been field-tested globally with more than a dozen senior management teams. In the words of the authors, digitization is moving companies' business models on two dimensions: from value chains to digital ecosystems, and from a fuzzy understanding of the needs of end customers to a sharper one. The book touches on various aspects of the growing challenge to "go digital”.

The Fireside Chat will be moderated by Wolfgang Bauriedel .
Speakers Wanted
