Within the framework of the Vietnam DX Summit 2021, on the afternoon of December 2, 2021, Mr. Le Vu Minh – Director of FPT Digital Innovation and Strategy Consulting Division attended a Q&A session with experts with the topic “The Digital Transformation Methodology” aims to provide a digital transformation perspective and approach in the journey from strategy formulation to implementation.
Mr. Minh believes that the methodology will be one of the important answers to the questions: How can businesses succeed in digital transformation when digital transformation is a big story and creates many changes in the business? How can we balance between change and stability in this process?
In the methodology, building a business’s digital transformation strategy needs a harmonious combination of three factors: business, technology, and people. Not only that, businesses need to ensure that they have enough medium and long-term vision, with a focus on prioritizing immediate issues, thereby planning an appropriate roadmap for their businesses and organizations, towards the goal of sustainable development and growing growth.
Digital transformation in Vietnam has brought unexpected results with unprecedented changes in all areas of socio-economic life. Awareness of businesses, management agencies and society about digital transformation is spreading rapidly and strongly. In addition to the goal of accelerating and further improving efficiency in the national digital transformation, this effective and positive transformation is achieved through the promotion programs of state agencies, government agencies and professional organizations, with the constant efforts of businesses, especially technology enterprises – the pioneering force of the comprehensive digital transformation process.
