The collapse of oil prices and the ravages and the possibilities of the pandemic are becoming clear. Management in oil and gas should be going after those cute but problematic hedgehogs guarding the status quo.
IBM held its annual ReInvention event in Calgary and asked me to provide the opening remarks, as scene-setting for the panel discussion that followed. In case you weren’t able to attend, here’s what I said.
Recently I fielded an email enquiry from a large international oil and gas company asking my views on what should be included in the scope of a digital transformation. A bit like asking for the table of contents from my book.
Many digital companies seem trapped in a never-ending cycle of pilot projects and trials with oil and gas companies that never progress beyond the pilot stage to full deployment. And that’s a shame for both.
