Session 1: Navigating the digitalisation jungle in the post-covid world
For many larger oil & gas companies, there are layers of decentralised processes, technologies and systems. Multiply it by all the media hype, marketing claims and general confusion about what to do, and progress becomes very difficult. How to define the right priority amidst a rapidly evolving technology ecosystem in the post-covid world?

TROUBLE-SHOOTING ROUND TABLES. SOLVING THE INDUSTRY’S GRAND CHALLENGES
Round table 1. How to reinvent your business model and develop the right digital transformation strategy?
Arguably the true impact of digital will be the transformation of business models for entities throughout the oil and gas value chain. But what does this transformation even mean? Where to start, and in what order? How to unlock value and which initiatives can help drive that value?

Digital Transformation Analyst
LUX RESEARCH
Round table 2. How to bring the transformation from the boardroom to the field?
Even if digital strategy is endorsed by the board, the translation of that to the people doing the work and impacted by the work needs to be black and white. What are the critical moves companies must make to build an enduring digital culture at the leadership and operational levels?

Round table 3. Is collaboration the new competition?
The path to success no longer lies in clawing your way to the top of the heap, but in nudging your way to the centre of the network. How is digital transformation redefining the relationship between oil & gas companies and their suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders? What exactly will the ecosystem look like in practice when this competitive shift really takes place?
