Friday Fireside Chat - Rita McGrath & Gisbert Ruehl, CEO, Kloeckner & Co. SA
Digital transformation, seeing around corners and being prepared for major inflection points all come together in the story of Kloeckner. Gisbert Ruehl, their visionary CEO, saw that to survive and thrive, Kloeckner would need to be able to embrace digital technologies and create a customer experience second-to none. Kloeckner's story is a tremendous example of strategically driven digital transformation. We'll be asking Gisbert about how he led this change, what the predictable obstacles were and what other organizations can learn from their experiences.
