A board facing a technology tsunami: what could be done?

Thursday 02 May 2019

For this breakfast-seminar, Mr. Pascal Bécotte will share the tribulations of Target Canada’s market entry while he was front and center to the situation. As he was hired to build and run the Central Group of stores for Target Canada, he was not involved in the preceding 18 months of decisions and preparations, including the selection and implementation of all enterprise systems which were foundational to the Target Canada mission. The rest of the story is well known. His experience from an operational standpoint as well as the many lessons learned from this unfortunate situation will certainly serve management and board members of companies that may be facing such issues related to systems and data.

This Breakfast seminar will be immediately followed by a workshop activity to deepen the subject with our two same guests. You must register separately for this activity. Still at the Ritz Carlton from 9 am to 12 am.
