How To Enable a Decentralized, Large Scaled Transformation – A Roche Story

Roche Informatics embarked on a large scaled transformation to enable ~15’000 Business and IT professionals to deliver better value, faster, efficient, together. This talk will be an honest account on the experiences gained during that journey and should act as an inspiration for other organizations on how to continuously transform.

Key Learnings:

    • A deep-dive on the approach and agile transformation governance that Roche Informatic applied to enable this large scale transformation
    • A deep-dive on the application of the hub & spokes model with +10 local LACEs
    • A deep-dive on the transformation bootcamp that acted as a kick-start for the decentralized, large scale transformation
    • Success factors and challenges experienced on the journey
