06 Apr 2020

Lindsay Wall, General Manager for the UK, Ireland and Middle East at Brilliant Basics, discusses digital innovation and the challenges that big corporations are facing today. The discussion covers Infosys Digital Radar 2020 report and why telecoms are under threat.

Hosted by Anand Verma, European Head of Digital Services for Infosys and Founder & CEO of Brilliant Basics, Infosys’ Design Studios.

“A common challenge that we find with a lot of our clients as well, is that they're doing many of the right things. They've set up innovation labs, they've set up centers of excellence, they're training all their employees on design thinking. But if you measure it around, what are the five to ten unicorns that are going to transform that business and the whole operating model and the organization at large. Delivering that is the key challenge.” - Lindsay Wall
