“The goal wasn’t really a digital transformation. The goal was a business model transformation because, if we didn’t get to that business model transformation, the fact that we were a digital company would be irrelevant.”
What does it take to formulate an ambitious vision and then go hands-on to bring it to fruition?
Tony Uphoff is a growth advisor, tech mentor, and turn around expert. He was the President and CEO at Thomas (formerly ThomasNet), and personally drove the effort to transform the 100 year old business into a modern media enterprise, what he calls a “125 year old startup.”
This week’s episode is from the first session of Mastermind LIVE 2022. Tony joined Kelly Barner to kick off the two day event by sharing his experiences with driving organizations towards a big goal or vision – despite enterprise inertia in a challenging market.
