About this talk

This week on The New P&L – Principles & Leadership Podcast Series we speak to the brilliant Greg Merrill, Senior Director, Digital Transformation at Nike. Greg has built his expertise at the epicentre of strategy, technology, innovation, and sport. He is passionate about the power of diverse and empowered teams leveraging modern technology and data in innovative ways to fuel exponential growth and competitive advantage. In his role leading Nike’s Digital Transformation, Greg is responsible for driving the most critical cross-functional strategic initiatives that power growth and transformation across the enterprise. With initiatives spanning from Product Creation to Planning & Supply Chain to the front-end Consumer & Marketplace Experiences he has a wide purview and influence across the enterprise. We discuss with Greg: · His definition of digital transformation · Whether the phrase Digital Transformation is over-hyped and a bit like ‘Emperor’s new clothes’ · The type of corporate culture needed for digital transformation · How you cultivate the right mindset in a business that is resistant to the scale of change needed to digitally transform · Whether some CEOs and senior leaders naively believe strong technological innovation solves all problems, when in fact technology has no agency in itself · If digital transformation projects start from a place of fear or opportunity and how that affects Digital Transformation strategy and the implementation · How you measure the value creation of digital transformation over time · The signs that a digital transformation programme is failing · How a digital transformation team retains the freedom and independence needed to deliver the project while also ensuring they are still connected enough to retain widespread buy-in for it To subscribe to all of The New P&L series podcasts and join The New P&L movement, go to: Insta: @principlesandleadership

We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
