      Digital technology and data analytics are disrupting the delivery of capital projects as well as the operation and maintenance of assets on an unprecedented scale. A new norm is emerging of continuous change in the thinking, capabilities, and skills required to deliver better project outcomes and increased asset value. Companies that will lead this new future must redefine their organizations now to take advantage of these new opportunities. This session will draw on the findings of McKinsey’s recent work to understand the challenges facing the modern infrastructure sector as it navigates this new digital world and attempts to turn around a decades-long record of underperforming productivity. It will provide delegates with the latest strategic thinking delivered by a globally acknowledged expert in the field.
