GlobalScot Robin Speculand – World-class digital transformation (learn how DBS Bank became the best)

Less than one in five organisations completes digital transformation successfully. Learn how DBS Bank became one of the world’s best.



Digital transformation impacts every part of your business, yet fewer than one in five organisations completes it successfully.

This informative, engaging and exclusive masterclass shares how DBS Bank transformed from a traditional bank to the world’s best by leveraging digitalisation.

DBS has been awarded the World’s Best Bank for the past three years and ranked among the top 10 digital transformations of the past decade by Harvard Business Review.

Under the stewardship of CEO Piyush Gupta, the bank transformed digitally by focusing on three strategic principles:

Become Digital to the Core

Embed Ourselves in the Customer Journey

Culture by Design

Find out what the bank did differently to implement its strategy, its hard-won insights, proven practices and relevant anecdotes you can apply on your digitisation journey.

Specifically, you will discover how DBS Bank:

Aligned its digital purpose in a way that inspired everyone

Adopted the term “GANDALF” to transform its technology architecture

Engaged employees from the start and encouraged innovation through hackathons

Put customer journeys at the core of everything the bank does

Transformed to a totally data-driven organisation

Became the first bank in the world to launch an ecosystem platform

Adopted agile, DevOps, design thinking, AI, ML and other strategic tools

Set up ways to measure its digital strategy, showing on its P&L that digital customers are twice as valuable as traditional customers

Woven throughout this masterclass are intriguing lessons, best practices and stories stemming from Robin Speculand’s three years of research and interviews for his new book – World’s Best Bank: A Strategic Guide to Digital Transformation.
