Fortune, together with McKinsey & Company, will convene a new conference that is rooted in the idea that leaders in every industry are confronting the need to transform their organizations for the digital age. New technologies, new competitors, and new consumer expectations make this an urgent requirement. We aim to put the spotlight on companies that are doing this well, and to assist others at various stages of their transformational journeys.
