Engage Employees, Avoid Common Digital Transformation Change Management (DTCM) Traps, and Utilize Best Practices

Day 1, Roundtable 1

Host: James Wilson, Advisory, Finance & Accounting at Ashling Partners

Only one-third of change initiatives succeed. That’s a staggering statistic and even more intimidating in the midst of accelerated digital transformation. Executive level support is a must for hyperautomation programs, but implementation planning is shifting to the employee providing empowerment in execution. During this roundtable, we’ll discuss recent digital transformation successes, failures, the dollar impact, and share best practices. You will take away a new way to engage with employees with the utilization of DTCM.


Jeff Hatfield

Scaling Healthcare Intelligent Automation Beyond the Back Office

Day 1, Roundtable 2

Host: Jeff Hatfield, VP – Intelligent Healthcare Automation at Ashling Partners

The clinical and patient care portions of healthcare have been vastly underserved by automation.  This roundtable focuses on new and innovative opportunities to leverage the full UiPath platform in critical areas such as care management, patient quality, OR operations, clinician support and others. 

Strategies for ensuring production automations are driving business outcomes and using analytics to prove it

Day 2, Roundtable 1

Host: Charlie Jacoby, Managing Director at Ashling Partners

 With the ever increasing number of production automations/digital workers it is more important than ever to ensure that they are driving the business outcomes that were expected when the business case was created and the opportunity scoped and prioritized. This roundtable will encourage discussion on key techniques being used to accomplish that. An additional goal of this session will be to discuss how analytics can help clearly show those outcomes as well as the health and capacity of the digital team.

Defining and Delivering Value Through Hyperautomation

Day 2, Roundtable 2

Host: Brian Barrett, Managing Director at Ashling Partners

The overall success and longevity of an automation program is predicated upon its ability to identify, track, and communicate the potential and realized value of the processes that are automated.  As part of this roundtable, we will discuss examples of how each of us have been successful in measuring value, scaling our automation programs, or aligning the COE strategy and vision with corporate objectives. Coming out of the roundtable, participants should leave with real-life examples of how organizations are finding success scaling their programs as well communicating the value derived from their programs.
