Breaking out of legacy to
create and protect value

How to modernise in uncertain times?

There is nothing like a crisis to make us rethink the way we operate. As enterprises attempt to adjust and respond, many have come to the realisation that systems and processes designed for stabler times are now holding them back.

Drawing on years of experience delivering large-scale legacy modernisation and transformation projects, this hub aims to share best practices for organisations looking to deliver change. We explore an incremental approach to legacy modernisation, helping organisations break change management into small manageable parts and strategically build on existing assets to continue to generate value.

In this insightful session, Thoughtworks transformation and delivery directors, Mike Beaven and Faye Roth challenge organisations to look at legacy in a different way - as an asset that can be tactically built on to generate tangible value.

Topics covered include: Extracting value from existing assets, incremental change management, turning technology into an enabler of new ways of working, getting buy-in from commercial stakeholders and lessons learned from real-life lockdown transformation projects.
