Executive Insights Q&A: Agility at Scale at Catholic Education Western Australia

In 2016 CEWA commenced its digital transformation to create a single digital ecosystem connecting all of its schools and offices, eventually resulting in incorporation in 2020 of all entities under one umbrella – CEWA Limited. Working together as one, CEWA schools now have opportunities which could previously only be dreamed about, from unlocking significant economies of scale to complete digital equity across all regions. In this presentation Mike will reflect on strategic decisions and technology choices which have enabled maximum speed and agility whilst minimising risk associated with digital transformations of this magnitude.
