Acting on the Digital Imperative

Ralf Dreischmeier, the global leader of BCG’s Technology Advantage practice, shares his views on digital strategy. CEOs should know that it is not optional, it is not a one-off, and it is a clear way of prioritizing the many opportunities that could play a role in transforming a company, he explains.

Ralf Dreischmeier is the global leader of the Technology Advantage practice and works with leading organizations globally to help them gain competitive advantage through the use of technology and data.

Since joining BCG in 1998, Ralf has focused mainly on creating value from large-scale business and technology transformations and helping clients to shape and accelerate their digital transformation.

In his work with clients, Ralf has played a key role in developing technology and digital strategies for financial services, telecommunications, media, and consumer goods clients.

Ralf has written several BCG and external publications and is the leading coauthor of BCG Technology Advantage, the biannual collection of thought leadership on technology issues.

He contributed to an online course on Digital Transformation. The course, developed by BCG in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and Coursera, enables students to examine the pace of digital change and the imperative it creates for businesses.

Prior to joining BCG, Ralf worked for Andersen Consulting (Accenture) and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
