Organizations are facing rapidly changing priorities and challenges, including the global pandemic, economic disruption, commercial space operations, civil unrest, and a bewildering tsunami of new technologies and tools. Increasing expectations from consumers to deliver services at speed and a high-quality user experience demand digital transformation that is accelerated by a culture of innovation and collaboration. The "Together is better" mindset is required across all technology and business domains to create a seamless and connected innovation ecosystem that drives agility, adaptability, trust, and transparency. It is critical for all organizations to understand and achieve high-quality collaboration and ultimately a culture of innovation.
