September 14, 2021

Digital-first playbook: Part 2 — This second part of our "Digital-first playbook webinar series" dives deep into the "playbook" chapter of a new and modern digital playbook.

The builder ethos, which holds that digital builders ideate and develop great customer experiences, is a mindset activated by digital factories. These digital factories, which are incubators of digital innovation, are tasked not with organizing digital strategy, but rather digitizing business strategy.

Learn about the next step in building your digital-first playbook. With the right people and technology at play, your organization can focus on the playbook.

Join Loblaw for the second installment of the digital-first playbook webinar series to learn about how they digitized their business strategy with a playbook anchored by Contentful. They’ve scaled content across teams and have replaced departmental boundaries with linear workflow. Now, Loblaw teams work in an environment where information is implicitly and explicitly shared, empowering both technical and non-technical builders to collaborate seamlessly.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how Loblaw utilized APIs, design systems, content repositories and cloud-based solutions to build and manage their digital platform

  • Hear about the challenges Loblaw faced during their digital transformation and how Contentful’s global marketing, ecommerce and knowledge bases use cases lead to a solution

  • Get an overview of Loblaw’s best practices for scaling digital operations
