Panel Discussion: Business Transformation

This panel will discuss novel ways of transforming the downstream business. This includes the application of new business strategies and business models, doing things in a new way, establishing new joint-ventures or business agreements, and adopting new approaches to achieve business goals. Shifting business focus, such as shifting from a volume driven business to a margin driven business, as well as dealing with an increasingly competitive environment are key elements of the discussion. The integration and utilization of existing assets in the transformative journey. What kind of approach should different levels within a downstream organization adopt to achieve this transformation? Has the current pandemic triggered a need for accelerated business transformation, or a time to consolidate? Success stories and case studies will be shared, especially of a case where a failing business has been transformed into a successful one using novel business strategies and approach.
