CTO, Kentucky Fried Chicken
KFC’s digital acceleration, putting the Clicks into the Chicken & Chips’ business
(Co-presented with Phillipe Geunet)
You would be forgiven if KFC, the nation’s favourite chicken restaurant, did not immediately register for you as a technology brand. After all, technology was never a part of the Colonel’s original business recipe. But times have changed. As the industry saw a progressive take-up of home-delivery food, COVID accelerated the transition of customer habits by a decade, and it was essential to act. Technology has landed firmly in the business in very short order, from ordering food using digital channels to optimising kitchens. In such a fast-changing landscape, aligning meaningful change on the inside was also necessary. Please join us to hear from Jatin Chandwani (KFC’s CTO) and Philippe Guenet (Change Coach) on how KFC progresses with its incremental transformation using Flow thinking, developing teamwork collaboration, consolidating excellence, and distributing the strategy for better initiative & autonomy.
