Lego’s digital transformation began in 2003 after a near-death experience, and it has since adapted to the rise of video gaming and the digital age by introducing a global enterprise-software system, launching digital games and franchises, and focusing on direct-to-consumer sales. The company’s five-year transformation drive, initiated in 2019, has led to significant sales growth, online portal visits, and collaborations with video-gaming firms.

The McKinsey study highlights three lessons from Lego for the forthcoming AI transformation of many businesses:

Third, retrain existing tech workers and change the organisational culture.

These three lessons from Lego’s digital transformation could be useful for the forthcoming AI transformation of many businesses.
