What is the Digital Office?

To propel this transformation and achieve Strategy 2.0, we’ve assembled the Digital Office — a team of partners, technologists, and subject matter experts that champion digital across the firm. Their mission is to evolve our culture and create a smarter, faster BDO. CULTR/SHFT is just the beginning.
