Digital Transformation isn't about system change or moving from On Premise to Cloud. It is also critical that there is no empty vision. Too many articles are about why, they seem to sit on a mount preaching you need this and you need that without actually telling us how.
Come Monday morning when you start a Digital Transformation project what would you do?
And that my friend is the question we asked of many, many company when at out last roles and the answer would usually be. "But we are XYZ, you have nothing to worry about". Did you see what they did there? They didn't answer the question, as they didn't actually know.
But if a company throws an infinite number of graduates at the problem, then I guess it's a solution of sorts.
Lucky we have actually completed digital transformations, so we know exactly what we will do the first Monday.
The following article is a great why, give us a call if you need a how!
Listen, we cannot have any kind of transformation without change. It isn’t possible. Which is why change is one of the six pillars of digital transformation and not just an overarching theme. As mentioned above, people must get behind change in order to realize it. You cannot really force it, and if you do the results are short term at best. You should go into your transformation, understanding firsthand that change is inevitable—and it might be tough. Communicate your expectations to your employees. Develop a strategy to encourage change and deal with push back at the same time. Provide the necessary tools and environment for employees to embrace and succeed in this change. If you do this effectively, it will lead you to the next of the six pillars of digital transformation.
