Digital Transformation is, at its core, self-disruption. It is the creation of more efficient and creative processes that are underpinned by intuitive and powerful toolsets leveraging human skills, with the intent of increasing customer experience, growth and profit. Many business leaders instinctively understand that digital transformation is critical to long term growth and profitability as changes in market opportunity, technology and the business environment occur, but self-disruption can be an inherently risky bet, with the potential to cannibalise revenues, disappoint customers and increase costs.
From start-ups to corporations, digital transformation is the growth engine of the existing business.
Regardless of industry or size, organisations face common challenges in driving digital transformation, including:
How do we create our vision for the future and identify the priorities to get there? Many companies face an even bigger challenge than overcoming short-term performance pressures: How to reconcile multiple strategic options to envision a different future amid shifting customer needs, evolving technologies, and increasing competition.
How do we inspire and empower people? The relentless pace of always-on transformation can demoralise even the most engaged employees. Sustaining it while offering employees meaningful opportunity and fulfilment—intrinsic rewards that millennials and “digital natives” seek—adds substantial complexity to the challenge.”
How do we execute amid constant change? Changing the business once meant executing from a playbook of primarily short-term, discrete actions. But transforming to thrive in the future often requires disrupting existing business models and value chains to solve customer needs—and doing so at digital speed. Today, when changing the business means simultaneously executing and innovating with agility, a conventional approach to execution is no longer enough.
