Chelsea Barnes of The Enterprisers’ Project emphasizes that “successful digital transformation requires adoption across your organization.
She says that three-quarters of digital transformation initiatives are stuck in “pilot purgatory.” She agrees with our view that “while technical boxes may be checked, organizational adoption – if and how employees welcome the change – is often ignored. Achieving genuine buy-in from people is a much more complex challenge than installing hardware or software. Go figure.”
She recommends you ask these questions:
- How are you making it easier for your employees to visualize a new “day-to-day” and make them comfortable with those changes without fear of job insecurity?
- In what ways are you reinforcing and reskilling your existing talent so that data competency is pervasive across your organization?
- Where can you revise your organizational structure to encourage collaboration rather than competing priorities that slow down the project?
- What processes can you institute (or improve) that will enable a faster pace of change so that your company can learn continuously and organically?
