The modern digital workplace
Digital Transformation has become a buzz word over the past few years, creating excitement, confusion and angst for leaders and organisations everywhere.
The questions flood in with conflicting answers depending on where you look, who you ask or who is trying to sell you something:
- What is it?
- Why is it so important?
- Where do we start?
- What are we aiming for?
- How much will it cost?
- We just upgraded our systems - didn't we?
We have seen organisations engage numerous consultants from virtually every discipline to conduct reviews and produce reports, simply to produce increased change fatigue and cynicism for staff with little real impact (not to mention the cost). In most cases, this is not purely a reflection on the consultants or systems implemented. Too many organisations want a quick fix that will cost them virtually nothing. Unfortunately, they end up with exactly that – virtually nothing. Transformation does not need to be as expensive as you may fear, but it does require the significant investment of focus, time and resources, along with your budget.
Becoming a modern digital workplace is not simply an activity that is "performed" on the organisation; it is a mindset shift that will impact every level of the organisation in various ways. The journey and the destination is unique for everyone and requires clarity, leadership and engagement to leverage appropriate processes and technologies. We recognise that navigating this pathway is not obvious for many and requires a unique set of skills and expertise.
