Gartner estimates that over 70% of transformation initiatives fail and Forbes reports that 84% of Digital Transformation efforts fail. Many organizations erroneously think of a Digital Transformation as integrating Digital Technologies. This is merely an IT transformation and is directed at optimizing IT services for business or organizational needs and outcomes. Culture is why most digital transformation efforts fail. A successful digital transformation is not, in fact, a technology-driven endeavor. It is first and foremost a cultural and organizational transformation. Learn how your organization can be prepared for this profound transformation by understanding the four pillars of Digital Transformation “Readiness:”
- Operational Sustainability – Does your organization have a stable base to operate from?
- Organizational Agility – How quickly can your organization react to change?
- Strategic Agility – How well does your organization anticipate change?
- Disruptive Culture – How receptive is your organization and people to implementing change?
True Digital Transformation is more than just implementing Digital Practices and Digital Technologies. Digital Transformation rightly targets optimizing business or organizational effectiveness via digital investments and IT services. Transformation occurs when business strategies or major sections of an organization are altered. This can be quite disruptive and stressful for an organization. In short, Transformation efforts fail because organizations are not “Ready” to transform by exhibiting Operational Sustainability, Organizational Agility, Strategic Agility, and finally a Disruptive Culture.
