If agility is a word your organization is focusing on more and more these days, it’s probably in relation to the digital transformation that has taken hold in practically every industry. It is not an easy goal to attain, as many businesses are struggling to execute effective transformations that result in being more agile.
Common Themes in Success Stories
For those who are getting it right, there are some common themes they’re experiencing:
– They have empowered their employees with being part of the process.
– The employees have the tools they require to implement a successful digital transformation.
– There is a strong focus on how the process will impact customers.
– They’ve created a framework that leaves no stone unturned, which means there is clear visibility into the process that leads to better decision making.
The thought of “digital transformation” would almost immediately elicit images of new, high-end technology. However, the true power of a digital transformation is in the people behind it. And while there does need to be a focus on technical solutions, the behaviors of those in the workplace need to be considered as well.
When people are empowered, they can make an implementation go smoothly. They need some flexibility, which leads them to make the right decisions and fully embrace the process rather than become frustrated and resentful.
It wasn’t long ago that a digital transformation process involved decision-making that focused on upper management rather than involving non-management personnel. By choosing not to empower these people, or through plain ignorance, company-wide buy-in was limited.
Fortunately, the method of delegating responsibilities to others, such as technology specialists, opened the door to a collaborative effort that provided almost immediate results. The experience of those who have nailed their digital transformation stands as a reminder that putting your people first and empowering the right employees throughout the process will provide the results you want.
