“Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity, and are able to turn both to their advantage”.
“In the Industrial Age, the CEO sat on top of the hierarchy and didn’t have to listen to any body… In the Information Age, you have to listen to ideas of people regardless of where they are in the Organsiation.” – John Sculley
Questioning Key Managerial Assumptions
To gain the most business benefits from today’s digital technology, it pays to question key managerial assumptions. “George Westerman and Didier Bonnet”.
There is no shortage of stories about companies that create amazing innovations with digital technology. By using mobile devices, social media, analytics and the cloud, savvy companies are transforming the way they do business. Most of the stories feature companies that are small and young or that operate in industries such as music or high tech, where digital technology has already radically shifted the business landscape. For larger companies in more traditional industries, it’s easy to think that digital transformation can wait and that a follower strategy is a safer route than trying to be a pioneer. That kind of thinking, while tempting, is wrong.
Our Advice and How We Can Assist today’s Enterprises that need to embark on the Digital Transformation Age.
Companies that lead in using digital technology — we call them “digital masters” — differ not only in their capability but also in the clarity of their vision. They see digital not as a technology challenge but as a transformation opportunity. Rather than incrementally adjusting current practices, they search for ways to use today’s fast-moving technologies to transform the way they do business.For managers in traditional industries, this can be a tall order. Many assumptions about what is possible and impossible, based on experience with last century’s technologies, are no longer valid in the digital world. How do you move beyond your current mind-set to find opportunities that digital technology can enable?
