Change enablement is key to successful digital transformation. The Crazy Mind interviewed Dr. Priya E. Abraham, author of 'Cyberconnecting. The Three Lenses of Diversity' how leaders can establish effective work-based relationships across technological, cultural and social boundaries to drive digital transformation.
What are the key challenges for business leaders?
Leaders can lay a good foundation for Digital Transformation by focusing on the human element. Digitisation is more than just the implementation of technology or a change of tools. It comprises the transformation of daily practices, workplace structures, reporting relationships, performance information systems, information sharing, and customer interaction. Even competitor relationships are thereby transformed.
Becoming a true digital organisation is not just about becoming tech-savvy. It means embracing a new culture and mindset, where hierarchy fades and innovation happens through networks. Business leaders need to develop this mindset first in order to enable the organisation to adopt the practices. In large organisations, the biggest challenge for leaders presents the departmental disconnect they are facing on a daily basis. They need to build cross-boundary relationships themselves and enable their people to do the same.
