How to Make Digital Transformations Successful

Technology, including artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing, has become central to how every business competes. Yet many initiatives fail. Why? Greg Satell, who leads Innovation Excellence, reports that McKinsey found that less than a third of organizational transformations succeed. A major reason is that  leaders often forget that digital transformation includes human transformation and that’s where you need to start. Organizations get blinded by the “gee-whiz” aspects of technology, don’t focus on clear business objectives, scale too fast and then declare victory too quickly.

He gives 4 pieces of advice to avoid failure:

  • Focus on people first, technology second
  • Establish clear business outcomes
  • Identify a keystone change
  • Treat transformation as a Journey, not a Destination.
