Technology Trends Impacting ICT Strategies

Don’t forget humans in your transformation

What to include in your IT Transformation!

Most arguments for change in the corporate world are intellectual. There’s often talk of the increasing pace of change, the threat of disruption, the need to be “one enterprise” and the changing expectations of customers. All of these are rational, cerebral arguments, often communicated in dry bullet points and slides.

The inclusion of your human resources in your planning is an important aspect of your Digital Transformation Strategy.

Everyone is talking about the transformation that enterprises must undergo. However, the gap between ambition and execution is widening as transformations stall or flail.
