Idea Management for Digital Transformation and Strategy Leaders
Learn how you and your team can foster a culture of innovation through gathering, evaluating and implementing new ideas.
It’s your job to oversee the organisation’s digital transformation, from creating and driving strategy to ensuring that the right digital tools and services are deployed. You must try and avoid digital siloes emerging across the business and to be able to unify them if they do.
As digital transformation is as much a cultural shift as it is technological, it’s important for everyone to buy into your digital vision, with employees kept informed and engaged with your plans.
Whatever the industry, digital transformation can be a significant challenge. You need:
To convince the board about the merits of going digital and to release the budget that successful digital transformation requires.
Quick wins to demonstrate that digital will work for the business, whether by increasing efficiencies, improving services or reducing costs.
Employees who want to come on your change journey and do not feel threatened by digital transformation.
To find and address any other potential barriers to progress.
