With 92% of companies expecting that their business models would need to change to remain viable in the face of increasing digitization—even before COVID-19—it’s no wonder that digital transformation efforts are at the heart of business recovery for many leading companies.
“ We’ve seen two years’ worth of digital transformations in two months. From remote teamwork and learning, to sales and customer service, to critical cloud infrastructure and security—we are working alongside customers every day to help them adapt and stay open for business in a world of remote everything. ”
— Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO
While 90% of corporate leaders view digital as a top priority, 83% struggle to make meaningful progress. And of the $1.3 trillion spent on digital transformation in 2019, $900 billion was wasted when initiatives did not meet their goals.
Why the disheartening data? Because the digital and process changes to automate operations, facilitate customer interactions, leverage data, or enable a remote workforce (among other priorities) mean more than just plugging in new technologies. These large-scale, multifaceted business transformations require strategy and planning across teams, widespread culture changes, executive buy-in, enhanced communication with purposeful feedback loops, and implementation of new ways to work.
