HOW THE NEW REALITY AFFECTS:
In 6 slides
There is a pressing need for sector
leaders (CEOs, chairs, senior
executives and trustees) to engage
more with the opportunities digital
transformation oﬀers - and the risks it
poses if ignored.
Opportunities range from signiﬁcant
eﬃciencies in internal operations, to the
development of new services that can
deliver both greater reach and impact.
The biggest risk: organisations who
ignore this disruption will become
irrelevant within the next 5 years.
Delegating responsibility for digital
technology to a single team has
created a group of highly skilled
individuals, but who lack the mandate
to create real change.
Bottom-up leadership will not get us
As a result, some digital leaders and
champions have become too focused on
Instead we need them to oﬀer more
strategic guidance on how organisations
can use technology to dramatically
improve their impact.
Lack of trustee engagement and
buy-in around the opportunities
oﬀered by digital technology is
becoming a very serious issue.
Education programmes are a must,
and new blood may be required.
If there was one
thing we could
change - it would
be for CEOs to be
braver and more
