Digital Transformation ( DT) – the use of technology to radically improve and differentiate performance or reach of enterprises is becoming a hot topic for companies across the globe. Executives in all industries are using digital advances such as Analytic, Mobility, Social media and smart embedded devices and improving their use of traditional technologies such as ERP – to change customer relationships, internal processes, and value propositions. We continue to see how fast digital technology disrupted media industries in the past decade and it now spreading to all businesses irrespective of the domain and sectors.

How can top / senior management successfully lead digital transformation? While we all know and urge the team to get started on the digital transformation journey , few tell how to do it. This book gives a clear “ How” part .

I have also given in the summary few good case studies where digitization has impacted the business outcomes like Burberry , Asian Paints, Nike, Codelco, Starbucks , UPS etc.

The how part –Leading digital transformation

• Sharing a digital transformation vision across the enterprise ( not in piece mail – all businesses across the group need to envision the journey and be in sync)
• Gaining critical mass – inclusiveness
• Frame the digital challenges
• Focus investment on resources
• Sustaining the transformation

An excellent one to read.

  4. 4. Over the past years digital has been transforming businesses – from large to small, and across industries, from manufacturing to banking to pharmaceuticals. For executives the transition to a digital business places them at a crossroads – on the one hand it provides potentially huge opportunities, on the other hand it brings along significant strategic and operational challenges. Recent research from Capgemini Consulting and MIT (‘The Digital Advantage’) reveals that digital leaders – so-called ‘Digital Masters’ – realize up to 9% more revenue and up to 26% profit than competitors. Yet despite the clear benefits, businesses are at the same time struggling with capturing the potential of digital, through either insufficient priority, focus or budget and/or poor implementation capabilities. As a result, the researchers estimate that currently ‘only’ 15% of companies can be coined digital leaders, while 65% of companies still find themselves in the early phase of adoption. Prelude
  5. 5.  The book commences with outlining the potential of digital, concluding that in the next decade, companies, industries and entire economies will be transformed by a barrage of technology innovations that will “make everything that’s happened so far look like a prelude”, write the authors Didier Bonnet (SVP of Capgemini Consulting), Andrew McAfee (MIT) and George Westerman (MIT). “When it comes to the impact of digital technologies on the business world, we aren't seen nothing yet,” says McAfee.  Based on the game changing role digital is forecasted to have, the authors subsequently look at the key characteristics required for successfully embracing digital.  To do so, they researched the practices and operations of more than 100 companies, including amongst others digital leaders as Burberry, Lloyds Banking Group and Nike. Interestingly, they conclude that digital leadership is possible in any industry: “We found that it doesn’t matter what industry you are in,” explains Bonnet.  In addition, it turns out that driving digital transformation successfully is not an arcane or mysterious art; it is to the contrary an achievable goal for “any enterprise with the leadership and willingness to do so.” . Prelude
  6. 6.  Lastly, for executives willing to transform their business to a digital leader, the authors offer a practical framework which allows organizations to improve their performance in three key areas:  Customer experience,  Operational processes and  Business models.  The framework is based on a step-by step guide (12 steps), from strategy setting and planning to deployment and embedding the change within the organization.  Each section also provides is also accompanied by a self- diagnostic exercise, as well as useful examples and techniques to employ. “In this book, the authors provide not only the inspiration, but the practical guidance required for CEOs to successfully navigate the digital transformation,” Prelude
  7. 7. 1 What is Digital Mastery
  8. 8.  Digital Masters are the organizations that use digital technologies to work differently.  They employ strong digital and leadership capabilities to get closer to their customers, empower their employees, and improve their business processes.  When organizations attain digital mastery, they show a clear performance advantage.  Digital Masters are significantly more profitable than their competitors and have greater achievement, more money for investment, and more engaged employees.  The benefits to digital mastery are great, but many organizations struggle to adopt & use digital technology. Context
  9. 9. What Do These Great Companies Have In Common?
  10. 10. DigitalCapability Leadership Capability The DNA Of Digital Masters The What: Using digital technology to transform the customer experience, operational processes and business models The How: Successful transformations depend as much on how firms manage digital transformation than solely on implementing new technologies Digital Masters combine digital capabilities and leadership capabilities to achieve performance that is greater than either dimension can deliver on its own.
  11. 11.  In today’s business world, executives must use digital technology to improve their product designs, increase their manufacturing speed, and make their organizations more efficient. Digital Masters, firms that are making huge technological strides, are investing in both the what of technology (referred to as digital capabilities) and the how of change leadership (or leadership capabilities) to gain advantages over their competitors.  These two dimensions are made up of four levels of digital mastery:  Beginners  Fashionistas  Conservatives  Digital Masters Digital Mastery
  12. 12. Four Levels Of Digital Mastery DigitalCapability Leadership Capability FASHIONISTAS DIGITAL MASTERS CONSERVATIVESBEGINNERS
  13. 13. * Average performance difference for firms in each quadrant versus the average performance of all large firms in the same industry for the 184 publicly-traded companies in our sample The Time To Act Is Now Basket of indicators: • EBIT Margin • Net Profit Margin DigitalCapability Leadership Capability REVENUE GENERATION EFFICIENCY +6% +9% -10%-4% DigitalCapability Leadership Capability PROFITABILITY % +26% +9%-24% -11% Digital Masters Have Significantly Better Financial Performance Basket of indicators: • Revenue / Employee • Fixed Asset Turnover
  14. 14. Four Levels Of Digital Mastery  Beginners: Those at the beginning of their digital journeys. Beginners have very basic digital experience and they often lag behind their competitors in both their technological and financial performances.  Fashionistas: Firms that invest in the newest technological and digital trends, but lack strong leadership and control. Because they are so impulsive, Fashionistas often waste much of what they spend or have to reverse their actions to better integrate new technologies.  Conservatives: Extremely prudent firms that often have strong digital capabilities, but are too cautious to use them to their full extent. Conservatives are the exact opposite of fashionistas.  Digital Masters: The most technologically savvy firms. They have the skills, knowledge, and resources to invest in a strong digital future.
  15. 15. Digital Mastery by Industry
  16. 16. 2 Building Digital Capabilities
  17. 17. Creating Compelling Customer Experience Executives wanting to transform their organizations must first focus on digital capability, and how organizations engage with their customers is the most visible aspect of that capability. Digital Masters transform their customer experiences through the sum of four interventions:  Designing the customer experience from the outside in.  Digitally engaged customers expect products, services, and information to be timely and tailored to their specific needs. Digital Masters provide customers with the experiences that they truly want by understanding both customer behavior and the organizational requirements needed to deliver exceptional experiences
  18. 18. Creating Compelling Customer Experience  Creating reach & Customer Engagement.  Digital Masters realize that digital transformation cannot happen without digital investment, so they make smart investments to creatively enhance the customer experience.  Putting Customer Data at the heart of the experience.  Digital Masters rely on data-driven insights. They integrate data and advanced analytics to make better decisions, improve the quality of customer experiences, and create greater competitive advantages.  Meshing physical & digital experiences in new ways.  Digital Masters understand that innovation comes from creatively bringing together multiple digital and physical channels to create new and improved customer experiences and encourage continual innovation.
  19. 19. With customer engagement at the center of the digital transformation, performance will be enhanced and the company culture revamped. Anything that interferes with a compelling customer experience must be corrected immediately
  20. 20. Angela Ahrendts
  21. 21. Key Challenges  In 2006 while similar companies in the sector were growing at an average rate of 12-13%, Burberry was not passing the 1-2% mark; the board decided that the brand had to become more competitive  Burberry saw an opportunity in digital transformation, at a time when the competitors were basing their strategy on their tradition (Italian and French firms mainly) to reach their habitual customers.  To re-launch its brand on the market, Burberry decided to try to reach a new target of customers; the millennial generation. The best way to reach Generation Y customers was to go digital.  On the basis of this aim, Burberry established the five year Innovation Strategy.. Burberry
  22. 22.  Burberry developed a 5 year strategy to implement digital solutions  Digital marketing driven company:  Use of non formal advertisement channels such as social media and online platforms. The firm aimed to interact and engage with its customers by showing them how they operate  Creation of a system to manage and coordinate the different online platforms that the company uses.  Creation of e Stores and mobile apps:  Creation of online stores through which customers can purchase goods to be picked up in store  Live projection of runway shows and other events in stores. In this occasion customers are allowed to have privileged pre-sales through tablets in stores  Implementation of a Mobile App which allows customers to view products and purchase them even if not yet available in stores Burberry- Digital Solution
  23. 23.  As a result of the 5 year innovation strategy, Burberry transformed itself from an underscoring company in 2005 to one in the top 5 of its sector  Burberry finished 2012 as the most followed luxury brand on Facebook, with nearly 15 million fans. Burberry was also the leading luxury lifestyle brand on Instagram.  Total revenues grew by 23% in 2012  Data collected reveals that 60% of customers buy luxury goods online and collect items in stores  Burberry made investments in human resourcing to set up specific departments dedicated to the Innovation Strategy implementation  Further developments are blurring the lines between digital and physical stores Burberry- Outcome
  24. 24. Adam Brotman-CDO
  25. 25. Starbucks-Life Cycle  Two decades of growth  Sales started declining At Starbucks, coffee is big business. Since opening its first location in Seattle, Washington in 1971, the company has grown into one of the world’s largest specialty foods retailers and one of the most globally-recognized brands.
  26. 26. Starbucks- Challenges  Starbucks has built a billion-dollar enterprise on more than just coffee; it has succeeded in creating a unique Starbucks experience in its stores and online.  Following a rapid expansion, Starbucks faced declining same-store sales in 2008 and its share price had been nearly cut in half over the prior two years.  The picture wasn’t much better on the technology front. Unintuitive point-of-sale systems still ran on antiquated technology, and store managers did not have access to email.  To turn the tide, senior leaders took a number of strategic actions, key among them using digital technologies to engage customers in new ways.
  27. 27. Starbucks- Value Chain Value Chain New Value Chain
  28. 28. Starbucks-Digitization  Starbucks’ recipe for success in Digital Transformation has been equal parts technology-savvy and committed leadership. Today, Starbucks continues to leverage these strengths to create value for customers and shareholders alike through digital  Today, 94% of all Facebook users are either a Starbucks fan or are friends with one.  Starbucks boasts 7 million active users of its mobile payment system, and nearly 100 thousand downloads of its mobile apps every week.  In 2012, the company booked $3 billion in payments via its loyalty card, and is on track to double user enrollment to 9 million in 2013.
  29. 29. “Everything we are doing in digital is about enhancing and strengthening those connections [with our customers] in only the way that digital can and only the way that Starbucks can.’” - Adam Brotman, Chief Digital Officer Starbucks-Digitization
  30. 30. Codelco: Revolutionizing Mining Through Digital Technologies
  31. 31. Codelco  Codelco, the largest copper producer in the world, has its roots back in the 1800s.  Owned by the Chilean State, it operates internationally and employs over 18,000 people.  At the beginning of the millennium – facing increasing challenges around workers’ security, environment and productivity – Codelco took a hard strategic look at what the future of mining could be.  An important goal was to automate mining operations, shifting from a physical-intensive model to a knowledge and technology-intensive one. To turn vision into reality
  32. 32. Codelco  Codelco Digital was created in 2003.  It has both operational and strategic objectives:  To drive initiatives in mining-automation and also to support the CEO in developing, evolving and communicating a digital vision.  Today, four mines in Chile are operated automatically:  Trucks drive themselves,  Operations are controlled remotely,  Information is shared in real-time, and so on.  This was more than just a technology implementation challenge.  It involved a new culture, employee engagement, and new skills.  As CIO Marco Antonio Orellana Silva explains: “Our company is very conservative, so changing the culture is a key challenge. We created internal innovation awards to promote new ideas and encourage our workers to innovate.
  33. 33. Codelco Today, the firm is shifting from the traditional “Codelco 1.0” model to “Codelco 2.0”, a real-time mining model with highly automated processes and remotely-controlled machines. And there is already a vision for “Codelco 3.0”: an intelligent mining model relying on integrated information networks and fully-automated processes.
  34. 34. Nike Nike  The world’s leading maker of athletic shoes, apparel, equipment, and accessories, has traditionally built its business through a combination of strong innovative products, intensive brand-building, and efficient operational processes.  As new digital innovations appeared, Nike was fast to capitalize in all three areas. Social Media:  Nike entered social media by building a presence on major social media platforms around the world, and then by launching social sites dedicated to specific sports, products, or major events such as the soccer World Cup.  Nike then went much farther by developing the Nike+ concept for runners. Nike+ monitors and tracks each workout by connecting sensors in shoes with devices such as the iPhone and an internet platform.  Runners can share their performance online and even receive customized advice from coaches. Meanwhile, Nike gathers detailed data about how customers use its products. According to CEO Mark Parker, “Connecting used to be, ‘Here’s some product, and here’s some advertising. We hope you like it.’ Connecting today is a dialogue.”26
  35. 35. Nike Mass-Customizing products:  Nike’s custom shoe offerings allow customers to design and order shoes online, share designs with friends, and vote on others’ designs.  These social media capabilities enable customers to engage with the product online before and after they buy.  And listening to these online conversations allows Nike to identify popular designs and sense new trends. Digital Product design:  Nike started using 3D design tools to create new products in the early 2000s. It then diffused digital design and collaboration capabilities to the whole supply chain.  The transition did more than improve the firm’s design capability. It also supported sustainability policies and appealed to younger designers who expected digital design capabilities.  CEO Parker explained “Materials, componentry, construction methods, manufacturing methods, the whole digital revolution … We are embedding all that thinking into the product.”
  36. 36. Nike Connecting digital silos:  Nike was innovating successfully in silos, but missing potential synergies between them. In 2010, Nike created a division called Nike Digital Sport.  The new unit provides skilled resources, budget, and coordination across the enterprise.  The goal was to create a unified consumer experience that can respond to – and even shape – rapidly-evolving consumer preferences.  The unit now leads most customer-facing digital projects, releasing products under the Nike+ brand.  Teams of marketers, designers and IT people work together to develop digital innovations.  They are also finding ways to mine mountains of highly accurate customer data – a key strategic asset for marketing and product development in the highly competitive digital space.  Looking to the future, Nike plans to become ever-closer to each of its customers around the world.
  37. 37. Asian Paints  Asian Paints is the largest paint company in India. Initially, the Company was composed of 13 independently operated companies.  The Asian Paints leadership team developed a vision to unify all 13 companies into one enterprise. To accomplish this goal, they installed an ERP system to standardize processes company-wide. The combination of digital capabilities and leadership capabilities has transformed the business in the following ways:  The sales process was reinvented. A call center now takes orders from customers. The sales team was up skilled and given mobile technology. Rather than taking customer orders, sales people are now relationship managers that solve problems and upsell clients.  Advanced automation has been introduced to plants. By building unmanned factories,  Asian Paints enjoys higher product quality, fewer safety issues, and improved environmental performance.
  38. 38. Asian Paints  Data analysis revealed additional service improvements that could be implemented.  The company was the first in India to ship paint directly to end users. Analytics showed that customers had the most issues with high-end products, due to problems with painters.  Now Asian Paints also offers application services.  The service platform has been leveraged to expand the business. Asian Paints now uses its service platform to sell kitchen renovation services. Their biggest competitor in this space has only 5% of the market and Asian Paints believes it can capture 15%.  In addition to kitchen renovations, the company has expanded its paint business to 17 countries.  The key to Asian Paints’ success was starting with a vision and then continually asking what else could be accomplished.
  39. 39. UPS  UPS was founded in 1907 as a messenger company, and today has revenues of USD 58 billion from delivering over 16 million packages per day.  The company employs over 400,000 people globally and owns around 100,000 vehicles and 600 airplanes to send shipments in a timely manner to its customers across the world.  To enhance its operations, UPS relies on descriptive & predictive analytics, which considers where the company is today & where it will be in the future, with plans to tackle prescriptive analytics in the future, which considers where the company should be, making it the most complex and useful tool in business analytics.  UPS creates value by analyzing the vast amount of data that it collects.  This includes data from GPS devices and sensors in vehicles to track speed, location, number of stops, number of U-turns, and number of left turns. ORION (On Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation), the system the company uses at a cost of USD 1 billion a year, uses fleet telematics and advanced algorithms to optimize routes for each driver to deliver his/her assigned packages every day as well as provide additional training to drivers who need it.
  40. 40. UPS  The system has over 250 million data points, indicating the sophistication of the analyses being run in a few seconds. The system breaks down the problem into smaller parts, which enable it to find answers efficiently and in a timely manner.  The developed solution ensures that packages are delivered on time and in the most efficient way in terms of speed and fuel consumption.  Therefore, ORION helps UPS reduce its costs and save the environment by minimizing pollution from reduced fuel consumption.  Additionally, UPS analyzes data to identify maintenance requirements for vehicles to minimize downtime and maximize revenues by allowing UPS to be proactive about maintenance needs of vehicles.  UPS has the ability to capture most of the value created due to its scale.  UPS could save up to USD 50 million annually from a reduction of one mile driven per driver per day.  UPS was able to decrease the number of miles driven by 5.3 million miles, decrease vehicle idle time by 10 million minutes, saved 650,000 gallons of fuel, and decreased carbon emissions by 6,500 metric tons.
  41. 41. The Value of Data Analytics Figs are US $ per year
  42. 42. Operational Paradoxes – Predigital age In the past, Standardizing limited empowerment. Controlling impacted innovation. The desire to orchestrate action suggested “leashing” rather than unleashing employees. As the web became increasingly open, social & participatory, Husband’s Wirearchy Concept becomes possible, breaking these old paradoxes.
  43. 43. Exploiting the Power of Core Operations Although not as visible as customer engagement, Operational processes are an important element of digital capability. Better operations lead to better productivity, higher efficiency, and greater customer experiences. But to many executives, improving operational performance creates 3 Management paradoxes.  Standardizing and empowering.  Workers empowered to choose their own methods are considered less efficient, yet the standardization of production tasks can make workers less empowered. Digital Masters realize that standardization can make workers more efficient without replacing them because standardization systems provide consistent information that helps people do their jobs better
  44. 44. Exploiting the Power of Core Operations  Controlling and innovating.  Tightly controlling processes can improve efficiency, yet controlling variation can prevent workers from innovating processes in useful ways.  Digital Masters knows that automation is well suited to applications that require control, and new technologies are creating ways to improve process efficiency, increase product quality, and prevent fraud.  Orchestrating and unleashing.  Managers tend to want orchestration, which ties workers to the places & methods that do the orchestrating. Workers, however, want to be unleashed from old technologies so they can focus on more important activities. Digital Masters realize that digital technologies create many opportunities to better orchestrate supply chains.
  45. 45. Transforming operational processes is not simply about adding new technology. Rather, technology, processes, and people must effectively interact for the organization to excel. Sound data must be accessible in real time to both the people and equipment that utilize it, and overcoming constraints and revamping “legacy systems” may be necessary to accomplish this
  46. 46. Reinventing Business Models  Digital Masters create value from transforming the customer experience and achieve huge operational efficiencies from transforming operations.  They also realize that new business models can help them gain an advantage over their competitors.  Executives in organizations still working toward digital mastery must understand the opportunities and threats that exist because of the digital evolution.  Then, they must be prepared to reinvent their business models. Archetypes of business-model reinvention that are driven by digital technology include  Reinventing Industries  Substituting Product & Services  Creating new digital businesses  Reconfigure Value delivery models  Rethinking Value propositions
  47. 47. Reinventing Business Models  Reinventing industries.  An industry structure is reshaped to deliver new forms of value. It can require new competencies, new economic models, and new modes of operations. The power of new digital technologies helps companies connect and create new platforms for greater interaction.  Substituting products or services.  Core products become substitutable by new digital formats. When a company notices declines in customers or profits, it must learn to replace itself and immediately experiment with new offerings.  Creating new digital businesses.  New products and services are created to drive additional revenue. Many times, new start-ups and new entrants spur larger companies into creating new digital businesses.
  48. 48. Reinventing Business Models  Reconfiguring value delivery models.  Products, services, and data are combined to change the value chain. Technology allows companies to connect all of their products, services, and information in a way that brings it to customers and provides greater competitive advantage.  Rethinking value propositions.  New digital capabilities are utilized to target unmet needs for existing or new customers. When rethinking value propositions, companies can combine products and services in innovative ways to reinforce their presence in their current markets Successful business models do not last forever, & Digital Masters know how to make sense of business-model transformation. They have a good grasp of their current business models, which leads them to operate either defensively or offensively. When operating defensively, companies use data to slow the decline of their old models while also cutting costs and releasing investment capacity. Companies operating offensively change their business models first, disrupting competitors by substituting a traditional product or service with a new digital offering.
  49. 49. The What: Building Blocks Of Digital Capability
  50. 50. Most common Linkages between domains of Excellence
  51. 51. To many, digital transformation is either irrelevant or just another passing fad. Still other people may not understand how the change affects their jobs or how they might make the transition
  52. 52. 3 Building Leadership Capabilities
  53. 53. Crafting your Digital Vision  Leadership capabilities are essential to achieving digital transformation, and leaders must be able to create a transformative digital vision.  Although leaders may understand the value of transformation, their employees often need to be convinced.  Successful digital transformation begins at the top of a company, with senior executives creating a compelling vision of the future and communicating it throughout the organization.  Digital visions involve one of three perspectives, and the approach that an organization takes should reflect its capabilities, its customers’ needs, and its industry’s nature of competition.
  54. 54. Crafting your Digital Vision The three perspectives are  Re-envisioning the customer experience.  Some companies begin by re-envisioning how they interact with customers. They think about how they can transform their relationships with customers, how they can be smarter in serving their customers, how they can utilize digital tools to learn from customer behavior, or how they can change customers’ lives.  Re-envisioning operational processes.  Organizations that sell largely to other businesses tend to focus on re-envisioning their operations to become more efficient and to integrate disparate operations. They think about how they might change operations within their industry or with their customers.
  55. 55. Crafting your Digital Vision  Combining the two approaches to re-envision business models.  Some executives combine ideas around customer experience and operational processes. Some are forced to re-envision their business models because of threats that hurt their chances for long-term survival. Others are not facing a crisis, but wish to focus on potential opportunities for new, digitally powered business models. And some create visions to drive the next long-term shift in their industries
  56. 56. Transformative Digital Vision  A truly transformative digital vision must build on an organization’s strengths, engage its employees, and be able to evolve over time. To build the vision, executives must identify the benefits they want, what their end points look like, and how they will engage with customers, employees, and investors.  This can be accomplished by following four steps:  Identifying strategic assets. A new vision must be able to build on an organization’s existing strengths.  Strengths can be identified by looking at the physical, competence-based, intangible, and data assets that already exist. Once assets have been identified, executives must decide if they will remain strategic in the new digital environment.  Assets that will continue to be strategic are those that are valuable, rare, and inimitable and that cannot be substituted.
  57. 57. Transformative Digital Vision Creating transformative ambitions.  Digital aspirations can fall into three categories.  Substitution is the use of a new technology as an alternative or replacement for the same function that the organization already performs.  Extension means improving the performance of a product or process without drastically changing it.  Transformation is the fundamental redefinition of a process or product through technology. Defining a clear intent and outcome.  Because employees are so busy in the workplace, a digital vision that effectively engages employees must include intent and outcome. Intent is a picture of what needs to change, and outcome is a measurable benefit to the company, customers, or employees. When combined, intent and outcome allow employees to visualize the organization’s future and motivate them to realize the outcomes. Evolving the vision over time.  A digital vision must be specific enough to give employees a clear direction and the flexibility to innovate and build on it.
  58. 58. Engaging Organization at Scale Having a strategic vision is imperative for organizations, but that vision is only as good as the people behind it. Employees must be engaged to turn a vision into a reality. Organizational leaders can engage the organization to take an active part in the digital transformation by following 4 steps:  Connecting the many.  Executives should use social platforms like wikis, micro-blogging tools, and enterprise social networks to open strategic conversations with everyone in the organization. The social platforms allow the business discussions to be visible to all, which increases transparency and accountability for what needs to be done.  Engaging the wider conversation.  Executives should lead by example, acting as role models to encourage open dialogue and increase adoption of new ways of working. Further, executive presence on digital platforms increases the likelihood of employee adoption.
  59. 59. Engaging Organization at Scale  Taking advantage of the crowd.  Executives should use crowdsourcing to create solutions for their strategic problems, for it allows employees to actively engage and share their ideas in a non segregated environment.  Accepting the sometimes rough waters of engagement.  New technologies do present implementation challenges. Many organizations see a digital divide between tech- savvy Millennial employees and more tenured employees who face a learning curve to adopt digital technologies. To avoid alienating either group, executives must use communication tools to encourage both groups.
  60. 60. Vision Sets Direction, Engaged People Make It Happen FOSTER NEW WAYS OF WORKING CONNECT THE ORGANIZATION ENCOURAGE WIDER CONVERSATIONS • Closing knowledge gaps • Increasing engagement • Solving business issues • Generating new ideas • Wikis • Microblogs • Social Networks • Video Conferencing • Executive involvement • Digital champions • Reverse mentoring • Use cases SCALINGWIRING ADOPTING New innovation process is creating more innovation, collaboration, and employee engagement across the company’s business units. “Communities that are created on the network are free from geographical, functional or hierarchical boundaries.” “With executive engagement, you don’t have to mandate activity.”
  61. 61. Governing the Transformation  While vision & engagement are important components to leadership capabilities, digital governance is also required.  Digital governance helps move an organization’s digital activities in the right direction. It is essential for companies because of new demands for digital capabilities & new risks from digital activities.  Digital Masters see digital governance as an opportunity to implement new solutions faster, manage challenges better, and gain a more integrated view of customers and operations.  They also use governance to create and enforce policies that focus on the challenges emerging from organizational structures that require collaborating across geographic locations, business units, and specialties.
  62. 62. Governing the Transformation  When building digital governance, executives must think about how they will use 3 major governance mechanisms:  Committees:  Steering committees are the most common type of governance committees. They consist of some of an organization’s most senior executives and work to make decisions related to policies, interests, and projects. Innovation committees can be used in organizations to govern emerging technology. They identify the challenges that can be resolved through innovation, fund experiments, and consider how to adopt useful innovation
  63. 63. Governing the Transformation  Leadership roles:  While committees can make decisions, only leaders can drive change. New leadership roles in organizations include chief digital officers and digital liaisons. Chief digital officers create unifying digital visions, energize their companies around digital possibilities, coordinate digital activities, rethink products and processes for the new digital environment, and provide critical tools and resources. Digital liaisons work to steer digital transformation at the local level within an organization.  Shared digital units:  Committees decide, leaders drive change, and digital units implement change. Although they vary in size and role, all digital units share a goal to drive synergy across the organization. These units can exercise great power, but they do require significant resource and management investment.
  64. 64. Business executives need to be comfortable with technology and with being challenged by their IT counterparts. IT leaders need to have a mind-set that extends beyond technology to encompass the processes and drivers of business performance.
  65. 65. Building Technology Leadership Capabilities  Executives need help when it comes to building the Technology leadership capabilities required to successfully transform their organizations into Digital Masters.  Technology leadership requires the merging of the skills and perspectives of both business and information technology (IT) leaders so they can drive transformation together. Strong IT/business partnerships are important, as they can merge customer and product knowledge, technical knowledge, organizational change capabilities, and IT capabilities into a single collaboration.  However, poor relationships between IT and business leaders can occur. Fixing these relationships requires transparency around performance, roles, and value. IT employees must be helped to think and talk differently about what they do. How well or how poorly IT delivers value for money must be clearly illustrated.  Finally, changes must be made regarding how IT and business leaders make investment decisions.

  67. 67. Building Technology Leadership Capabilities  One effective approach is to create a dual-speed IT structure, where one part of the IT unit supports traditional IT needs, while another part develops processes and methods to operate at digital speed with the business.  To build dual-speed IT units, the right leaders from both sides of the relationship must be brought together.  The leaders must be able to communicate about topics with both IT and business focuses and constantly pay attention to the links between IT-business relationships, skills, and digital platforms that could create valuable digital transformation opportunities.

  73. 73. Framing the Digital Challenge Once digital and leadership capabilities are built, executives must encourage momentum around digital transformation by framing the digital challenge. To do so, they must address:  Building awareness.  An organization’s senior leaders must be made aware of the potential business impact of digital technologies.  They must understand the scale and pace of the digital impact, and must design digital transformation programs that protect profitable operations and assets while also transitioning to new digital business.  Executives must also make the awareness process experiential, using fact-based research to get employee support.  Finally, executives must build a coalition of believers, involving senior leaders to help drive digital transformation inside the organization
  74. 74. Framing the Digital Challenge  Defining the starting point.  Executives must assess their digital mastery by taking a look at their organizations’ current digital initiatives and skills.  Then, they must assess the physical assets, competencies, intangible assets, and data. With this information in hand, executives can challenge their current business models and think of new ways to deliver greater value to customers.  Creating a shared vision.  An organization’s top team must be aligned around a shared digital vision.  Team members must craft a digital vision focused on the business and its customers, not the technology
  75. 75. Focusing Investment Once an organization’s senior leadership team has become aware of the challenge, understands the starting points, and can articulate a shared vision of what the digital future looks like, it can move on to execution, for which it must focus its investments. Executives must carefully manage:  Translating vision into action. Digital Masters first translate their visions into strategic goals. Then, they build roadmaps that begin guiding their organizations toward the vision.  Building governance. Governance guarantees that everyone within an organization will keep moving in the right direction. Building governance requires executives to decide what they want to coordinate and share, determine how to make it happen, and find ways to adjust over time.  Funding the transformation. Transformations always require serious investment. Executives must build a digital investment portfolio that balances the goals of the organization’s vision with the desired combination of both short-term and long-term pay off. They must also diversify their sources of funding between central, local, and partner-supported investments. Finally, executives must present their transformation goals in terms that make sense to both senior leaders and employees so everyone can clearly understand and support investment and funding goals
  76. 76. Mobilizing the Organization The transformation to digital mastery can occur when the organization is mobilized. To mobilize, executives must consider:  Signaling -Getting an entire organization on board with digital transformation is difficult. Leaders must send clear signals to their organizations about the importance of digital transformation and the expected changes that will result. Leaders must also clearly explain the benefits of making a digital transformation by focusing on how transformation will improve how people and various organizational communities do their jobs.  Earning the right to engage- Leaders can influence the digital transformation by serving as role models for the desired change, using crowdsourcing to generate new ideas from people in all areas of their organizations, identifying digital champions and true believers from both IT and business sides of their organizations, and showcasing results.  Setting new behaviors - Digital technology allows for different and more transparent ways of sharing information within an organization. Executives must make visible changes to work practices, encourage adoption, institutionalize new work practices, and learn from failures as they gain more knowledge.
  77. 77. Sustaining Digital Transformation Many organizations fail to achieve their transformation goals because they lose momentum. To sustain the momentum, executives can:  Build foundation capabilities.  Digital Masters understand their skills gaps. They use this information to develop organization development plans that focus on hiring the best people, training existing employees, partnering with those who possess critical skills, and acquiring small companies that have great talent. Digital Masters also build digital platforms that make their organizations’ business processes more efficient, less risky, and more agile. Finally, Digital Masters fuse together IT and business skills to create environments of trust, understanding, and collaboration.

  79. 79. Sustaining Digital Transformation  Align reward structures.  Reward structures help link transformation goals and measures. They should not be purely financial, but should also include intangible incentives such as status, reputation, recognition, expertise, and privileges to drive the employee motivation and productivity that will help reach transformation goals.  Measure, monitor, and iterate.  A measurement and monitoring system will provide an organization with the confidence that its investments and business change can bring real benefits. Properly measuring progress requires that executives manage their strategic scorecards, have metrics that measure the progress of digital initiatives, connect top-down and initiative-level measures, and develop an iterative review process
  80. 80. Sustaining Digital Transformation Sustaining the digital transformation in an age when technology is always changing is challenging. Only those organizations that build successful digital capabilities and effective leadership capabilities will be able to keep up and transform into Digital Masters who will thrive.
  81. 81. Digital Technology will remain the endless agitator of the Business World
  82. 82. To Conclude The pace of technological change is accelerating, and executives in every industry are paying attention. They face a vast set of alternatives for gaining digital advantage. Unfortunately, they also hear a bewildering barrage of advice – sometimes conflicting and often wrong – about how to move forward digitally. In two-year study, it is discovered that many common perceptions about digital transformation were actually myths These myths can lead executives to make unfortunate and costly decisions.
  83. 83. Myths & Realities of Digital Transformation
  84. 84.  Digitization is not a technology issue—it is a strategy and business transformation issue, which is a sweet spot.  Digital technologies such as social media, analytics, the Internet of Things, and mobile are revolutionizing the way that companies work. Yet, based on research by Dr. George Westerman of MIT’s Initiative on the Digital Economy, fewer than 25% of companies are deriving value from digital technologies. However, those businesses that have harnessed the power of digital across the entire organization—not just in isolated silos—are accomplishing amazing things.  Westerman calls those companies “Digital Masters.”  Digital Masters are not necessarily technology companies. Instead, they are organizations that think differently about digital & see it as an opportunity to transform their businesses along multiple dimensions.  Examples cited of companies using digital technology to generate far more value include Burberry, Starbucks, Asian Paints, Codelco, Caesars Entertainment, and Nike.
