As even the most robust of industries become digitally disrupted, creating a digital workplace where employees can collaborate and engage with new ways of working is now imperative to survival.
From immersing ourselves in digitally created tools to digitally enhancing our physical experience, micro-revolutions are changing the digital world every 12 to 18 months.
As the digital world engulfs us all, here are the top reasons digital projects fail according to IBM’s 2016 Making Change Work Study, (with 1500 organisations):
(a) Changing mindsets and attitudes, 58%
(b) Corporate culture, 49%
(c) Complexity is underestimated, 35%
(d) Shortage of resources, 33%
(e) Lack of commitment from higher management, 32%
As you go through digital change of your own, are your prioritising the soft stuff, the intangible, the mentality? Because the stats show, unequivocally, it’s the ‘soft stuff’ that renders the hard outcomes.
