This is the second part of a seven part series exploring value created by digital. The series outlines the problems your may encounter during a Digital Transformation. This part looks at employee inclusion. It outlines how to demonstrate value.
Kodak invented the digital camera in 1975, but berried it due to internal resistance.
Employee reluctance to change.
Digital Transformation can mean uncertainty for employees. It's seen as a challenge to their roles. This leads to possible loss of job and family security.
The upheaval and uncertainty can create pains within processes. This causes a reluctance to change for some employees. This reluctance can can derail your Digital Transformation. That wastes time and money.
Reluctance to change manifest its self in a number of ways. The reluctance doesn't always come from employees within front-line tasks. You may struggle to get funded, resourced or marketed, due to hesitation from decision makers.
Resistance to change isn't anything new. For example Kodak invented the digital camera in 1975. But, they berried it due to internal resistance to change. The digital camera threatened their legacy film business.
Doing nothing increases risk. That means you get left behind like Kodak. That's far riskier than taking a leap forward and embracing change.
Beyond reluctance with a vision of value.
A big picture visions demonstrates value throughout your organisation. This vision demonstrates how you encapsulate needs. That shows how the transformation helps people at all levels.
The vision must break down silos and complicated layers. This is a threat to the personal forts and their job security. But these personal forts increased cost, wastage and risk.
To stay competitive you must get the greatest value from data. The personal forts leave employees frustrated, chasing knowledge.
Transparency can elevate doubt and uncertainty with employees. Being consistent empowers employees to own the transformation. That allows them to contribute to the vision and work towards the future.
