Q: The concept of the efficacy of Digital transformation brings dexterity, resilience, and niche-centricity is now both a managerial inspiration and leadership excellence. However, consistent with numerous studies, maximum Digital transformation efforts are failing. What do you believe is your experience of the situation? 

A: The reality is that we see this concept with all new ideas. We are all searching for the nectar of life, the magic wand, the ultimate answer. We sincerely don’t do sufficient research, planning, and crisis management. With all the vivid new matters, we don’t want to forget the basics, and we’re people first, so suppose human-focused approximately any new initiative. 

Q: The expectancies of humans have modified noticeably within the last couple of years, and so do their expectancies from technology. How are we able to position humans at the core of digital transformation? 

A: We have recognised since the 80s of the ideas of behaviour engineering and design thinking. But, to entice, the magic answer has been offered to us with the aid of using a notably negligible number of IT services vendors – which they could be available and resolve all of our issues, of course, at a price. Of course, we depend on the vendors of the IT and technologies– maximum enterprises now no longer have in-house development capability to create their very own solutions. But, we have to ensure that the vendors who work for us now no longer dictate to us. We have to make certain that what they advise suits our vision, mission, and values; serves the particular desires that we our organisations have; and that, with inside the method of design and implementation, we win the hearts and minds of individuals who will want to buy-in to the solutions, the human end-user. 

Q: Digital transformation isn’t always something new, though. The stride of transformation has amplified and accelerated. What has modified approximately efforts to convert business models and digital platforms? 

A: The process of globalisation and the notion inside the want for non-stop increase in preference to sustained performance. Also, with such occasions as the Covid19 pandemic, corporates have understood that in which that they’d 2 or 3 years plan, they might really put into effect a change in a month. The hassle is that the human component became effectively ruled out because of a loss of choice. However, the results of that took lots longer than a month to be recognised.
