Some organisations are already well on their way to implementing a successful digital transformation.
Others are considerably less advanced.
We know this because one of Armstrong Craven’s fastest growing areas of work is helping multinationals and other significant businesses meet the challenges posed by the Digital Age.
Mark Hodson, Head of Knowledge and Information Services at Armstrong Craven, covers this topic in the first edition of the AC Review.
In his article, Mark observes: “What is clear to see is that demand for digital skills and leadership outstrips supply and while more commoditised digital skills are abundant, visionaries and strategic soothsayers are what clients really want and need.”
At best, only 20 per cent of multinationals have a designated digital leader.
As Mark comments: “This leaves a huge majority falling somewhere between digital sluggishness to ground-breaking digital revolutionaries.”
One of AC’s clients puts the issue succinctly: “True digitalisation of an organisation is not just thinking about products and how consumers access your services – it is how the whole enterprise conducts its business and being ready for the impact on the human workforce.”
