Organisational challenges

Leaders are required to look at how they optimise, change and even reimagine the way people work. This is so that current problems can be addressed in effective and sustainable ways, but also so that new problems can be solved.

The top barrier impeding an organisation's digital strategy is currently too many pre-existing competing priorities

88% of respondents stated that they engage in digital transformation through strategy and planning

79% of respondents have realised business benefit from “improved customer experience” from their digital strategy execution in the past 12 months

Don’t underestimate the challenges posed by digital transformation

One thing to consider is that these perceived new challenges are still not fully understood or in some instances even recognised, so many leaders are simply reacting to emerging threats. This, sometimes, knee-jerk reaction may be necessary to address immanent threats for the organisation, but is often done in isolation to existing challenges.
