The Promise of a Modern Business Model & Digitization
Today’s business journals and business school literature are filled with articles about transformation initiatives of different types. Most are talking about digital transformation—the use of new, fast, and frequently changing digital technology to
solve business problems. At a time when many still wonder whether digital transformation is real or just the latest buzzword, many industrial companies are taking the promise of digital transformation very seriously.
- Most transformation programs fail to deliver to promise due to limited understanding of what really needs to change.
- Without taking a holistic view, true and sustainable transformation is impossible and requires investment in process change, system deployment, and organizational adjustment.
- Sustainable transformation results in customer satisfaction with repeatable product and process innovation, which maximizes an organization’s return on investment.
