Do you have what it takes to be successful in a truly digital organisation?
One of the most important implications for professionals of digital transformation is the blurring of boundaries between traditional functional disciplines. For many organisations, digital transformation heralds a new way of working: collaborative, cross-functional teams often operating in an agile environment.
What this will mean is that traditional, functional career paths will become a thing of the past. Working your way up through a functional route, building niche technical skills, may no longer be an option as organisations increasingly understand the importance of mindset over skills to drive digital success.
Of course, no one is going to expect you to be a ‘jack of all trades’ but in the future you are going to have to place more emphasis on so-called ‘softer skills’ such as collaborative working, customer focus, influencing and communication, all underpinned by a solid commercial understanding. Why? Well, put simply, these are the attributes that will ensure organisational success in a digital environment. And with that personal professional success.
