16 Jan Why Businesses Struggle with Digital Transformation (and What to do About It)
Digital transformation has changed the way people do business. It has led to new programs and methods created every day—some appear promising, while most are lacking in many aspects.
You’re currently thinking about adapting a new technology for your business. This is the trend and it’s good for a growing company these days.
First, you go online and look for a solution that would make your daily operations easier, something that would set you apart from the rest—an innovation that’s promising for your business. Yet, you see thousands of options available which makes it difficult for you to find the most suitable one.
Here, we’ve put together the most important things to consider when choosing the right tech for your business.
Amount of support from executives
A company planning to introduce new strategies or processes must consider the amount of support a company can give to its people. This will determine how much they are willing to undergo change. How will they handle it? How long will the resources come in before they realise it’s not as easy as they think it is?
Determine how big you can go with your digital transformation and take it all into perspective. It doesn’t matter if you need to start small, you can take this opportunity to show the management how much a simple effort can go a long way. What more can a full-blown digital transformation plan can do?
Understanding from all organisational levels
The lack of understanding on digital transformation can be a company’s downfall. Putting out a plan that not a lot of people can understand is a waste of time and resources, and an unclear goal will result into an indefinite direction in a strategy.
In an interview with Michael Gale, a recognised industry expert, he said: No matter how good your idea is, a lack of knowledge from all parties can prove to be a problem. This is because of unexpected challenges which may arise along with the unpreparedness of your staff should any issue comes up.
Fear of change
People who fear change are not cutout to carry a digital transformation strategy. Opposition to change can cause a company to collapse in the middle of a digital transition. A business who have such people may find it hard to adapt with the ever-moving industry. Thus, any attempt to meet digital standards will fail.
The DSS Way
As outsourcing innovators, Direct Sourcing Solutions aims to integrate new technology in our daily operations. We believe in the openness of our clients when it comes to digital transformation, but we do not want to be aggressive with our approach. As much as possible, we want to avoid overdoing it and end up wasting a lot of time. We want to do this right– the same goes for you, regardless of how big or small your business is.
Identify where you stand as a business by understanding digital transformation. Understand it by knowing what it can do for you and how you can use it to your advantage. A business in the digital age that strives to make things easier not only for itself, but also for its customers, needs a solution that can help it integrate well with the dynamic landscape.
