Organisational transformation programs carry with them great expectations. Some are planned to boost productivity, efficiency, and profit. Others are intended to achieve a miraculous metamorphosis from slow and manual processes to an innovation-leading organisation that leaves competitors in the dust.
Yet transformation remains difficult. Even achieving modest ambitions, like streamlining an organisation’s workflow, can throw up enormous challenges.
In fact, according to research, 70% of complex, large-scale change programs don’t reach their stated goals.
Recognising the difficulties, many businesses allow the risk of failure to make them hesitate or reduce their commitment, right at the time when confidence and speed matter most.
This is particularly true across parts of the Asia Pacific region, where the uptake and roll-out of digital transformation projects has been slower than markets such as Australia, the US, and Europe.
Take time to prepare and understand the elements of success.
- Bring together the right people to co-design
- Agree how you expect to deliver value
- Apply context to the ways of working
- Identify constraints
Embracing organisational transformation would be much easier to take if you could be assured of success before you start.
Confidence starts with clarity.
