6 pitfalls to watch out for in your digital initiatives
The adoption of digital transformation initiatives continues to accelerate as the world becomes more digital. However, 70 percent of digital transformation projects fail to reach their goals because of factors like lack of employee engagement, accountability, and management support.
Hopping on the bandwagon
Before following a new trend, determine how each piece fits into your digital transformation vision. Experiment with tools that have a real use case.
Fear of long-term lock-in
Some digital transformation solutions will lock you in to a particular platform including high-cost implementation and maintenance.
Transformation leaders make decisions all the time: big and small. Delegate certain choices to those who are impacted most and hold only strategic goals.
Fragmented business operations
Silos can wreck transformation plans. If different teams use different platforms, you may end up with multiple digital transformation paths.
Culture can eat your transformation plans and bury them in slide decks. Build relationships with key stakeholders and show the value before forcing a certain plan.
Shortage of tech-savvy leaders
Find champions throughout the organization who can take the lead as responsible citizen developers, ready to create their own solutions. They will inspire others to follow along.
