Collaboration has been evolving to be more complex; from virtual, to matrix and now to digital teams
At each step up in complexity, the rules of collaboration change. Our skills, way of working and corporate culture need to evolve – to keep up with today’s reality and to prepare for the inevitable next step.
As digital transformation sets in this accelerates the journey bringing new challenges in leadership and collaboration and new challenges to our corporate cultures.
Out of date skills, ways of working and culture cause resistance to change, increasing control, reduced engagement, slower decisions and an increase in unnecessary bureaucracy such as meetings.
McKinsey found that “companies can lose up to 85% of the potential value of a digital transformation if they don’t ensure that their organizational culture changes to a digital culture:
This is backed up by further research conducted by the Corporate Executive Board with 1,304 executives, who also found that “technology adoption is not the biggest barrier to digital success; rather it’s an inability to change enterprise level activities. Enterprise changes, such as business skills, incentives and operating models, have 15 times more impact on the likelihood of success in digitization than changes in digital technologies”.
