Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

Navigating through the digital era is often likened to racing a F1 car. In both, having the know-how isn’t just sufficient.  Sans the how-to, you can’t steer and lap. A survey conducted by Harvard Business School Global Research Centers and associates identifies six qualities that make a firm digitally mature. Here’re they:-

  • Dynamic: Dynamic understanding of the customers. New offering should address evolving customer desires.
  • Informed: Be data-informed and not data-driven. Analytics are great, but judgment and critical thinking are greater.
  • Challenging: Challenge the status quo and rethink the core business. Growth mindset eases adaption to changing conditions. Listen to customers, suppliers and stakeholders.
  • Distributive: Distribute and co-create decision making. Collaborate and think collectively. Look beyond functional silos.
  • Experimental: Experiment and learn, rather willingly. Conduct quick and relevant experiments of new products. “Fail fast” and “Learn fast”
  • Ethical: Be ethical in decision making and proactive in governance. Above mere statutory compliance, be accountable for the unintended consequences of all actions. This builds long term trust.
