The “Digital Master” Navigation

  • Digital Master Introduction - Digital Master refers to those high-performing, high innovative and high-mature (less than 15%) digital organizations; they have both clear digital vision and well-crafted digital strategy; they are courageous to be in the vanguard of digital transformation with a quantum lead. But they also proactively develop more advanced and unique digital capabilities step-by-step and build a digital premium into their very foundation of business, such as digital thinking, culture, agility, intelligence, and structure, and they achieve high performing results through strong digital governance discipline and reach its zenith as the digital world continues to expand and diversify.

The race of human against the machine is ongoing; the knowledge life cycle is significantly shortened, just as the “agricultural mind” lagged behind the industrial age earlier last century; and now, the industrial mind can also drag down the digital speed. The pace of information technology is so rapid that no one can rest on a static mind-set, past accomplishments, or the wishful thought that everything is perfect the way it is.

Every organization has a culture, whether defined or not. Actual culture is a function of leadership, starting at the top. Culture is like the “glue” that holds and binds an organization together. It is the most invisible, but powerful, fabric weaved in the organizations and surrounding the society as well.

  • Digital Master Chapter V Introduction: Digital Capability-A business capability is the set of abilities needed by an organization in order to deliver value.
