The New Book Introduction Chapter 2 The Interdisciplinary Aspects of Orchestrating a Digital Business Ecosystem

Digital maturity requires a well-defined digital framework enabling to develop cross-functional and interrelational management processes and practices. 

The digital ecosystem is dynamic, nonlinear, and complex, hence, digital management also needs to be nonlinear and transdisciplinary to deal with “‘VUCA” new normal. Digital leaders today have to frame bigger thinking boxes, and approach problems via the multifaceted lens, technically, scientifically, and culturally. An organization achieves the state of equilibrium through its leadership effectiveness and management capacity.

Don’t rest until you’ve done everything you can do to make your organization as resilient, inventive, inspiring, and accountable as it can be: The emergence of potential opportunities for exploiting digitalization is likely to follow a nonlinear pattern as the pervasiveness of an organization’s digitalization journey increases. The business across the industrial sectors are blessed with intuition and risk-taking attitude. They can practice out-of-the-box thinking, introduce new business concepts, and develop cross-functional platforms, systems, and procedures for efficient use of natural and human resources. They are experimenting, exploring, learning the lessons, and developing the best and next practices for reaching the next level of digital adaptability.

Digitalization represents the next stage of business maturity which will improve how the enterprise works and interacts with its ecosystem, with people at the center of its focus: The autocratic or pyramidal enterprises are often limited by their DNA to take benefits of such ecosystems because the digital ecosystems are most likely to have a lattice-based architecture rather than a hierarchy. To improve the structural flexibility and strategic responsiveness of the business, the democratic processes will overtake hierarchical control, and hence, the new organic and self-organizing digital system approach to organizational structure could become a reality. And that will be a true evolution of the digital transformation. In fact, tuning the organizational design and structure to achieving the high level of autonomy is the symbol of the digital maturity.

The organizational digitalization journey has to permeate into business vision, strategy, culture, communication, and process: The digitalization is now spreading rapidly to enable organizations of all shapes and sizes to reinvent themselves. But dealing with the significant challenge of digitalization requires accelerated digital mindsets, leveraging multidisciplinary knowledge and insight, taking an end-to-end response and a structural approach. The solutions to today's complex business problems will most probably cover standard aspects such as culture/behavior change, support resources for design/build/implementation of changes, planning and controlling, but also very specific/technical/ functional/system aspects. To engage and function in such dynamic environments, it requires fundamentally different mindsets and paradigms such as accepting that influence is attainable, but control is not. It is important to understand the philosophy, psychology, and technology behind the digital transformation. The challenge is to move from the individual level to the system level.

Digital maturity matters because the digital transformation is not just a one-time business initiative; it requires a well-defined digital framework enabling developing cross-functional and interrelational management processes and practices to help reduce business tensions, frictions, and conflicts that arise; prioritize important things on the “TO-DO” list, set reasonable timelines, and achieve well-defined goals via stepwise approaches.
