The New Book “Digital Hybridity” Chapter IV Introduction: The Hybrid Digital Management

The hybrid digital management can bring greater awareness of the intricacies and the systemic value of organizational systems.

The digital paradigm has many dimensional, it is like to solve a jigsaw puzzle with thousands of pieces, easy to get lost when trying to capture the big picture. Digital Management is a hybrid and holistic discipline with mixed management styles for managing everything that is necessary to get people to adopt new ways of working and running a high performance and high mature digital organization.

Transactional/transformational digital competency: To reach the high digital vision, businesses have to build a healthy digital capability portfolio with the balance of transactional capacity for “keeping the lights on,” and the transformative capability for lifting the organization to the upper level of business maturity. The transactional or operational capability usually makes only minor adjustments to the organizational structure and management. It often takes the linear stops of tuning the business to ensure it keeps spinning. However, the transformational capability is the game changer. It creates something new out of something old, helps the business reach the new horizon out of an old vision. It can evoke fundamental evolutions in the basic political and cultural systems of the organization for achieving the high-performance business results. Thus, digital organizations today have to strike the right balance of being transactional to keep spinning and being transformational to make a leap.

Innovation management & rule setting: Innovation is doing something better than it currently is. It’s a mindset, process, and the strategic business competency today. It has to strike the right balance of breaking down some outdated rules but setting a level of digital rules and guidelines. Innovation challenges the status quo and that is important for a healthy and innovative organization. Too rigid rules will stifle creativity. However, being unruly incurs risk, you should set the updated digital principles for managing innovation and mitigating risks. To get the best results, you need to structure the creative process. An organization that has a lightweight process which allows creativity and innovation to flow, get protected, channeled and nurtured will succeed more often than those that do not have such as process. The rigorous innovation structures are supported by the right policies and programs. The process to support the creation of sustainable and systematic innovation can be structured, but innovation management is a holistic management discipline which requires effective leadership, risk-tolerance culture, well-established framework, a set of updated rules, the lightweight processes and a series of best and next practices.

The “push and pull” forces of digital transformation: Running a high-performance digital business is no longer a single dimensional effort to apply cool technologies or focus on short-term profitability only, it’s a multidimensional management discipline to embed digital into every core business process and build differentiated business competency. It’s about how to leverage the opposite business forces of “push and pull” for adapting to changes and orchestrating the full-fledged digital transformation. Organizations have to push themselves out of the comfort zone, but also pull all critical business elements to form the unique business competency. Motivation usually has both “push and pull” factors. You are pushed to get out of the comfort zone, and you pull all important resources together for moving forward. Through all necessary “push and pull,” “bend over and stretch out,” the organization can strike the right balance and achieve the premium state of the business.

The hybrid digital management can bring greater awareness of the intricacies and the systemic value of organizational systems, processes, people dynamics, technology, resource allocation, and economies of scale., etc. It is important to break through the industrial constraints and limitations, set the right balance of old and new, in pursuit of possibilities rather than impossibilities, to drive changes and accelerate digital transformation.
