The Pervasive Appreciation of Digital Transformation

The pervasive digital means change is the norm and happens the whole time thereby delivering faster and increasing market share.

Digital is the new paradigm shift to deeply connect the business nature to the natural ecosystem with very characteristics of hyperconnectivity, nonlinearity, adaptability, unrepeatability, and unpredictability. Digitalization is not just about one-dimensional technology adoption; it has to stretch out in every business dimension. There is a pervasive appreciation throughout the enterprise, particularly the senior management for information abundance, change competency, and innovation fluency.



Information pervasiveness: With overwhelming growth of information and continuous business disruptions, today’s digital organization simply just can’t stand still. Information potential directly impacts the business's potential of the organization. The power of information management is to deal with the mountain of information with both technology and human know-how, convert information into invaluable knowledge or real-time insight across the organization in handling business uncertainty and solving business issues effectively. Hence, there is a pervasive appreciation throughout the enterprise, particularly the senior management for adequate, accurate, and timely information management. It involves the application of technologies and processes of capturing, developing, sharing, and using information or knowledge, to ensure the right people getting the right information at the right time to make the right decisions and get their work done smoothly. So people would appreciate the value of information management and power of knowledge.

Change pervasiveness: We are living in a complex world where change and conflicts are continuously changing and that make it impossible to have a complete knowledge and understanding of many issues facing the business today. The pervasive digital means pervasive change and “speeding up to change.” There are organizational change, technological change, and behavioral change with increasing speed. How successfully organizations can handle change and continuous digital disruptions depends on how fast and capable they can adapt to the business dynamic. It’s important to gain a pervasive appreciation and work on a fairly comprehensive change management model that views change and transformation as different points along a continuum with very different tools and competencies needed along the way. Companies can reach inflection point for change when they can conduct and synchronize change with the scale of interrelations and interactions to make a leap.

Innovation pervasiveness: The pervasive digitization requires companies to rethink how things are done in organizations and perhaps it’s time to open the next chapter of innovation. Digital innovation has a broader spectrum and enriched context. The pervasive innovation is coming at seemly a much faster pace, more change and potential disruptions. Organizations can become highly effective in executing innovative ideas by leveraging powerful digital platforms and technologies, harnessing cross-functional collaboration and continuous improvement. The nature of how the "implementation of the idea has to follow a logical path for the solution,” provides a great opportunity for managing digital innovation. Organizations have to learn from experimenting, amplify the best practices, cultivate innovative climate, and build a well-developed innovation framework with the periodic review to help businesses sustain innovation progress, minimize risks of idea flops, and improve the innovation management success rate.

Digital transformation is a long journey full of uncertainty, velocity, complexity, and ambiguity. The pervasive digital means change is the norm and happens the whole time thereby delivering faster and increasing market share. Digital leaders and professionals need to broaden their outlook, envision the bigger picture, identify emerging digital forces, and make pervasive appreciation of digital trends and characteristics.The broader you can oversee and the deeper you can perceive the holistic digital impact, the further you can reach the digital vision and the pinnacle of digital transformation.
