The “Rigidity” Quotes of “Digital Master” Mar. 2020

 If the situation requires a new formula or option, rigid thoughts or processes prevent the ability to create a new expression from manifesting at that moment.

"Digital Master” is a series of guidebooks (28 + books) to perceive the multi-faceted impact digital is making to the businesses and society, help forward-thinking organizations navigate through the journey in a systematic way, and avoid “rogue digital.” It perceives the emergent trends of digital leadership, provides advice on how to run a digital organization to unleash its full potential and improve agility, maturity, and provide insight about Change Management. It also instructs the digital workforce on how to shape a game-changing digital mindset and build the right set of digital capabilities to compete for the future. Here is a set of “Rigidity” quotes in “Digital Master.”

1 The matter of fact is that dysfunction, complication, inefficiency, or rigidity are not always so easy to uncover. It’s important for management to leverage system understanding for identifying the early signs of a dysfunctional system such as process in-adaptability or process rigidity.

2 A strong blockade for innovation is rigid thinking, relying only on how things were done before, and lack of “out-of-box” thinking.

3 Good ideas nearly never emerge spontaneously but from interactions, not single individuals. Silos, rigidity, inflexibility, static mindset, or bureaucracy, etc, create gaps and slow down idea flow and stifle innovation.

4 Innovation processes need to be flexible and dynamic, require much more effective collaboration to minimize cost and manage risks, so the right level of guidance is important, but the overly rigid processes, inflexible structure or too “pushy” goals stifle innovation.

5 An obsession with the rigidity of efficiency stunts the innovation creation process. Innovation is fluid and should not be straight-jacketed.

6 If the situation requires a new formula or option, rigid thought prevents the ability to create a new expression from manifesting at that moment.

7 Innovation is all about disrupting outdated thinking and old ways to do things, such as a silo, status quo, dysfunction, complication, rigidity, or bureaucracy, etc.

8 The speed of information directly impacts the speed of the business. A well-crafted Information strategy helps to diagnose the current Information Management issues such as a functional silo, outdated technology, process rigidity, etc.
