The Monthly “Digital Fit” Book Tuning: The Variety of Workforce Fit June 2020

The Digital Era upon us is about people's centricity, choice, and empathy. 

The purpose of “Digital Fit: Manifest Future of Business with Multidimensional Fit is to share insight about multidimensional enterprise fit from digital characteristics, organizational structure, change, knowledge, and talent perspectives.

It evokes critical and paradoxical thinking about digital “fit vs. misfit,” spark healthy debates on how to define and develop a true digital fit and build a fitting working environment to inspire creativity and accelerate digital transformation.



The Variety of Workforce Fit 

Three Questions to Clarify Digital Workforce Fit Digital is the age of people-centricity. Going digital is an evolutionary path of pursuing the next level of organizational maturity and collective human progress via empowerment and democratic meritocracy. In practice, how to put the right people with the right capability in the right position to solve the right problems? Here are three questions to clarify the digital workforce fit.

The “Perfect Fit”: Is It Possible The Digital Era upon us is about people's centricity, choice, and empathy. In today’s cross-generational, cross-cultural, and cross-geographical working environment, the new generation of digital professionals pursues freedom, independence, and autonomy. Digital fit can be interpreted with a degree of variability. Fundamentally, digital fitness is based on both how you think and what you are doing. From a talent management perspective, how to fit the right talent to the right position at the right time to solve the right problems. The “perfect fit,” is it possible?

Mind vs. Mind: Is Thinking Differently Fit or Misfit? People are different, not because we look different, but more crucially, we think differently. The variety of thought makes the world diversified, innovative, and sophisticated. The complementary thoughts can overcome the common challenges facing humankind, but the misunderstanding with each other causes chaos, conflict, and even man-made disaster. The brain is only an organic computer that creates an energy or operating system called the mind. The mind creates programs called our thoughts. We can change our thoughts just as we can change applications on a computer. Still, what’s the best way to get out-of-date thoughts at industrial age (such as silo, stereotypical, command-control, bias, extreme thinking, etc) out, and equip the brain with the new types of digital thinking (such as holism, balance, creativity, growth, paradox, systems thinking, etc.)

Are you Comfortable to be “Different” Digital is the age of innovation and options. Nowadays, knowledge is only a click away, and digital convenience makes an impact on every aspect of individual life and business management. The world becomes more diverse, dynamic, but also hyper-connected than ever, the stereotypical perceptions or the reductionistic management discipline have to shift for fitting the ever-changing digital era we live in. Digital professionals today must become comfortable with being who they are and be “different.” Every person is unique, no two snowflakes are the same. Competing with uniqueness is more effective than competing for everything. Being real is much more important than being perfect; but what does “real” mean? To what standard, are we being genuine? Daring to start to find an answer to this question enables anybody to lead oneself and possibly others, or simply ask yourself: Are you comfortable to be “Different”?

How Do you Define Organizational Digital Fitness Organizations today are hyperconnected and over-complex, with well-mixed physical workplace and virtual team setting; multicultural, multigenerational, and multi-devicing workforce, what're your team building principles? How do you define organizational fit, in order to build innovative and high-performing teams and transform the whole organization into the digital master?
