The Organizational Fatigue & Fragility 

Mastering Digital Innovation: From Innovation Fatigue to Innovation Blossom Digital is the age of innovation. Innovation is the business management capability to transform novel ideas and achieve its business value. And innovation is what leads to differentiation. Due to the hyper-complexity of modern businesses, innovation is essentially about reducing the unnecessary business complexity to tackle the complexities of business dynamics. For many traditional organizations, innovation is still serendipitous, even if they work very hard on it, but innovation has a very low success rate. So, what are the root causes of ineffective innovation management, and how to shift from innovation fatigue to innovation blossom?

How to Overcome Decision Fatigues One significant effect of digitization is increased velocity, complexity, unpredictability, and ambiguity. Therefore, there is a need for a faster response to changes in business and industry based on effective and efficient decision making. In fact, decision-making is one of the most important activities for today’s digital leaders and professionals. Often people rush up to make so-so decisions or are too procrastinated to make timely decisions. Statistically, the high ratio of strategic decisions has been made poorly and caused the catastrophic effect. What are the root causes of those decision failures, and how to survive from decision fatigue and improve overall business decision effectiveness?

Three Digital Fatigues IT Needs to Overcome Digital transformation is an intense, even a stressful journey. It’s more like a sweeping approach to alter many things underneath the surface of the business, such as value, process, culture or behavior, etc. When the need for a significant digital shift is identified, IT often plays a crucial role in “gluing” all important hard elements and soft factors of the business to build differentiated digital capabilities. Therefore, it is a heavy duty for IT to adapt and innovate. But how can IT overcome digital fatigues and revitalize the business to achieve its vision?

Does Business Endure 're-organization' too Frequently? The speed of change is accelerated, re-organization is a frequent discussion topic across most businesses nowadays, but is it an effective way to embrace or adapt to changes, some even doubt whether firms endure re-organization too frequently, what’s the best scenario to do it, how much change fatigue occurs as a result? Perhaps worse, how often change fatigue is misdiagnosed for resistance to change and investments in remedies are misdirected?

The Organizational Fragility Caused by ImbalanceThe black and white boundaries continue to diminish in the 21st century due to the occurrence of increased economic integration, hyperconnected, and interdependent nature of the digital organization. Ad hoc business change is doomed to fail. The digital transformation is a radical change, with all sorts of ups and downs, bumps, and curves. It brings both opportunities for business growth and risks as pitfalls. From a business management perspective, the imbalance of any sort will cause change fatigue, decision ineffectiveness or business fragility. To lead change smoothly, how to identify problems and fix them smoothly?
