Incoherence? The digital organization blurs the geographical, functional, organizational, and even industrial borders nowadays. The enterprise is nothing more than a “switch” in the network lattice of the large ecosystem. Hyper-connectivity brings an abundance of opportunities for businesses to expand, also unprecedented risks intimidating their survival at any moment.

Incompatibility Change is the new normal with increasing speed. There are two types of change: proactive and reactive. Proactive implies anticipation of changes via predictive or pre planning change scenarios. Reactive is adaptive to change that has already occurred or is underway. Many changes, especially business transformation are difficult, you have to remove roadblocks, overcome change obstacles, get out of the “comfort zones,” and manage change in a structural way.

Indecisiveness Digital leaders and professionals are all facing pressure to make either strategic or tactical decisions every day, Decision making is both art and science, this is particularly true in uncertain times. An effective decision can be defined as an action you take that is logically consistent with the alternative you perceive. A "decision" has lots of connotations of finality, there are also lots of obstacles on the way.

Incompetency With rapid changes and exponential growth of information, businesses today need nothing less than a paradigm shift in their thinking about the fundamentals of how organizations work, predict the emerging opportunities and risks, know the varying causes of business deficiencies, to drive progress changes, with the goal to build an ever-evolving, hyperconnected and highly energetic digital organization.

Ignorance We live in the world with all sorts of problems; many problems exist because they are either ill-defined or the concept cannot be adequately captured contextually. There are illogical problems or irrational problems. Some problems are the symptom; other problems are perhaps caused by people’s emotional reactions to a set of circumstances of events.
