Getting ahead of Digital Disruption

You are ahead of the curve if your business has strong sustained growth in key business areas fuelled by disrupting competitors. You are making intelligent spends on big bets, infrastructure and workforce. Your culture embraces change and technology with your business leaders, supported by HR, having clear perspective on how their workforce needs to change to respond to current and incoming disruptions.

Are you scrambling with a middling or unsatisfactory share price / growth performance? Many organisations who are struggling with disruption are running a number of disjointed, sometimes competing initiatives to renovate traditional businesses and start new revenue streams. With this, attempts to make change rarely sustained with change fatigue setting in. There is a willingness to consider workforce implications of disruption but Business / HR often lacking in capability to execute effectively.

Do you think that disruption will not hit your industry or are you burying your head in the sand? Many organisations are waiting to see how their industry will change especially if the business is currently profitable with a good share price / revenue growth. As business and HR have not as yet considered the impact of disruption on the workforce, there is a limited spend on infrastructure and technology and the traditional culture and ways of working still exist.
