Preparing the Organization for a Continuous Transformation Process

Digitalization provides extensive potential for optimization throughout the value chain. Many companies have recognized these opportunities. However, most organizations are unable to cope with the additional and, in some cases, highly complex project work which this entails. The challenge is not just putting digitalization approaches into practice, but also implementing a continuous digital optimization process – in order to achieve an ongoing improvement in the company’s situation.

The issue is how a permanent digital transformation can be achieved with limited capacities. Sometimes significant adjustments to organizational structures and workflows are necessary in order to establish this process throughout a company. Strategic digitalization programs offer an opportunity here to prepare an entire business and its structures for the process of transformation, while at the same time leveraging extensive potential for optimization. The ongoing development of “organizational digital readiness” is therefore the key factor in the successful implementation of the digital transformation process for many companies.
