The Digital Value Guardian: CEOs and Digital Transformations

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A really insightful article appeared in my inbox this morning from McKinsey entitled “The digital-value guardian: CEOs and digital transformations”.

The article starts with:

“An inconvenient truth for businesses undertaking digital transformations is that without focused and active CEO commitment, there is almost no chance of success. That’s because a digital transformation is a business-model reinvention that requires different functions across the organization to work together in new ways, and can happen only through large-scale investments in building an entirely new set of capabilities. The only person who can make that level of sustained change happen is the CEO.”

The article then explains 5 critical areas where CEOs need to focus their attention to enable their digital transformation to be one of the 30% successful interventions.

And, the article ends with:

Digital is not a destination; it’s a permanent state of operating based on learning and adapting faster than the competition. But that can happen only if CEOs act as digital guardians of their business’s transformation.”
