How To Tackle Culture as a Driving Force of Digital Transformation

Think Tank - 4:00 pm - 4:25 pm

As Peter Drucker famously said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast". Everyone is eager to use and accept this as a reality, but most struggle with what it really means and how to go about taking it on. This can be even further compounded when a single part of the organization, such as IT takes on this challenge and the rest of the company is not on the same page. Couple this with a rapidly changing workforce that has a completely different set of ideals around culture and you are sure to have your breakfast devoured before your coffee even begins to cool. A holistic, passionate, "heart centered" approach is required and you need to manage all facets of your culture to get hiring right, develop your talent pipeline, improve productivity and ultimately lower attrition. These are the basic pillars required to sustain a true digital transformation. 

Takeaways: 

  • Culture is not just a buzz-word. It can, and will be, one of the core things that ultimately drives your organization and your company's failure or success. 
  • Today's workforce is changing and we have a tight labor market- if you have an old school attrition model, you will not be able to compete with those having a development model.
  • Getting your culture right gives you the foundational pillars of your organization and business. 
  • Future successful organizations will rely on their culture, not their technology as their differentiator. 
  • A holistic approach is required - and there are clear examples of this working and not working that we can observe.
