Digital Transformation Between Desire Reality And Illusion
Digital Transformation, desire, reality or illusion?
The knowing-doing gap is a perfect example of one of the many challenges that organisations are faced with on their journey attempt.
Organisations trying to establish an effective transformation division need an independent entity to think outside of the box, and take some drastic initiatives to make some tangible impact. CEO’s and their board are in a marathon, trying to achieve tangible results quickly and cost effectively, due to the global economy financial challenge.
Many new CEOs come in with a mandate to transform the company-including its strategy, business model, organisation, operations and culture. A transformation is not a series of incremental changes. Rather, it is a fundamental reboot that enables a business to achieve a dramatic, sustainable improvement in performance and alter the trajectory of its future. Because they are comprehensive by nature, transformations are complex endeavours, and the majority fall short of expectation for achieving their target value, coming in on time, or doing both.
As part of LeadVision’s knowledge sharing from our R&D transformation journey in designing and development ( 4 innovative patents and 3 major enterprise solutions, framework, process and approach including LeadVision’s crown jewel DTPE – Digital Transformation Platform Enterprise) we realised the majority of transformation initiative across various industries were still failing, and discovered some of the root causes and developed some rules that we felt needed to be reviewed carefully:
The reality is, nothing will ever change if none of the above rules ever get adopted, so internal and external driving forces must ensure at least some of these rules are actioned, because there is more to lose than gain, if they just maintain the status quo.
Some organisations are still thinking they are doing digital transformation, because they carry the title, or they are part of the newly formed division with zero idea of what digital transformation even means.
LeadVision’s innovation and DTPE objective was to enable a smooth transformation journey. DTPE – is the first global platform built from the ground up, with touch of AI, Machine Learning, Voice command and much more, because we realised there are a few lessons learned that organisations can leverage.

"The knowing Doing Gap" a book by Jeffery Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton, is a great read to shed some light on common corporate mistakes since 2003.
