Digital Transformation and Leadership: Success Requires Aligning Both People & Culture

As the world changes, your organization must shift to new ways of working. Digital transformation is more than implementing new technologies, however. In order to successfully transition to the digital age, your organization must take a balanced approach to business, technology, and people.

Research reveals that nearly 70% of digital transformation and leadership efforts fail. This low success rate can be attributed to a lack of attention given to culture, change leadership, and engagement.

Our experts in leading digital transformation can help you close this gap by enabling the leadership and culture of your organization to transform, preparing the way for constant innovation and reinvention. We will help you transform the way your people confront the challenges surrounding digital change and disruption. Using digital transformation and leadership solutions, we’ll partner with you to develop your leaders in order to establish direction, accelerate alignment, and scale commitment to digital transformation opportunities.

Scale Commitment
Transforming to a digital mindset requires digital leadership and new ways of working, focusing on a culture that embraces disruption and realizes returns from digital transformation.

Our change leadership approach ensures your organizational change initiatives succeed. We can help you lead the people side of change as you simultaneously manage the operational considerations. It’s a both/and change management process that ultimately leads to you having a more “change-capable,” resilient organization.

We can help accelerate your digital transformation in 2 key ways:

Developing digital leaders

The digital capacity of leaders is seen as the key moderator in the adoption of new digital business models – bridging the gap between technology lead and social system lag. At CCL, we have the capability to develop digital leaders – building on the fundamentals of what makes good leaders, we can equip your leaders with digital acumen and new ways to think and lead.

A digital transformation journey is often a complex process with many steps and levels of maturity. We have the solutions to support every stage of your journey, and we’ll work with you to develop a roadmap for your digital strategy in order to leverage technology to be successful in today’s rapidly-changing and disruptive marketplace.

Your organization’s digital transformation journey is unique. We’ll partner with you to customize a solution for leading digital transformation that prepares your leaders to stay ahead of technology shifts and implement new systems in line with the vision of your organization.
