In the blink of an eye, digital transformation leapt from to-do list item to daily lived reality for most companies. A global pandemic and its attendant business, social and personal consequences changed everyone’s plans, big and small. Ready or not, companies responded to a culture of social distancing by creating virtual workplaces on the fly. Suddenly the conceptual challenges of a digital business – access, resources, process, security considerations – have become extremely tangible. We collectively experienced a decade’s worth of technology adoption and business strategy executions in under two years. In the process, we have learned that digital business transformation is the ultimate challenge in change management because it impacts industry structures and strategic positioning—not to mention every task, activity and process within the organization.
