Human capital transformation behind digital transformation

Article May 9, 2022

We've been hearing a lot about digital transformation for the decade. I also know a lot of companies are investing a great sum to implement emerging tech.

Platforms, automation, blockchain, hoo-haa...

But what I haven't heard much, if at all, how people behind the transformation are driving it.

As much as you may think that digital transformation is mainly about tech, the other side of the same coin gets talked less.

Digital transformation happens only when human capital transformation happens.

Digital transformation means changing value offerings and business models enabled by technology.

Changing technology = changing in how people work = changing skills requirements.

The skills you acquired 10 years ago may not be relevant today and even more tomorrow.

It doesn't matter what the white-collar professions that you're in; marketing, HR, finance...

The top skills that matter today and tomorrow will be the ability to collect and integrate data, synthesize insights with analytics, automate workflows with automation.

The skills needed to operate have changed, and so should you!
