Being agile and adaptive in today's age of ecosystems and accelerated change has seen a shift in what transformations of legacy organisations look like. Time to rethink what we mean, do and measure, when we talk business transformation.
Defining ' transformation' in relation to strategies and initiatives
Our workplaces have gone through some seismic changes over the past few years and the pace of change doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. From the invention of email sometime in the 1960s or 70s (depending on what story you believe) to instant messaging, social media, and now, artificial intelligence. We’ve come a long way since the Mad-Men-esque days of typewriters and switchboard operators.
Previously, I’ve written about how the world of recruitment has evolved. It seems that using AI could consign fantastical or over-optimised resumes to the dustbin of history, along with the Rolodex and fax machines.
But how do we go about selecting the perfect (or as close to perfect as possible) candidates from AI-created shortlists?
I can't recall who said it, or where I heard it, but it has resonated with me for a while now, providing the inspiration for the first article in this series - "uncertainty is the only certainty in business". Never has this been more relevant than in today's world of rapid change, where organisations are continuously challenged to disrupt or be disrupted.
We’ve all seen films where Artificial Intelligence replaces humans on-mass – and much debate swirls around just how much of this could ever be a reality.
Meet Erica – perhaps the world’s most advanced, human-like robot yet. She demonstrates that we may not be too far away from silver-screen-like AI workers.
Complexity as the enemy is a popular catch cry.
So what creates complexity in organisations and should strategies that generate complexity be avoided?
Here’s a quick summary of what is typically described as making organisations more complex.
People; more staff, more staff locations, multiple lines of accountability and responsibility, role duplication, diversity of workforce, more relationships with third parties / business partners / vendors.

The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies into the world of HR and recruitment is not just an idea anymore, it is a reality. Neural networks, machine learning and natural language processing are all being introduced into different areas of HR.
These developments contribute to the function’s increased accessibility to data-driven insights and analytics, enabling better-informed people decisions.
