Digital evolution is an ongoing journey for every business.
Gone are the days of saying that you have ‘done’ digital after a major technology overhaul. Instead, it is an evolution to transition and optimise your business continually. Even digitally native companies know that they have to innovate and stay ahead of the game because of growing disruption and rapid technological change.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” according to Peter Drucker. How much of your business resource is invested in changing that culture?
In 2013, a sophisticated Trojan known as “Shylock” was unleashed on millions of unsuspecting online banking customers. Its modus operandi was to stealthily install itself onto a computer and await banking transactions, upon which it drained the funds out of its victim’s accounts. Not only was this Trojan highly intelligent, but it also had strong self-preservation instincts.
In the 5 Change Blocks of Digital Transformation, we highlight the ‘process of innovation’ as a key element. But what do we mean by “innovation”?
