Unify business and technology
Toward a common goal
Lesson 4 – Even today, many organisations treat technology, data and business as separate activities that only come together when they have to. This inhibits digital transformation, which brings all three elements together. On a deeper level, it requires that technology and business decisions become one. Every new initiative or project seeks to solve challenges with digital innovation.
Every technology decision relates to a business goal. Breaking down silos between these aspects of the business strengthens the business as a whole.
Key things to remember are:
1. Build bridges
If technology and business leaders operate in separate spheres today, simple things can bring them together. Lunch-and-learns, one-on-one conversations and ideation sessions can build understanding and trust.
2. Cultivate ambassadors
People with skill sets that cross traditional silos can make an outsized contribution to digital transformation by translating business needs to technology decisions and vice versa.
