Why an organization's response to digital disruption should focus on people and processes and not necessarily on technologyDigital technologies are disrupting organizations of every size and shape leaving managers scrambling to find a technology fix that will help their organizations compete This book offers managers and business leaders a guide for surviving digital disruptions but it is not a book about technology It is about the organizational changes reuired to harness the power of technology The authors argue that digital disruption is primarily about people and that effective digital transformation involves chan. Talent Development The Real Digital TransformationSavvy industry analysts will tell you that while many executive leadership teams like to talk about their embrace of digital transformation principles very few can actually demonstrate their claims Why is there a disconnect between aspirational goals and the reality within typical organizations It s not about technology adoption it s all about people related talent issuesThe authors of The Technology Fallacy believe that the best way to respond to digital disruption is by changing the company culture to be agile risk tolerant and experimental That being said this book is about the multitude of reasons that digital reinvention is proven to be difficult to accomplish and how to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of progressThe author s observations from surveys or interviews plus their recommendations and resulting guidance is based upon the findings from four years of research The body of knowledge that they ve compiled is organized into three sections Navigating Digital Disruption Rethinking Leadership and Talent for a Digital Age Becoming a Digital Organization and fifteen related book chaptersFocusing on the organizational changes reuired to harness the power of technology makes total sense to me based upon my own experience in working with clients to address the digital disruption challenges they ve encountered The notion of Digital Darwinism came to mind as I read the author s insights It s not the strongest of the species that survives nor the most intelligent that survives It s the one that is most adaptable to changeOf course most leaders want their organizations to change but many individuals within the organization may fear and resist any attempt to upset their safe status uo In the author s assessment an organization s ability to adapt to disruption is viewed as their digital maturity journey Therefore they ve suggested an approach that will help leaders to measure how mature their organization is currently and where they re placed relative to their peer groupNote they define digital maturity as aligning an organization s people culture structure and tasks to compete effectively by taking advantage of opportunities enabled by technological infrastructure both inside and outside the organization I found chapter 8 The Digital Talent Mindset to be very insightful As an example the author s research suggests that the inability to attract and retain digital talent is one of the most significant threats brought about by digital disruption Moreover they uncovered two key facts in chapter 14 Test Fast Learn Fast Scale Fast 1 The cultures of most legacy organizations have evolved to reduce or eliminate variations necessary for the experimentation that in turn leads to innovation 2 Leaders find it challenging to innovate while also keeping the company s core businesses running efficiently and effectivelyIn summary I found the takeaways paragraphs at the end of each chapter entitled what we know and what you can do about it to be a useful recap after you ve finished reading the book Meaning this is an actionable resource that I ll go back to periodically for guidance
