The essential first step toward digital transformation

Many people wonder where they should start with a digital transformation programme. The most obvious place, since we are talking about 'digital' transformation, is technology.

Starting transformation with technology may include doing things like revamping the website, building an app, or even purchasing a marketing cloud to show that your company is, indeed, on its way to becoming digitally transformed.

Doing so, however, may be a big mistake.

What if trying to retain your staff was missing the bigger picture?

What if, as the cliché goes, loving something means letting it go?

Well, that's what forward-thinking HR departments are starting to understand, creating alumni groups to learn from past employees and their networks.

Do you need a Chief People Officer?

What's in a name? HR by any other name would still send poorly formatted emails.

Read the fantastic story of Travelex's digital transformation and you'll know one of the many principles championed by Sean Cornwell was to 'talk about speed, agile, failure, new capabiltiies, ways of working and collaboration like it's going out of fashion.'
