"Throw me a frickin' bone here, people!" While Dr. Evil probably wasn't talking about digital transformations, given his track record of failure to take over the world with his evil plans he could have been!
Here in Aotearoa, we've seen those stats that over 70% of digital transformations reportedly take a nosedive. But let's not get our knickers in a twist just yet! Much of this is about perception – a bit like Dr. Evil's 'evil plans' that look impressive but are slightly off the mark.
So, why do these initiatives often end up in the "Not Quite What We Planned" folder? Let's break it down, Austin Powers style:
- Lack of Strategy: It's like sending Mini-Me on a mission without his wee scooter. No direction equals chaos!
- Resistance to Change: Stuck in the past? Even Number 2 knows that's not how you make a business 'shagadelic'!
- Lack of Leadership Support: Without buy in from the top team, you're basically a villain without a plot. And we all know how those stories end.
But hey, it's not all doom and gloom. Unlike Dr. Evil's schemes, your digital transformation can be the mojo everyone talks about and avoid the need for those sharks with laser beams on the heads. A solid plan, a team ready for change, and leadership that's on board with the plan - that's your recipe for success.
