  • Digital savviness is the key ingredient in the success of corporate digital transformation.
  • CONTEXT
    • g-f(2)151 The Big Picture of the Digital Transformation, 3/1/2021, geniouxfacts, How To Succeed At Business Digital Transformation.
  1. Executive teams that understand how to wield the power of digital technologies are rare, but they deliver huge premiums in corporate growth and valuation.
    • Digital savviness is an understanding, developed through experience and education, of the impact that emerging technologies will have on a business’s success over the next decade.
  2. In the coming months, as the global economy begins to recover from pandemic-induced slowdowns, the digital savviness of top teams will make the difference between the winners and the also-rans across industries and geographies. 
  3. Now is the time to consider the digital savviness of your top management teams and ask yourself what you can do to bolster it.
  4. Your efforts could be key to your company’s future success.
  5. Developing a Digitally Savvy Top Team 
    • Bolstering the digital savviness of senior leaders represents a valuable upskilling opportunity for most companies and a high-return investment in the increasingly digital future. 
  6. We suggest that companies pursuing this opportunity consider the following 4 recommendations:
    1. Determine the current level of digital savviness on the top team.
    2. Strengthen the key members first.
    3. Expand the effort. Once executives in key roles begin to increase their digital savviness, leaders of the effort should aim to develop the capability more broadly, targeting at least 50% of top team members.
    4. Pursue the 10 performance differentiators. As top teams become more digitally savvy, they can focus their attention on the factors that distinguish the high-performing companies we studied.
