g-f(2)264 The Big Picture of the Digital Transformation (5/6/2021), MIT SMR, How Organizational Change Disrupts Our Sense of Self.



Extra-condensed knowledge


We are heading into a period that will make unprecedented demands on organizations to navigate big transitions successfully.
  • This is true because of the digital transformations so many of them have embarked on and because those changes have been accelerated by a year of pandemic lockdowns and remote work.
  • The problem is that even though managers know they have big transitions to navigate, most have sized up the management challenge all wrong.
  • They are focusing almost wholly on the level of task change — on how job content will shift with the introduction of new technology, and how much reskilling will be required.
  • The real challenge going on in the midst of a major transition — the one that managers are overlooking — is the role-change threat. 
    • Role adjustment is the essential process for navigating transitions on a personal level. Therefore, it is the key to navigating transitions at the organizational level, whether the transition in question is an exciting but daunting digital transformation or a welcome but anxious reentry into a post-pandemic office. Ignore it at your peril.
