Re: Transform Sigma CTO
The human element will always be the human element. At the end of the day, humans aren't their mechanical features, there will always be work for our brains.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan, excellent point!  Yes, I fully agree - you cannot get to that point unless we build that competency.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
I would humbly suggest that we should deem it "Digital Competennce" which then transforms into "Digital Intelligence".    We have to establish the competennce first..right?

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan, truly there are "some" that are resonding that way - the easy and quick solutions - that is why this article and interview from Sarah is great in recognizing they are not developing the culture to gain the benefits.  But there are leading advocates - Thomas Stewart and others, Gary Hamel, that advocate the upskilling of human capital.

I am working with a Dean of Computer Science with one of the California State Universities and the term he has referenced for me is "Digital Intelligence".  So there are people that are thinking differently - the good news!  Plus, our thinking community on Telco Transformation.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
The problem is that Human Capital is being increasingly discounted--as all know I have repeatedly expressed concerns about--how do we mitigate it?  Can we?

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan, the answer is in leadership with each organization's staff and human capital.  If we disengage them from the decisions and the process, or follow just a model for any corporation we will not get the results.  We have to engage and apply the technology to the specific interests and needs of our staff.  Not easy, but that is what leadership is all about today anyway!  So it fits in that space.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
The question is how, though--and wonder who has the true "secret sauce"--This was triggered in my mind as I saw this earlier today:

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan, I am with you!  The connection and value needs to be transparent and clarify operations with continuity with goals.  That can tie the organization together and unify the various functions and departments to working towards the same priorities.  That will not only engage the total organization but empower with full capability.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan, well said!  And that takes skill development widely in the organization to be "able" to effectively use it, then creating the vision to see the value, then preparing the organization for the transformation, and then effectively operating with the added capabilities of the transformed environment.

Anything short of that becomes a "tactical" installation.
