Exceptional Digital Future Anyone?

It's Yesterday No More

Whether you're a CEO, COO, CFO or whatever, business today demands digital leadership.

Those who haven't yet worked this out will very soon be little more than anachronisms. Dinosaurs and analogue remnants of a quaint time gone by when pen, paper and the manual calculator were the tools of the trade.

Don't get me wrong. I still love physical note taking, but there are better ways available for those prepared to embrace technology.

And Tomorrow Is Coming

And that's the problem or many. The rate of change is staggering and it's hard to keep up, even for those of us who write about this stuff for a living. Of course, as I'm wont to say, if you're looking at the technology, you're missing the point. It's really just a tool we can use to solve problems.

But that doesn't mean leaders can simply ignore it, perhaps throw it over the fence for someone else to deal with.

Your business depends on it and so does your survival.

Historically, business leaders have been expected to 'get' sales and finance. Today, they need to 'get' technology too.

In Fact, It Arrived Yesterday

And it's brought a swag of challenges with it, many as yet unidentified. There are already job roles we haven't yet thought of to fill, and technologies the likes of which we might only have dared to imagine a few years ago.

SaaS platforms today are in their infancy. Cybersecurity is an ever increasing threat. And the technology skills shortage is only going to get bigger as we charge head long in to our digital future.

The winners in this race will be the teams that are prepared. The ones positioning themselves ready for whatever may eventuate. Those whose leaders are working towards an exceptional digital future.

The question is, are you?
