Most of us like to believe we’re one of the former, but in all honesty, most of us are more or less reluctant to change – whether we like it or not. The Cognitive Enterprise isn’t here to change people, it’s here to help you harvesting all their potential and meet your future challenges.
People are generally cautious to change. There are many reasons for this cautiousness, or skepticism, not least of all because we’re conditioned to fear the unknown. People who voice these concerns (more or less subtly) are usually labeled as hard to work with, but I disconcur; people that are reluctant to make the necessary changes have simply not been given the necessary information to understand why the change needs to come about – and that’s on you.
Any successful digital transformation needs to rely on three pillars humans, technology, and business. When an organization embarks on a digital transformation journey, it’s essential that all three pillars are given the same attention. Too many times, we’ve seen organizations and businesses put all their focus on technology, thinking that the business-pillar and human-pillar will follow suit as the technology is implemented. In the absolute majority of cases, this approach will fail. And in the rest of the cases, you’d have been more successful if you’d put equal emphasis on all three pillars. Technology is an essential part of the desired state that is the Cognitive Enterprise, but technology doesn’t stand on its own legs – you need to balance all three pillars to make a successful digital transformation.
