The Theme of 2017: Digital Reinvention

Are you treading water while hoping the next digital trend doesn’t put you out of business? Industries have shifted to adopt new models throughout time, and each shift embraces those who thought ahead while punishing the late adopters. Digital reinvention is the answer going into 2017. It’s not enough to digitize a process or two. It’s about reinventing your organization to focus on the end customer’s experience with you.

Leading CEOs now focus on their customers more than their competition. They’re taking a new approach to defining business strategy, based on the seven drivers of digital reinvention.

Consider this your roadmap:

  1. Customer Experience. The seamless satisfaction of customers, at every company touch-point, with your brand.
  2. Business Models. Corporate leaders embed technology into their business model, including mobile, social, cognitive, and cloud as the foundation for building repeatable and predictable customer experiences.
  3. Market Activation. Monetizing customer relationships should be an outcome of great market planning and execution, as long as the focus remains on the customer.
  4. Orchestrated Ecosystems. Organizations can engage in valuable immersive experiences with their industry and their customers, by building strong foundation of technology-enabled partner networks.
  5. Restless Talent. Companies can excel in talent management and development by championing a culture of design thinking, agile work environments, and experimentation.
  6. Responsive Operations. Wouldn’t it be nice to penetrate new markets faster and accelerate sales revenue recognition? Leading companies have made situational awareness and digitization of their company offerings standard operational practice.
  7. Actionable Insight. Driving brand loyalty by anticipating customer needs and serving up personalized offers based on past behavior is standard practice for winning organizations.

Are exceptional customer experiences at the heart of your business strategy?  Do you need to relook at digital reinvention and how it can drive your company ahead? Does your Chief Marketing Officer know how to leverage digital reinvention in customer programs?  Is your Chief HR Officer using technology to find and recruit the best talent that can help you to execute your vision?  And does your Chief Information Officer have a technology roadmap to get the most out of your existing investment, while still innovating for future growth?
