Tomorrow is too late
Digitally Evolve or Dissolve or The Digital Crisis
When a single digital innovation can cause entire product lines or even sectors to shrink or disappear altogether, corporate and institutions must evolve to survive –let alone thrive. This digital evolution can only be effectively achieved when board rooms become less like meetings and more like Situational Awareness rooms. C level executives should understand their roles to be defined not by traditional models, but rather dictated by the clear directive strategies they execute when armed with the right prescriptive information. To be effective in this ever changing role they must have access to the best mix of digital expertise, entrepreneurial advice and the right talent to execute their directives.
We’re talking about a fundamental shift in the makeup and duties of executives at the board and c-level. If organizations are to grow in a market environment experiencing continuous ‘digital quakes’ it means evolving to handle the increasing pressure of digipreneurs, shorter development cycles and increasing talent shortages.
What you should be aiming for or The New Reality
Board level strategy will be dictated by algorithms delivering instant predictive information. With the business clock speed set to digital C-level executives will adjust, refine and execute this strategy on a daily basis. Executives at every level should be engaged with the core business and fast tracking innovation+ development equally. They will be comfortable at pushing the boundaries, driven by the best in information resources, understanding risk as the currency of progression, driving them into fruitful acquisitions and collaborations with the right start-ups. You won’t be ‘waiting’ for the next digital shock – you’ll either be delivering them or ready to profit from it.
The focus is always bringing the business operations of the organization to a clock speed that matches digital progression, where momentum is daily and priorities are auctioned instantly. It’s about clearing every obstacle (whether organizational, developmental, etc) that reduces you operating at a digital speed.

It is my firm belief that winning Board Rooms turn out to be Maker Rooms.
Maker Executives don’t just understand the intersections of their business models and technology. They trust and inspire key individuals enough to avoid over-organization. By safeguarding true entrepreneurship they enable the creation of valuable business model innovations.
My background has been 25 years of consulting and interim management in financial services, lastly as Director ICT for a fintech bank.
I continuously wonder about the development of approaches to technology related change. Particularly for innovation reasons. By alternating advisory and interim change roles, I had the opportunity to syndicate theory and practice.
