“Data and analytics are obviously key. Leading organizations are more likely to have a comprehensive data acquisition strategy and differentiate themselves from competitors based on their data platform. This difference in strategy means that business users are more likely to have access to a consistent set of up-to-date metrics for decision making, and the organization can generate predictions about their business from data they collect.”

“Driving digital transformation does not imply replacing old business assets and capabilities. But, like any significant building addition, doing it well requires modifying the existing structure. There are no blank sheets of paper. Digital transformation is about reconstructing the firm around digital operating principles, integrating traditional assets to address new challenges and pursue new opportunities.”

“Digital Operating Principles..”

So how does a small business get started?

  • How do we instill an “employee advocacy” program using social platforms that make sense for our business?
  • Can we adopt a mobile-mindset to drive engagement? The reality is this is where our clients and customers are…most of the time!

  • What collaboration tools / cloud software services can we leverage to be more effective in how we operate?
  • What skills training and development do we need for our organization? Specifically, what DIGITAL skills are necessary to focus on?

“In fact, we’re living in a golden age of opportunity for all kinds of businesses, but what’s vital is how these companies approach digital.” — http://www.the-european.eu/story-11449/how-to-be-fit-for-digital-in-the-age-of-disruption.html

“I thought that the article would resonate with a small group of social media pros. Instead, it was viewed more than 100,000 times, with hundreds of comments from people in all kinds of different roles and industries struggling with social media. The problem — this digital skills gap — was deeper and more pervasive than I realized.”

“Inadequate tech skills cause workers to lose two hours every day, translating into 500 lost hours per year, or about $10 million per 1,000 employees. Organizations need to offer focused, continuous training in these areas.”

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” — Mark Twain
