There is a new technological revolution and its content is more disruptive than that of previous ones.
That today our IT systems can “think”, implement a series of virtual reality technologies and analyze the enormous quantity of data that has become available is thanks to the massive introduction of digital management platforms and to the integration of these. This has modified the nature of the workplace, turning them into environments where people and machines collaborate creating outcomes that were once unthinkable and with important impacts on people’s cognitive and behavioral models.
This wave of innovation requires a deep rethinking of the way work is organized so that entrepreneurs and managers are not dragged along by technologies but rather use them to innovate the way they do business and approach their market, organization and processes.
Digital technologies create value and generate competitive advantages if an Organization:
- Becomes agile and integrated if it breaks the organizational silos by using horizontal coordination and integration;
- Uses extensive teamwork and collaboration in its processes;
- Optimizes processes and does not digitalize waste, vicious circles and activities that do not add value;
- Valorizes its possibilities by allowing information and new ideas to circulate freely both within and outside the company, involving partners, suppliers and others in their learning and innovation network;
- Supports the development of wider awareness and operative personnel directly in charge of guiding the processes and the machines take on responsibility;
- Decentralizes decisions among the business units and toward the frontline;
- Favors the consolidation and spread of the in-house competencies throughout the company;
To know how to guide a company in this new industrial revolution entrepreneurs and managers must develop advanced cognitive models and behavioral modes as they seek to become competent and knowledgeable decision makers.
Self-awareness, learning mindset, adaptability to constantly evolving situations, creativity and new ways of thinking are among the main characteristics of digital leadership.
