Digital transformation and the Technology Fallacy

“There was one path to digital transformation, and it was through a defined set of cultural characteristics that are not unfamiliar: actively increasing agility, encouraging experiments and continual learning, recognizing and rewarding collaboration, accepting an appropriate level of risk of failure, and increasingly organizing around cross-functional teams. If you want to start somewhere, this is where you should start. It doesn't matter what flashy technology you have in place; if you don't have these things, you're not going to get very far.”

(Gerald Kane (2019) The Technology Fallacy, Research-Technology Management, 62:6, 44-49, DOI: 10.1080/08956308.2019.1661079)

Interesting insights, or maybe evidence-based confirmation, of what it takes to do real digital transformation: an open mind, iteration, interdisciplinarity and collaboration.
