Heidrick & Struggles: Realising Digital Ambition Through Talent And Culture
Most companies understand the value a digital transformation can generate, but many struggle to capture its value. A recent Heidrick & Struggles survey of companies in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region revealed that only 35% are satisfied with the results of their current digital efforts.
The three biggest obstacles identified are:
- Lack of articulation of a digital strategy 39%
- Lack of necessary talent 33%
- Moving too slowly 33%
The good news is that there is a significant appetite among APAC governments to help businesses go digital and future-proof their economies. But tech adoption alone will not create sufficient digital acceleration to win. The most successful APAC companies will build the capabilities to ensure they have the right talent at the right time as well as a culture that supports continuous learning and breakthrough innovation.
