Assume that once your company jumps in a Digital Project, you are now an IT company and you have to think like one.
The first step is realizing that once going digital, you have to think as an IT company, and realize that IT is not a support area within the organisation anymore, but a strategic arm to develop the solutions you need.
This is a profound change and it certainly drives the digital transformation mindset. I always discuss with my potential clients the difference of just digitalizing their company or bringing digital transformation. If you just try to digitalize a process, but the only thing you do is instead using paper now using a computer, then you will see this solution as a burden and IT will be your support area.
If on the other hand you embrace change and understand that by adding technology to your company, you will have to adapt and evolve your business to harness the benefits of technology, then you will automatically see the IT area of your company as a strategic partner.
Do this and bring innovation through IT to your company will be a breeze.
