Digital Transformation

By blending human and technical capabilities, companies can kick their digital transformation into gear—and keep the momentum going.

Digital transformation isn’t a new imperative for business leaders, yet in many cases, companies have a long way to go. Many companies have yet to apply digital technologies and ways of working at scale. Or to create a culture that embraces change, experimentation, and continual learning and improvement. Still other companies are planning end-to-end transformations but have yet to move beyond the drawing board.

So how can companies drive their digital transformation? The answer lies in creating a vision for the future and steadily building the capabilities—technological and human—that let you achieve it.

THE KEYS TO DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION: GETTING THE SUCCESS FACTORS RIGHT

In this video series, BCG experts explain the six factors that can flip the odds of success in a digital transformation—and they show how your organization can address those factors effectively.

 

BCG’s Approach to Driving a Digital Transformation

Only about 30% of companies navigate a digital transformation successfully. Navigating it in the midst of uncertainty—the new reality—is especially difficult as new behaviors and expectations evolve at warp speed. Our approach is focused on building companies of the future that blend digital and human capabilities, applying them to all aspects of their business.

Transformations succeed when they are incremental, cost-effective, and sustainable. That means focusing on outcomes: new products, improved processes, and other use cases that let you build capabilities, business value, and buy-in for the transformation.

We start by assessing where a company stands—and where it wants to go. We look at its people, technology, and data. At its culture, leadership, and governance. And at industry trends and disruptions. We help companies tie their digital transformation strategy to business outcomes and goals. In fact, according to Forrester Research’s Q4 2020 Wave report on digital business transformation services, BCG has a sharp focus on identifying and delivering measurable business outcomes.
