Technology is transforming businesses. It is a transformative engine that gives your organization the power to learn, adapt and respond in a timely manner. Information Management brought this topic to us in their article, “The 5 key elements for successful digital transformation.”

When it comes to adopting and adapting technologies, especially emerging technologies, too many organizations build their technology strategies by aligning with the tactics of their business operations. The resulting disconnect is because IT resources are not correctly prioritized to meet strategic business priorities.

An organization’s capacity for innovation and change directly correlates with its dexterity. Organizations flounder about when they have institutionalized a culture of yesterday’s logic while trying to be adaptive to today’s technology. An agile organization isn’t just about being flexible or decentralized; it is an organization that has the capability to learn as well as unlearn, demonstrate complex problem solving, and implement emotional intelligence.
