Leadership Drives Digital Transformation Success

When it comes to near-term survival, organizations know they are fighting for their digital existence. Still, despite 80% of organizations moving forward with their digital transformation efforts, very few have experienced the heights of success they hoped. In Digital Transformation: Coming from Behind, we reported consultancy McKinsey & Company found less than one-third of digital transformations are successful.
What makes for a successful digital transformation? Services provider Fujitsu believes its recent survey has cracked the code. With Fujitsu Future Insights Global Digital Transformation Survey Report 2019, Fujitsu found less than half of the organizations can say their digital transformation efforts have resulted in forwarding progress.
The survey, which spanned 900 IT executives across nine countries, also found what Fujitsu believes are the factors of success in digital transformation: leadership, ecosystem, empowered people, a culture of agility, the value from data and business integration. These are all the organizational capabilities Fujitsu identified as necessary for successful digital transformation and calls them the “digital muscles.”
