What Will Digital Transformation Mean to Your Organization in 2017?

Posted by Jeff Elliott on 2/23/17 1:40 PM

In 2016, the world of business witnessed huge innovations and technological advancements in digital transformation. For starters, the internet of things (IoT) was further developed and we saw organizations demonstrate creativity in the solutions they devised. From sensors to energy grids, many private and even public sector organizations utilized IoT in order to become “smarter.” Looking ahead, Oxford Economics estimates that just over $1 trillion (USD) will be spent in the global IoT market by 2019.

Business leaders also continued to further explore the relationship between data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). In fact, in their 2017 Tech Trends publication, Deloitte predicts that the digital universe is expected to increase in size. Data space as large as 44 zettabytes – where one zettabyte is equal to one billion terabytes – will be common space. It does not stop here!

Leadership Traps in Business Process Metrics Part 4

Creating a Culture of Variance Explanation

This series of posts has identified numerous leadership traps in the form of common misuses or misunderstandings of metrics.  In this post I’d like to touch on the power that can be harnessed within your teams by avoiding these traps and creating a culture of variance explanation.

Let’s start by thinking about how performance review meetings typically work.  Imagine a group of people talking about the performance of a given process or function.  On a big screen is a hot mess of a metrics dashboard.  Very few (if any) people understand how the metrics are calculated, if or how they relate to each other, or if they actually measure the performance of the process against its goals.
