    Digitalization is a top priority but efforts are stalling

    Eighty-seven percent of senior business leaders say digitalization is a company priority, yet only 40% of organizations have brought digital initiatives to scale. The gap between aspiration and achievement is widening for enterprises attempting digital business transformation. Without a shared vision across the organization, digital transformation efforts will continue to stall. 

    40% of organizations have reached scale for their digital initiatives.
    91% of organizations are engaged in some form of digital initiative.

    Define a digital ambition for business transformation

    Most organizations are doing digital projects, but this does not mean they are a digital business. Organizations must first determine the right mix between digital optimization and transformation. This can change over time, but a clearly defined digital ambition provides direction and focus for the work ahead.
