Digital makes the significant impact on how we think, live, and work. There is the mix of old and new, physical and virtual, order and chaos. We are in a time of tremendous change, the dawn of digital age, the path to the next level of digital maturity, also in the era of confusion and information overload. 

Therefore, it’s critical to identify, understand, and avoid pitfalls, discover strategic and predictive pathways to change, increase confidence, position a brand and leverage resources to make the digital paradigm shift effortlessly.


Incoherent confusion Organizations rise and fall, not on the quantum of plans and resources, but on the capabilities to lead and manage, yet most important to execute.. Disconnect occurs when wishful thinking at higher levels detaches from reality at lower levels; when misinformation leads to misjudgment; when hierarchical business systems are dysfunctional, silo thinking or bureaucracy is propagating; when misalignment of "do what you say, say what you mean, mean what you do" cause culture inertia; when value proposition fails to be translated into meaningful operational deliverables; when the work is not done right and needs to be redone, then business disasters emerge. How to handle all those issues smoothly, ameliorate business fluidity and improve the overall organizational manageability.

Incorrectassumptionsoftransformation Embracing digital is inevitable as that is now part of the reality. However, taking a journey of digitalization is a bumpy road with many ups and downs.

Unprofessioalismcharacteristics The business environment is full of uncertainty, velocity, complexity, and ambiguity, high professionalism is an important quality for today’s multigenerational, multicultural and multi-devicing workforce, and it is a foundation to shape growth mindsets, cultivate open-minded leadership, nurture culture of learning and positive atmosphere with intellectual stimulation, to both unleash employees’ potential and drive organizational maturity seamlessly.

Ineffective Decision-Making

With exponential growth of information and frequent disruptions, decision and problem-solving in complex businesses is difficult due to various reasons such as uncertainty and ambiguity of business circumstances, lack of priority, unconscious bias, outdated knowledge, or scarcity of business insight, etc. Business leaders and professionals need to capture the right information, predict the trends, prevent pitfalls on the way, and follow the right processes to overcome changes.
