10 Major Challenges of Profitable Digital Transformation

By Dr. Alin Posteucă

More and more companies are lining up for the new journey of profitable digital transformation.

The following 10 major challenges of profitable digital transformation I have met in several production companies in recent months:

  1. The Lack of Real Managerial Commitment for Digital Transformation;
  2. Lack of a Robust Multiannual Master Plan for Digital Transformation;
  3. Resistance to Change at All Levels;
  4. The Lack of Total and Continuous Involvement of All Departments and Beyond;
  5. Reactive Managerial Behaviour;
  6. Poor or Poorly Defined Processes (especially the future ones);
  7. Poor or Poorly Defined Work Method (especially the future ones);
  8. Incorrect and/or Incomplete Improvement Project Implementation;
  9. Lack of a Real Pre-assessment Mechanism of the Opportunity and Feasibility of Digital Transformation;
  10. Make-or-Buy Digital Transformation.

Are these major challenges true? Which do you think are the most important? Why?
