Customer centricity - the aim of digital transformation

Aon's 2020 Talent Transformation Study surveyed 663 organizations across Asia Pacific and the Middle East.Almost seven out of 10 organizations identified customer experience as the primary reason for an organization's digital transformation journey.

Somewhere along the transformation journey, organizations shift their focus to internal factors such as effective processes and automation. Surprisingly, defining new cultural norms was critical for only 15% of the particiapating organisations.

Key Takeaways

CEOs and CHROs not prepared

Over 70% of the organizations fail on the path to digital transforamtion. Technology investments certainly help organisations get a jump start. however, increasing customer centricity throught cross-functional teams has proved more difficult

The need of the hour is to focus on inculcating a digital mindset, with a clear culture-anchored change agenda. With disruption in jobs, organizations need to reconfigure how they manage careers.

Our research indicates that one in four CEOs and one in five CHROs are rated as fukky prepared to digital transformation

Priorities for talent transformation
