OUR “FUTURE FIT” ADVISORY FRAMEWORK
PEOPLE ARE THE SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS.
Your ability to take them on your digital journey is key. Combining research from CapGemini, MIT and other global leaders in the Digital Transformation and Organisational Behaviour space with tried and tested change management principles, WWC has identified the core ‘People’ components organisations must focus on to gain competitive advantage.
THE ‘PEOPLE WITH TECHNOLOGY’ FRAMEWORK
Global case studies and research have revealed the real factors that drive successful digital transformation. There are clear commonalities that always exist irrespective of an organisation’s size or geography.
These foundational principles are the framework we use to add significant value to your digital change process. We don’t just help you find the right technology solutions to achieve your organisational goals, but ensure your leaders, culture and teams make the transformation work for you.

CHANGE OR FAIL
Your Culture has to keep pace with modern change
The world is changing at a faster rate than any other time in history and the businesses that aren’t keeping up are closing. It is not possible to wait for culture to change organically, it is simply too slow. And the problem is, that is exactly what most leaders around the world are doing. Culture is more than value statements on a wall, coloured bean bags and codes of conduct. It’s behaviour. You need to actively challenge and change your culture in order to shift the behaviour in a business to what has been proven to work in a digital age.
START WITH THE HEART
Transform Behaviour, Enrich Culture, Drive Performance
Cultural obstacles correlate clearly with negative economic performance in a digital age, such as aversion to risk and siloed mind-sets. We believe to transform culture you have to focus on the Heart. Common sayings in business are “That person spoke from the heart”, “They put their heart into it” and “Let’s get to the heart of the matter”. Heart is the character of the person. It is the emotional intelligence, self-awareness and insight into one’s behaviour – thus our impact. The heart is discerning where calm command, grit, courage and resilience are required to be an effective leader, team member and person. Changing behaviour is at the heart of changing culture, and the heart is at the centre of changing behaviour.
Are you safe to lead in a digital transformation organisation?
The digital world requires new leadership thinking and challenges the very core of the way we’ve made decisions in the past. Therefore to lead successfully it is critical to have a deep understanding of why you do what you do.
DIGITAL LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Understanding the digital landscape and adjusting your skills set to take advantage of it is critical.
Today’s successful digital leaders are continually learning, unlearning and relearning. They have a good understanding of their industry and competitors and are building new core skills, not just in technology itself, but also skills that allow them to lead in a digital age. Ultimately a growth in digital knowledge and skills at leadership level will increase your organisational agility, improving capacity to routinely identify and capture opportunities more quickly than your rivals.
LEADERSHIP TEAM DYNAMICS
Successful digital organisations have high performing leadership teams, that are willing to change, at their core.
For most companies looking to digitally transform the politics and culture within the leadership teams are the biggest blocker: Lack of real trust, commitment and accountability combined with a fear of healthy conflict and inattention to results mean they will never make it in the digital age. Making your leadership team perform cohesively in a world that requires us to challenge the status quo and take more risks than previously requires levels of courage and discipline that most struggle with.
YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR STRUCTURE TO MOVE YOUR TEAM
If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.
Organisational Hierarchies (even small ones) are a great innovation of the 20th Century, they reduce risk and bring about efficiency but they kill innovation and disempower teams. If your company has a certain way of doing things, you’re killing innovation. If you ever hear “that’s not how we do it here”, you’re killing innovation. If you are too scared to fail, you’re killing innovation. If you are killing innovation, you are killing your team’s ability to help drive you forward and ultimately disempowering and demoralising them.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY TO STAFF ADOPTION
And it’s not just what you say, it’s what you do.
But you know this already. So why don’t you do it better? Why can’t you do it better? What are the barriers stopping you communicating important initiatives throughout the organisation? Only when you team can see, hear and believe what you are saying, in amongst all the noise will they truly follow with passion and endeavour. WWC’s advisors offer a top to bottom communication assessment that can help you start to challenge the way you currently communicate, in order to succeed in improving staff adoption of platforms and initiatives.
