Unfortunately, some businesses misuse digital tools and communication channels. The opportunity to empower employees to make their highest contributions are often missed. Forbes magazine reports that digital workplace projects fail 84% of the time. The familiar telltale signs are:
1. Interruptions: People are constantly interrupted, breaking their focus away from processes that lead to productivity, creativity and innovation.
2. Demoralization: When digital is used for communication tasks that require a more personal connection, teams are demoralized.
3. Disengagement: People are forced into routine administrative tasks (easy targets for automation and AI), removing them from tasks that add value, innovation and relational depth—the things only a human can do.
Fearful of these risks, some executives and entire businesses shy away from going fully digital. Those who effectively transform early will thrive. Those who are late adopters will only survive. And those who cling to old ways won’t be alive once the dust settles. The only way forward is to embrace change—to navigate the journey of digital transformation.
