That’s a whole lot of competition! It’s even scarier when you consider how global modern business is, so you also need to look at America, Australia, and every other country in the world when sizing up your competition.

Most companies are launched on the back of product or service that does something different or more effectively than anything else that is available, and so when they begin trading they are the very definition of new thinking.

However, these companies often quickly become defensive as they seek to maintain their customer base and market share, and before you know it these new…

It is a common dilemma faced by CTOs, CIOs, founders, product managers and many more that when thinking about how to bring their idea to life. Should we build it or should we outsource it?

This also isn’t just a one-dimensional question. Do you need a digital strategy or an innovation strategy, an innovation consultant, a software development production house or a digital agency that can do everything? The options are vast.

Of course, no one knows your business and idea better than you but are you internally the best equipped to bring that idea to market and to your…

An overview of what implementing a digital innovative strategy looks like and some ideas and tools to develop a solid and successful one.

Being innovative is a key factor to success. However, innovation and digital transformation is still a challenge for many businesses: according to McKinsey, 84% of executives claim that their success depends on innovation but only 6% of them are satisfied with their digital innovation performance.

This data shows that many companies large and small try to innovate and somehow fail or don’t obtain the results that they have hoped to get.

Why is innovation difficult to create…

In my line of work, I meet many organisations struggling to innovate the way management intended. Most fall prey to the same fundamental mistake — they invest large amounts of money in Digital Transformation projects, hoping for a shower of success that will catapult them to an unassailable market position. Unfortunately, it often leads to underwhelming results.

As James Clear points out in his book, Atomic Habits, success comes not from a once-in-a-lifetime transformation but a continuous process of improvement. The issue with Digital Transformation is that it makes you think otherwise.

“Agile” — a word I try to avoid like fire when talking to our customers.

I try to avoid it because it’s a tainted word and hearing it makes people anxious. The lack of a long-term, detailed plan can be scary. But having a long-term plan gives rise to a false sense that we know exactly what is going to happen in three-six months or a year.
