Resistance to and fear of change is present in just about every organisation in every sector. Change can be daunting as it takes us away from what we’re used to trusting and understanding.
However, change is also incredibly powerful and useful. It helps us do things better, more efficiently and with better results. When it comes to digital change, technology is constantly making such rapid leaps forward that organisations must adapt to continue to keep up with competitors.
Public sector organisations are complex. Work is wide ranging and takes place in multiple locations with a variety of different software and hardware. To move forward they must embrace digital change or risk getting left behind with consequences on costs and further pressure on service delivery.
Digital transformation allows the centralising of data and access to the data in a way that improves agility, innovation and efficiency. It allows organisations to understand that everyone is a contributor to both the organisations, and the most productive ways of working.
It’s also realising that the tools people need to do their job will not be the same as they need tomorrow. Resistance to change from individuals, departments and whole organisations is what must be addressed to allow this behaviour.
Training and education are key in helping to explain to organisations how they can best navigate digital transformation. Organisations need help moving to structures that are more collaborative and ultimately more effective.
