Break these 3 habits and Unleash true Potential of your Organization in Digital Age
1.Learning through Printed Media only: Continuous Learning is vital for professional and personal success. Latest information related to your industry is published online through Articles, Blogs and Videos. Printed Books are published later after concepts become matured as practices or standards. Insisting on learning through printed books only could make your company lose the first mover advantage.
2.Avoid or Minimize Emerging Platforms: Traditional practices such as Physical Meetings, Physical Signatures for every document/contract, In House Infrastructure, could increase costs, delays decision making. Using Tools like Webex / Zoom / GotoMeeting could improve collaboration among stake holders (customers, partners and teams at different locations). Using technologies such as Digital Signature, Encryption and Block Chain could improve speed of responding to customer and follow needful legal procurement process. Using cloud platforms can significantly reduce the cost of infrastructure and provide ability to scale as per market condition/business need.
3.Emphasis on Individual Performance only: Successful Organisations are providing WOW experience through innovative products/services in shorter time in spite of constraints/limitations.
Focus on Stakeholder needs, seamless communication among teams, constant collaboration with customer, shifting focus on results than effort makes this a reality.
Traditional Appraisals focusing on Individual performance might create competition among teams than collaboration.
