The Leadership Agenda

Seven Imperatives for Moving Beyond Digital Transformation

True digital capability involves more than just tech:

Without fundamental business transformation, digitization is a road to nowhere

Creating an interlocking system of change.

Drawing on research of transformative companies, PwC Strategy& authors recommend seven leadership imperatives to go beyond digital and transform future leadership:

Reimagine your place in the world

Embrace and create value via ecosystems

Build a system of privileged insights with your customers

Make your organisation outcome-oriented

Invert the focus of the leadership team

Reinvent the social contract with your people

Disrupt your own leadership approach

Reimagine your place in the world

Look beyond your current portfolio of businesses and products and determine what value you will create and for whom.

Embrace and create value via ecosystems

The only way for companies to thrive in this disruptive age is to work with ecosystems and harness the capabilities that others have built in order to deliver their own value propositions—and do so at speed, at scale, and flexibly.

Build a system of privileged insights with your customers 

Customers expectations and needs have grown in line with data use expansion. Gaining insights may become one of your most important capabilities, as the better your insights, the more you can increase your value for customers.

Make your organisation outcome-oriented

Building outcome orientated teams that bring together the needed expertise, knowledge, technology, data, processes, and behaviours from across the organisation to create value through new models of working and teaming. 

Invert the focus of the leadership team

Your leadership team will need new skills and mechanisms to shift to these new forms of value creation. Start from scratch and determine your team's needs as building complex, digitized capabilities requires bold decision-making.   

Reinvent the social contract with your people

The best way to succeed in executing transformation is to adopt a “citizen-led approach” — to have employees continuously contribute and innovate, connect their purpose to the company’s purpose.

Disrupt your own leadership approach

Modern leaders need to be both strategists and executors, tech-savvy and deeply human, adept at making compromises while being guided by their integrity, pushing for innovation and grounded in what they are as a company. 

Pursuing these imperatives will fortify you for the challenges to come as the world moves beyond digital.
