The world was a simpler place when PwC first set out to measure Digital IQ a decade ago. “Digital” was just another name for “IT.” The CIO was not generally regarded as a strategic leader. And putting new technologies to work was a relatively straightforward, and siloed, job.
Since then, the scope and scale of digital-driven change has grown immensely, and organizations have invested a lot of time and money to keep up. Yet company leaders are no better equipped to handle the changes coming their way than they were in 2007. Organizations aren’t so much falling behind as struggling to keep up with accelerating standards.
How, then, can you consistently unlock value from digital investments in a rapidly advancing world? The answer is at once simple and infinitely complex: focus on the human experience. Rethink how you define and deliver digital initiatives, consider employee and customer interactions at every step of the way, invest in training, culture and much more.

We’ve been conducting Digital IQ research since 2007, and this year marks our eighth survey of business and IT executives globally. The 2017 edition was fielded September through November 2016 and included 2,216 respondents from 53 countries. Respondents were evenly divided between IT and business leaders. Reflective of the distribution of respondents globally, 62% work in organizations with revenues of $1 billion or greater, and 38% have revenues between $500 million and $1 billion.
