Mimi Brooks, CEO of Logical Design Solutions (LDS), delivered a track session presentation in January 2020 at OPEX Week: Business Transformation World Summit in Orlando, attended by 600+ executives and practitioners. During her presentation – Transforming Organizations through Waves of Digital Transformation – Mimi described lessons learned in the first 10 years of digital transformation. These first wave efforts focused on acquiring, experimenting, and launching new technologies without building the organizational capabilities, culture, and worker experiences needed to support sustainable change. Mimi then provided insight into how organizations can focus their efforts for success in the current second wave as they transform to business-digital ecosystems driven by human value and purpose. In successfully transformed organizations, the worker is central to the organizational ecosystem through new work practices, human workers are comfortable with their machine counterparts and a collaborative human-machine approach to problem solving evolves, the organization learns on multiple timescales as a competitive necessity, and that knowledge flows rapidly within ecosystems as the “edges” of digital become the “core”.
