In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, all the buzz surrounds companies enforced acceleration of digital transformation projects to survive and remain relevant. Yet here’s a cautionary tale, according to a Forbes survey, up to 84% of all digital transformation projects fail. While as revealed in a Harvey Nash / KPMG survey, a mere 18% of companies rated their digital technology tools and practices as “very effective.” The road to effective digital transformation is littered with wasted money, job losses, and C-suite exits, as a result of projects that could not overcome the roadblocks to success.
