The Digital economy is here to stay. Digitization innovations are disruptive to current business models, creating new business opportunities and challenging long-standing business beliefs. An MIT Center for Information Systems Research study revealed that 32% of Board Members surveyed believe that their firm’s revenue is at risk from digitalization within the next five years. The study also revealed that “challenging the status quo” is the second most important Board activity. Digitization is already pushing the status quo. However, some organizations are not entirely ready for the impending disruption partly because technological innovations require knowledge that is not present or not mature.
