It is proved that companies that implement systemic changes in organizing the workforce fostering cross-functional collaboration and interdisciplinary teamwork as well as the ones that invest in empowering employees with digitally-minded culture are likely to achieve Digital Maturity sooner than others.
Another typical feature of digitally maturing companies is the adoption of successful digital strategies which focus both on technology and on the business core competencies which not only enable organizational change but also improve flexibility and allow companies to adapt to ever-changing environments.
Moreover, the organizations that are moving towards Digital Maturity have shown to be more inclined to experiment and to have the possibility to scale up their small, practice-based and iterative tests and make them become enterprise-wide initiatives creating a bigger impact.
In addition, digitally maturing companies are not only able to attract and retain digital talents but also to let employees improve their digital skills and make them thrive and grow within the organization.
Finally, it is important for companies to be willing to invest in the maturing process which means increasing funding for their digital strategies.
