News in Digital from The Digital Transformation People #39

Welcome to the latest News in Digital, this time with a focus on talent. Plenty too on the how and why of digital transformation but without organising, defining and securing the talent you’ll need to execute you’ll find it very difficult indeed to be successful.

As Peter Evans of the Platform Strategy Institute describes “talent is the next frontier of the platform economy… Identifying and growing platform talent has become a core strategic competency and over time a critical source of competitive advantage”  The same is true of transformational leaders, data scientists and any number of experienced practitioners with the right knowledge, experience and capabilities to drive success.

Please enjoy this issue, have a fabulous 2020 and if you want to make sure you have the right talent on board talk to us and we’ll help you secure the talent you need to succeed.
