In this issue, we start on a serious note by looking at a piece by Klaus Schwab of WEF who makes the distinction between globalization and globalism and urges us now to work together to deal with the consequences of both. Whilst we wonder at the challenges and opportunities of industry 4.0 for our own lives he argues that we also must also act to demand new forms of governance in order to safeguard the public good for all. So the theme for this issue of News In Digital is more sharing, caring and collaboration both in business and society as a whole.

So here we are in Q4 and I sense increasing urgency now around digital transformation. We are well along the way of understanding what it is and management now acknowledge the need to change the way they work: adopt agile working practices, enable collaboration, change the culture and reskill the corporation. But the key questions now are about the ‘how’.You’ll read below about the trillions of dollars that will be spent between now and 2021 but unless we learn the ‘how’, particularly around culture change and people, most of it will go to waste. So please, read on and learn from the experience and insights we’ve curated for you so that you at least will make a success of your digital transformation.

As digital transformation has become part of the modern vernacular the debate has moved on from the ‘what is’ to the ‘how to’. People, culture and mindset have come to the fore and so too have the questions of the tools, strategies, methods and processes we use to transform ourselves, our businesses and society itself. Some things are not as obvious as they might once have seemed and there are unintended consequences in much of what we try. Here are some articles to map our progress and help us learn from the insights of others.

With so much written about AI as the technology to accelerate transformation it is ironic that so much of our ability to extract value from it is dependent on how we manage and organise our own biological intelligence – people.
