CFO Insights — 23 & You: How many traits of digital DNA does your company have?

Published on: Oct 17, 2019

Given how frequently the words “digital” and “transformation” appear side by side, it’s easy to overlook the real distance between them. After all, digital technology — understanding it, as well as implementing it — represents just one of many challenges organizations need to conquer to orchestrate a full transformation.

As more companies embark on the journey toward digital transformation, however, not all travel at the same pace. The extent to which an organization can weave its insight into digital capabilities throughout its culture — embedding it in every function and activity — is a measure of its digital maturity. And the most digitally mature companies are those that possess a common set of traits that determines how they organize, operate, and behave.

For finance executives who understand the potential of digital technology, enumerating those traits can help overcome challenges as they strive to articulate goals and align the funding needed to manage digital transformation.

This issue discusses how CFOs can assess how digitally mature their companies are, how digitally mature they need to be, and how they can absorb digital DNA.
