“We’re in the midst of an industrial revolution, which means, essentially, the change that is going to be necessary is going to be much bigger — and is therefore going to need much more help — than traditional change.” – Tony Saldanha
In this episode of OneTAKE Live, host Ian Barkin speaks with Tony Saldanha, president of Transformant and co-founder of Inixia Inc., about what digital transformation actually means, why so few companies seem to be able to achieve it, and how businesses can prepare for the tech revolution ahead.
The fourth industrial revolution is here — and this one has all the world-changing potential of the first three. To keep up, companies will not only need to transform their processes digitally, but also their mindsets and strategies as well.
To get a better idea of what businesses will need to accomplish to navigate this revolutionary period, we asked Tony Saldanha — a globally recognized author, speaker, and expert in all things digital transformation. According to Tony, companies will need to gain a shared understanding of what digital transformation truly means before they can actually begin the process of changing. “That’s issue number one with digital transformation,” Tony explains. “If you cannot define it precisely, you’re going to fail. Don’t get me wrong, you may have a successful pilot, a successful rollout of technology, but against the goal of transforming yourself to survive and thrive in an industrial revolution, you will fail.”
Tony previously spent more than 27 years with Procter & Gamble in a variety of digitally focused leadership roles and is now the president of Transformant as well as co-founder of Inixia Inc. As a speaker and author, Tony travels the world providing businesses and leaders the tools and strategies they need to create real, impactful digital change within their organizations.
