BYE-BYE COMFORT ZONE, WELCOME VUCA
NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO PUT GROWTH ON AGENDA As the global vaccination campaign continues, companies are preparing for the post-COVID-19 economic rebound to rebuild their financial strength and recover ground that they have lost during the COVID recession. Simultaneously, they must also respond to drivers and trends that the pandemic has either induced or significantly accelerated. They must balance the demand surge and digitalization tailwind against supply shortages.
The Digital Nation – Lessons in building a successful digital economy
The pandemic has turbocharged digitalization across industries and countries, stress testing existing national strategies and bringing any gaps and shortcomings into sharp focus. Drawing on the example of digital leader Sweden, this article focuses on the wider lessons that every country can learn, and the capabilities required to build effective and successful digital nations moving forward.
Digital workplace
Reshaping the workplace Digitalization brings radical changes for all organizations, independent of industry and size. The competitive landscape is transforming, as existing business models face disruption and traditional value chains disintegrate. In their stead, new value networks are emerging, in which organizations develop products and services together with customers and partners. The result is new digital-business logic that brings significant opportunities for companies and organizations, but also requires new business models to enable new ways of working.
The customer meeting of the future
The new wave of digitalization is driven by changes in customer behavior and rapid technology development that contribute to new business logic for companies and organizations. Being able to meet customers’1 or citizens’ specific needs is central. This means a change of focus from specific customer channels to an optimized and integrated customer experience throughout the entire customer journey, from the store to customer service and online.
Leveraging ICT for a World-Class Education System
It is widely accepted that education is paramount in a knowledge-based society. Young Shim Dho, South Korea’s ambassador to UNWTO, once said, “Education is what transformed our country from poverty to the 14th-largest economy in the world.” Yet, education itself is today on the brink of the most significant transformation ever experienced. The underlying vehicle of this change is information and communication technology (ICT), which has already transformed other industries and is now introducing myriad opportunities for students to improve their learning, as well as their results.
