As things stand at present, for many Australian organisations, the envisaged benefits of digitalisation could well be undermined by the presence of outdated work practices within the business.

Report highlights

  • Australia is lagging in digital transfomation
    Using the MIT methodology to measure progress along four pathways to digital transformation, Australia is lagging compared to global progress.
  • The adaptive workforce will have a huge impact..
    and many organisations are unprepared. Respondents anticipated that 32% of their workforce would be ‘adaptive’ by 2025, which represents a 300% percent increase from the state of the current workforce. This is likely to have huge implications for how Australian business operates.
  • There's no time for delay
    Many organisations do not have the required operations and tools in place to support the required workforce transformation that will enable successful digital transformation.
