‘SUBLIME’ Approach to Organizational Transformation in the Digital World

When viewed through the digital lens by an emboldened customer willing to switch brand loyalties for ‘peace of mind’ via the positive benefits of technological innovation, the business world can seem woefully small—and vulnerable. This perception is both accurate and driven by a a steady shift towards extremities in terms of reacting to the presence or absence of ‘delight’ factors in products and services. This, in turn, fuels the need for previously secure and reputed companies to rethink their previously competitive strategies.

Succession planning is increasingly being viewed as an organizational imperative to ensure timely availability of qualified and competent candidates who can take up the reins of critical leadership positions upon the availability of relevant vacancies. It is generally seen as a proactive measure that marginalizes ‘replacement planning’ and hedges against the risk of a ‘leadership vacuum’ to ensure a steady stride in achieving strategic goals and objectives.
