Digital maturity some final thoughts

Digital Maturity – Some final thoughts

  • Develop a vision – lead it, don’t let it lead you

  • Communicate it to your staff

  • Visibly support it from the top

  • Take small, but continuous steps

    Only wrong move…making no move at all.

Questions partners should ask

Questions Partners Should Ask

What should you be asking as a leader

What should you be asking as a leader…

  • Are you using technology to transform your business, or are you just adding bells and whistles to existing processes?

    • Starting point…Isn’t asking “How do I use technology strategically”

    • Its “What would be the ideal way to interact with and serve my clients”

What should you be asking as a leader1

What should you be asking as a leader…

  • Are you ignoring important business differences as you standardize processes across the firm?

    • Core tenet of the digital economy is that standardizing processes is a no-brainer.

      • You operate the same way, everywhere

      • Creates a reliable, consistent experience for clients

  • Problem – some senior leaders believe that is some standardization is good, more is better…and it isn’t

    • Certainly Tax and Audit processes need to be in place…but what if you’re reviewing a Real Estate transaction or structured deal or negotiation with a client – would creativity work in their favor? Might you change your process?

  • So define what should and shouldn’t be standardized

What should you be asking as a leader2

What should you be asking as a leader…

  • Who is making sure the firm’s digital strategy is being implemented?

    • You and your leaders may identify a technology platform that could make your firm more efficient and better serve key customers… Great idea!

    • But many firms might then be inclined to rely on a committee to implement the new processes… Bad idea

  • Many leaders assume that good technology can ensure effective execution… It can’t

    • Somebody needs to own the responsibility

      • Top leaders must name an executive accountable

      • Must have the political clout to overcome resistance

      • Committees are not capable of this type of oversight

What should you be asking as a leader3

What should you be asking as a leader…

  • Is electronic data empowering your people or controlling them?

    • For most firms, the great advantage of the digital revolution is the data they can collect

    • Knowing the status of an engagement, where the work is currently bottlenecked, who has availability to take on more work, financial benchmarks

  • All this data can lead firms down different paths

    • It can push more knowledge, decision making, and accountability to the professionals doing the work

    • Or, it can be used to centralize decision making and monitor

  • Evidence indicates that first approach benefits firms and employees

    • Control assumes that good thinking only happens at the top of the firm

    • Contrast that by relying operating-level professionals to deliver fact-based work creates smart, more innovative firms

    • And more motivated employees
