Do you have the multidisciplinary skills to implement a business or digital transformation? by Lisa Carlin. Read more to know what is the proven approach to implement a business or digital transformation that will not just survive, but thrive, now and into the future.

You may have heard this fact before: around 70% of transformation efforts, strategy implementation and change projects fail – this is according to McKinsey research. Last year, Harvard Business Review reported this number at 78%.

I’m committed to improving these dismal odds by building skills in digital transformation, cultural change and business improvement. I’m proud that over 96% of my projects have been successful (48 out of over 50 projects). So I know what works and what doesn’t work and I’ve captured these in a unique diagnostic tool.

Our complex environment makes it impossible to base our approach on a single specialization.

The proven approach is multidisciplinary, and draws off change management, project management, agile, management consulting problem solving techniques, design thinking, strategy execution and other disciplines.
