Accelerating Digital Transformation

True digital transformation is driven from the core of the organization and takes place at every level of the organization. From strategic to tactical, from the boardroom to the work floor, every level requires a customized solution, and customization requires specialists. Each with her/his own knowledge, digital experience and specialism.

This starts with a thorough leadership assessment of the leaders and their teams, mapping the skills and experience gaps, to later embark on an executive search strategy to find those leaders who do have the required digital skills and experience.

Global mobile network data traffic has doubled in the last two years, driven by continuing growth in smartphone usage, mobile broadband and now the digitalization of societies and industries. But traffic is not the only thing that grows.

Infrastructure and service providers have become our society’s enablers for adoption of tech in industries and a general catalyst for widespread connectivity innovation. Telecom companies and operators are continuously broadening the field of services and applications based on ever more advanced infrastructure. We expect to see clustering of products and services that are using artificial intelligence automation at various cloud and cloud edge compute capabilities, also enabling the emergence of collaborating systems, not only products, within networks.

With this new development, exceptional and inspiring leaders need to collaborate in defining new strategies and ways of working across industries to revamp or sustain their company’s role in new value chains. They need be capable of dissolving traditional silos, streamline and develop new business teams to bring value.

We work with thought leaders, partake in industry discussions and collaborations on human capital, serve device manufacturers, telecom operators, infrastructure, cloud and service providers in helping pioneer industry leadership across all our offices. Our executive search practice helps you find these leaders worldwide – and with our reach into growing segments worldwide, our candidates will lead and deliver the results, and our leadership advisory help and their teams perform.

Technology not only brings physical change to an organization. The type of leaders that implement the technological change are wired differently as well. Each with her/his own knowledge, experience and specialism.

There is a high demand for IT Directors (CIO’s) in applications and ERP, cybersecurity, IT operations and infrastructure, networking, cloud, digital solutions and platforms. Your organization needs these Digital Directors who also are customer centric, can manage key stakeholder, are great in storytelling and a learner for the board.
