Don't Confuse Digital Transformation with Innovation

By Suzan Brigani

The biggest illusion in digital transformation is that it will make you more innovative. Unh-uh. Going digital mainly lets you do the same things, faster. It reduces friction for users, be they customers or employees. It helps you suck less, and maybe even achieve occasional delight. But by definition, digital transformation replaces current analog processes with digital ones. Whereas innovation is about identifying unmet needs and new opportunities, and solving for them in novel ways that deliver new value and achieve adoption.
