Digitalisation is resilience
Nothing says “confidence” more than a belief in the future, not merely waiting out challenging times but actively shaping our identity to adapt. We have always debated the role and nature of business resilience and continue to do so but the pandemic has brought what resilience actually means into sharp relief. Indeed, despite the temptation to move on from this oppressive situation after so many months, analyses of companies today cannot but consider the pandemic as a watershed between what was and what will be.
And it actually seems that what will be will not be bad at all, or at least that is what entrepreneurs must think if - as a survey by Deloitte Private on almost three thousand companies worldwide found - in addition to the 32% of companies that had already started digitisation processes before Covid-19, another 25% are currently engaged in digital transformation processes while 23% say they have started them in response to the pandemic. As to the remaining 20%, 18% are thinking about it without having formalised a precise plan while 2% have not considered the issue.
