Kuramoto In the Digital Transformation Promotion Office we are working to achieve Digital Transformation from three perspectives: Mindset, Experience, and Engagement. Today, team members working on each area will introduce our initiatives.
Firstly, when talking about “Digital Transformation” (DX), we must be aware that this is a transformation or change. Change is hard, often more so than you might initially expect. In our private lives at home, we may try to develop a new habit, but despite the benefits these habits often only last a few days. It is difficult not only to change, but to sustain change for a long period of time, especially long-standing habits or aspects of your mindset.
Digital Transformation requires a fundamental change in the way we work and even the way we think, but we need to undertake this process so that it does not prematurely end before fully taking root. With this in mind, my area of focus is mindset transformation applying what is known as “Change Management”. Change Management is about systematically transitioning an organization to the way it wants to be (moving away from the status quo) in a way that minimizes disruption and resistance caused by change. It also focuses on helping those affected by the change to adapt as quickly as possible.
Basically, we are working to implement initiatives to achieve DX that can be sustained not only for a few years, but for many years into the future.
