After two years of accelerated digital transformation, more than half of IT leaders say their organisation knows what it takes to digitally transform a workforce, but after such rapid change, many employees are now facing a challenge to keep up the pace. That’s according to a new Dell Technologies survey. What’s more, 69% of respondents believe their organisations underestimate how to engage with their people properly when planning transformation programmes.

The results highlight how the recent period of rapid transformation is leaving businesses and their workforce in need of time to recharge, reflect and refine before embarking on new or iterating on projects. Despite the huge progress and efforts of the past few years, the research highlights how there’s still a potential for transformation to stall as 62% of respondents believe their people’s resistance to change can lead to failure, while 50% say they are still worried that they may be left behind due to a lack of senior vision/authority to now capitalise on the opportunity before them.
