To set up for change and transformation for innovation success, organization needs everyone onboard, not just the selected few. In current situation, the tech-talents & tech-stuffs are getting lots of exposure and development allocation given the push towards IR4.0.
Many research shows excessive technology adoption alone will create existential crisis with the people in the workforce – which majority are non-tech talents & non-tech stuffs such as from operations, sales & marketing, customer relationship, culture, management and including leadership.
Senior leaders have to rally and devote extra attention to the people in the workforce by upgrading innovation skills for them to join the call for change and transformation. “Balance is key, invite everyone to join & innovate together.”
