In this episode I will explain why companies are focusing on the wrong thing when it comes to “digital transformation", why the over-reliance on technology can massively hurt your company, why companies are not and will not become innovative by simply using technology and finally, why there's very little opportunity to gain a lasting competitive advantages against competitors.

In this episode #001 we will cover:

  • Why companies, especially in Germany are focusing on the wrong thing when it comes to “digital transformation.
  • Why the over-reliance on technology can massively hurt your company. I’ll do this by citing various examples from vastly different industries and fields.
  • Why companies are not and will not become innovative by using technology and why there's very little opportunity to gain a lasting competitive advantages against competitors,
  • The very dangerous assumption of why, despite the increased importance of IT, this does not translate into a lasting competitive advantage,
  • What distinguishes proprietary from infrastructural technologies,
  • How competitive advantages erode over time, by looking at past technologies,
  • What makes IT a simple commodity input and not a strategic advantage to enterprises,
  • Why companies need to focus on threats rather than opportunities and should keep IT expenditure in check,
  • Why companies should not be first-movers and why there’s no shame in following your competitors when it comes to adopting new IT technologies.
