How to avoid becoming another digital dinosaur

Companies have to look beyond the presentations and five-year plans and start to ask themselves: “what are we good at?”, “what do we want to be better at?”, and “what can I do now to get there as quickly as possible?”. Execution and agility is now the main focus as companies become increasingly digitized.
