Digital Transformation

stock-4

The role of the publisher is evolving beyond all recognition. Businesses are being disrupted by changing user expectations, new competitors and technologies that could never have been envisaged a decade ago. Some might not even think of themselves as “publishers” anymore, preferring to focus upon their mission statement: be it furthering knowledge, delivering learning, entertaining consumers or providing information services. 

Success now depends upon meeting challenges head on and seeking ways to work more flexibly and efficiently, speed time-to-market and create new revenue opportunities. 

Migrating to digital is not enough: a transformation of people, processes and technology is required to establish a foundation from which you have the ability to respond to new demands.

Thinking Agile

To navigate the ever-shifting digital landscape, publishers need to ensure that they are flexible and adaptive. That goes not only for content, but for organizational mindset as a whole. What is needed is a fundamental change in thinking about content and a shift in processes and approaches to delivering that content. That means Thinking Agile.

By recognizing that the only certainty is change, you can maximize your ability to respond to industry fluctuations by ensuring that your organization is able to act quickly and responsively. That means embedding flexible, digital thinking in everything that you do, as well as changing the way your organization is structured. 

It also means that you stop thinking about static products, and instead view your content as something dynamic and alive, which can be used in multiple different ways. In order to maximize the lifetime value of your content, agility needs to be built in from the very beginning.
