Why digital transformation?

Because the shift from a manually dominated world to a digitally dominated one is inevitable. Because no one can escape this necessity and because it is not trivial – but probably the greatest structural challenge of the last 300 years.

Industry meant scaling the craft, e.g. via assembly lines, production lines, just-in-time production. Digitization requires the scaling of software development. But the latter cannot be done with the methodology of the former. The result is called disruption: radical change.

Disruption is especially big for companies in legacy industries.

Car manufacturers, steelmakers, petrochemical, pharmaceutical companies – they come from the world of mechanical processing and manufacturing. They are looking for the digital connection. They know they can’t miss it because it could jeopardize their existence. And they have a huge problem with exactly that.

Companies can no longer put off their digitization. Transformation is the order of the day. Those who do not understand this fall out of time.

But understanding the urgency of digital transformation and successfully implementing it are two very different boots.
With the one boot can make a very good first step. With the other one, the actual route wants to be run. This not infrequently looks very funny. Managers jump around like crazy and full of actionism and are surprised when they fall on their faces.

We implement digital transformation step by step. For enterprises and commercial ventures, we use the SAFe® framework. For NGOs and other non-commercial projects we use the in-house G.O.O.D. Framework©. If necessary, we drive digital transformation in stealth mode. Because change “under the radar” promotes bottom-up implementation and mitigates complexity.

Because: Top Down does not work in Europe. Digital transformations fail if they are not implemented bottom up.

The importance of stealth mode for the success of a digital transformation probably cannot be emphasized explicitly enough at this point.

For the name of the method catalog for the transformation, what the corresponding graphics look like, whether these representations are possibly confusing or intimidating, is in principle beside the point. It is important that a digital transformation succeeds and also works sustainably. Which label you stick on it beforehand is basically secondary.

This is not to diminish the accomplishments of SAFe creators and SAFe optimizers. Rosho.World’s work is based on. All the more clearly, we express our appreciation for the SAFe® Framework. However, it can be very helpful for the introduction of SAFe® to save the designation as such for a point in time when the digital transformation according to and with SAFe® has already succeeded.

Digital transformation step by step and probably in stealth mode – this subtle approach is particularly important for legacy industries. Middle management and employees want to be picked up and won over for the change. Those who disregard this will not succeed. For example, anyone who tries to introduce and implement SAFe® in its entirety and with all features at once top down will quite likely fail. We know this from reports of failed transformations.

This also applies to our in-house G.O.O.D Framework©.

G.O.O.D stands as an acronym for “Governance Optimization and Organizational Development” and is designed for maximum scalability and broadest possible deployment. G.O.O.D is in principle just as suitable for the governance of family structures as it is for the transformation of a toxic power-based government to a competence-based one – nevertheless, it should be implemented step by step and in stealth mode.

We introduce scaled iterations, ensure comprehensive competence mapping, organize the assignment of available competencies in competence circles and the identification of competence leaders.

We stay until the work is done. We leave when the digital transformation has succeeded.
