Bridging the gap: strategies for seamless digital transformation amidst skill scarcity

6 December 2023, America 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

What factors should businesses consider when integrating external specialists to bridge skill gaps to achieve seamless digital transformations?

In the current era of digital transformation, businesses face the dual challenge of expanding into new markets while aligning with strategic priorities. A significant hurdle is the scarcity of specialized skills, particularly in the tech sector. This scarcity of tech talent is impeding rapid digital transformation, leading to labor shortages, lack of bandwidth, and gaps in specialization.

How can companies effectively bridge the gap and tackle the challenges posed by skill shortages, specialization gaps, and the need for strategic agility? Organizations need to find the right balance between talent and technology, and adopting tools like AI/ML and automation in operations can help bring business excellence.

Join HGS and a select group of industry leaders to discuss your challenges and potential solutions on how to achieve seamless and efficient digital transformations.
