As a result of the innovations and digitization processes more and more pervading the world, changes in companies follow one another rapidly. The internal structures are transforming, new professional figures are raising, but also new customer demands and new technological challenges. Companies, therefore, must evolve to keep up.
Companies have several departments: which mostly have to adapt to changes?
It does not just deal with internal structure; companies have to be able to monitor their field to figure out which meeting points (or clash) can occur. Not only that, considering the flexibility required and the speed of response, other sectors seeming distant should be taken into account.
First of all, most of the attention should go to the world of studies: tests, ideas, universities and start-ups are a source of constant innovation. Often from some of these studies there might be a suitable solution for a business, or forecast some changes.
The R&D sector has also become the focal point of every company: the most sought after roles are now software and web developers, along with consultants and analysts. Together, they are at the heart of corporate change and effective development.
In particular, areas such as digital transformation and open innovation are the basis of development. Open innovation is, in essence, the opening towards external tools and skills. Given the speed of change today, it is no longer possible to think of completely internal innovations, but rather, it is necessary to create synergistic agreements with the external.
The digital transformation, then, passes from the data science, that is the study of the data that, in empirical way, guides the strategic decisions of the management.
