Digital

Thanks to the sweeping wave of digitization, it’s easier than ever for disruption to take place in all industries. This new landscape means that everything from software to transportation can now be sold as a service, and each interaction is made with a consumer mindset. Bleeding edge digital practices are clashing with older ways of doing business, breaking down geographical boundaries.

As a result, digital strategy consultants have had to throw away the rulebook when it comes to identifying traditional talent markers like a client’s age or career path. Indeed, many members of the current wave of digital pioneers have little to no experience in the industries they are disrupting. While this may make innovation easier, a digital consultant’s role is more critical than ever for any business.

Our Approach to Digital Strategy Consultancy

A digital consultant is responsible for evaluating and developing talent, identifying gaps in the marketplace, and designing the right roles and organizational structure. At Egon Zehnder, our practice provides both digital and legacy companies with the leadership solutions to harness disruption, rather than succumb to it.

Because our digital consultants come directly from the industries they serve, they can keep up with any changes in those sectors alongside the rapid pace at which the digital sphere is evolving. This means questioning assumptions and thinking about creative talent solutions, which may entail C-suite search, assessment, or advisory work. Our global team stretches from Silicon Valley to South Africa and can work closely with you to find and develop the leaders who can transform your organization.
