Withstand uncertainty as an adaptive organization
Organizations around the world are trying to keep up with the rapid pace of change in their industry. In many cases, a combination of competitive, economic and social disruptions are threatening market positions and existences.
If this change is the only constant, then adaptability has to underpin a ‘new normal’ – and be at the front of your mind so you can grow and thrive into the future.

Strategic initiatives: what should your priorities be?
In recent times, organizations have proven that they can operate, survive and even thrive in extremely unpredictable and volatile conditions. This should not be a one-off occurrence.
Becoming an adaptive organization involves driving strategic initiatives that allow you to rapidly pivot from risk, respond to external forces and continuously keep up with changing demands.
Perspectives: what do you need to consider?
At Fujitsu, we believe achieving this future-proof environment requires business leaders to change their mindset towards adopting new attitudes, which have the potential to continuously enhance and evolve their organization for long-term success.
“It’s time to pay back technical debt”
The biggest cost of technical debt is the cost of data – your most powerful asset. The valuable data and subsequent insights stuck in legacy systems will, at best, impact ability to move at pace and, at worst, impact survival.
By minimizing this risk through application modernization, businesses can start to drive real value via their digital transformation efforts.
“Every business is a technology business, but you need the right skills and workflows for success.”
As established organizations race to keep up with disruptive platform businesses, many are facing a stark reality: their skills shortage and ways of working are holding them back.
The technology landscape is changing rapidly, so it’s vital to have talent that is multilingual in coding and committed to continuous learning. But many organizations find themselves grappling with the need to invest in skills that can drive change, whilst retaining those that ensure the delivery of existing business-critical technology and services.
“To survive, organizations must democratize and decentralize”
The lack of decentralization and equal distribution of data is creating a laggard culture, when companies are frantically trying to digitally transform and adapt.
Distributing the right insights and data within the business can help the whole organization move forward at speed, which can help to empower teams and drive value. But to be sustainable, it needs to be backed up with new decentralized infrastructure, processes and culture.
“When faced with changing customer expectations, you must be aggressive… or else be at risk.”
An always-on customer culture, which demands fast and seamless services, has never been more prevalent than it is today. The need to bring the physical world to the digital – creating responsive, memorable and competitive experiences, faster – will only grow further.
The laggards who ignore the need to continuously evolve will quickly become the disrupted, face irrelevance and endanger the future of their business. The choice for every organizations is now: be aggressive or be at risk.
