When digital management evolution can be negative
Nowadays, companies feel obliged to keep up with the digital evolution and most importantly, to follow the digital management evolution. It means that they have to use digital tools in order to improve their communication, their productivity, their efficiency. They need to be more competitive and to generate growth.
Despite all the positive aspects of digitizing businesses, we can’t put aside the negative aspects that we can see. Digital offers a wide range of services.
It is not always very easy to use digital tools for those who are not used to it (those who are not rom generation X or Y). They see this digitalisation as a brake : they do not have a perfect understanding and are not comfortable with the idea of working with these brand new things. In addition, digitalization represents an investment for businesses even if it is a short-term decision.
Digitalization can limit human relationships and outrage the atmosphere in business.
Companies must be able to adapt themselves easily to new working methods. Digitalization must lead companies to be able to manage « faster and more quantitative information flows, the digitalisation of documentation, the security of information, as well as the communication and processing of data. » They need to be vigilant about their offers because of an information rate and high transparency that is accessible to the largest numbers.
