Digital transformation gets a lot of mindshare these days. But what about people transformation?
There’s no question that advanced technology, automation, and data and analytics can deliver real results in just about every industry today. And, increasingly, these digital capabilities are no longer aspirational—they are must-have table-stakes for doing business.
But without the right talent to put them to work, all of those dynamic new tech capabilities risk being a lot of high-stakes digital opportunities that are simply left on the table.
This is especially true in the audit field, where the rise of digital-powered enhancements is also putting a spotlight on the need to transform talent for an industry in which personal relationships and trust have always been paramount.
