The aim of the DRI (Digital Readiness Institute) is to help leaders and their people thrive in the digital age. To this end the DRI comprises two learning programmes, one for leaders (Business Transformation Programme)) and one for the staff (Personal Transformation Programme). The Founder of the DRI is Ade McCormack, is often referred to as a near futurist. He has a ‘bits to boardroom’ perspective on how organisations need to change to avoid disruption. He is a former technologist who is now focused on helping organisations and individuals thrive in the post-industrial world.
Organisations built in the industrial era are not designed to cope with the increasing uncertainty and volatility of the digital age. Most business leaders are starting to realise that, but few are taking action.
DRI believe this is because they do not understand the extent of the changes taking place. In some cases, they have been misinformed on how they need to transform. They believe that sprinkling emerging technologies across their ‘factory’ model is adequate preparation to thrive in the digital age. They conflate digitalisation with digital transformation.
In any case, many leaders are not acting, perhaps hoping that digital disruption will not hit their organisation; at least not under their watch. The staff too are naturally wondering what the future holds for them, now that the robots and ‘algos’ have arrived. Anxiety at all levels of the organisation is causing cognitive drainage. So not only is the organisation unprepared for disruption, it’s capacity to prepare for it is eroding.
The DRI was created to address this existential reality. It recognises that organisations with something to lose do not want to risk losing it. So we have created an approach that both protects your organisation’s existing assets and eliminates the corrosive corporate anxiety, whilst preparing it to thrive under the most volatile and unknowable future.
Best of all, to achieve this the DRI draws upon our natural human tendencies. Tendencies that have served us well over many millennia. This approach has been tested extensively in the harshest of environments.
The service is web-based, but the learning modules can be downloaded. So your team can access the service from wherever it suits them. Each programme comprises a number of courses. Each course comprises a number of micro-learning modules of two to ten minutes duration. Each course includes quizzes to check understanding. Each module includes an assignment that will turn the learning into real value.
