Digital DivinersJacky Carter, Group Digital Engagement Director, shared her opinion on the digital state in the new year. She believes that 2016 will the year of “The Digital Diviners”. Why Diviners?  Because they need to be visionary, to see the future and anticipate change.


1. Influencers: Influencing is a crucial skill for anyone with aspirations to lead an organization or to be part of it through a digital transformation. Being able to understand and relate to a business and what the opportunities are, seek out the problems that need to be solved, build an effective relationship with the tech (DevOps) delivery team and having broad enough shoulders to withstand failure – all the while taking the senior management with you on the journey.

2. Customer experience: A CX guru has the capability to transform an organization’s relationship with its customers. Understanding what they want, how they would best like to interact, what their optimum journey would be and putting it into practice are the “must have” talents for 2016. Organizations that are lucky enough to have this talent in-house are at an advantage – as long as the right influencers are listening to them.

3. Data translators: People with the skill to find you the right data and make it meaningful. What she refers to is beyond analysis and even insights, the skills that enable businesses to understand and practically use the output from the story that their data reveals to produce measurable results that improve profitability.

What skills do you have that are in-demand? 80% of employers plan to hire in the next three to six months. Find out how to put your best foot forward to help you land a top tech project.
