As it turns out the blockers are not necessarily the more aged and the younger ones are often not the best facilitators. The key to a great (digital) transformation journey is bringing together different generations by leveraging the (business) knowledge of the more experienced, and providing guidance to the fresh look and up-to-date (digital) skills of the more recent joiners. Also, writing-off or sidelining those that are 50+ years young in this process can be a unforgiving mistake, when not only their input is precious, but mostly their buy-in (with a large part of senior management being part of this age group) is vital to assure enthusiasm throughout the organisation. The 50+ need to be part of the team that leads, guides, coaches and inspires on the bumpy road of (digital) transformation.
