Brace Yourself For The 2016 Digital Re-Org. – Forrester

Our key findings from the survey are:

  • Headcount Growth Plateaus As Operating Model Shifts. Digital headcount growth has plateaued, with teams averaging 94 people, down from 95 in 2014 and 103 in 2013. 
  • Technology Skills Aren’t The Biggest Headache Anymore. Technology skills are still hard to find, but roles like analytics and product management are increasingly vital, and much harder to source. 
  • Reorganizations Loom. The drive for customer obsession and better cross-functional collaboration will necessitate fundamental reorganizations that challenge old product and channel structures. Progressive digital teams will initiate these discussions in their firms in 2016.
