Focusing on skills in digital innovation is crucial, especially when the government is trying to promote Thailand 4.0 which requires considerable skills in digital innovation to move the country forward. Therefore, preparing staffs in the future needs to correspond with digital technology professionals and general others who have digital skills in high level or known as digital citizen.
Therefore, organization needs to improve specific skills in digital innovation for its staffs before it is completely changed into digital organization. Some potential technologies have to be focused such as censor system or IoT to support business capacity in the organization by changing operational process into automatic one and adding new income channel through increased digital products and services.
However, human resources who can improve such technology skills are limited in the organization. In this aspect, organization needs to know whether it should invest in skill development to whom and in which skills in order to solve the lack of skillful resources.
From these challenges, most of organizations start to realize the importance of digital technology innovation in business which has been increasing and to understand that renovating organization into digital organization has to be an important agenda in overall business strategy. Considering what, when, and how organization needs to be changed to be able to compete with others is quite challenging for organization. Although most organizations have realized the importance of changing organization into digital organization, only some of them can obviously establish strategy in changing into digital organization.
Therefore, organization needs to prepare human resources to have necessary skills in information technology to change the organization into digital organization and improve competitive ability in digital world.
