Digital transformation, innovation, and culture - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

The “digital” buzzword is to today's business world what “internet” was in the 1990s. And "digital transformation" covers a wide range of new (but different) technologies now in the same way that "the internet" once did, encompassing innovations such as big data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and robotic process re-engineering. Yet it is a deceptive half-truth to assume that the deployment of bleeding-edge technology is all that is needed for digital success.

Sub-Saharan Africa executive compensation particularities, “Fin24.com” - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Johannesburg, South Africa – “In the Sub-Saharan Africa talent market, job titles and therefore pay scales mean very little – i.e. a Vice President in one country could be a senior manager or a Director in another. Typically companies have simply been grateful that they can get talent to relocate to some of the countries where they operate in subsidiaries, so now they find themselves with confused pay scales. They find their calculations to be driven by what the markets dictate rather than what their organic pay scale specifies for corresponding positions elsewhere in the world,” explains Martin Pike, Managing Director of Sub-Saharan Africa region at Pedersen & Partners.
