Change is not a quick fix, nor is it a temporary solution. For change to be effective, it must be an integral part of a long-term business strategy and tied to quantifiable results. Companies must communicate with employees and provide the resources they need to adapt new technologies. Long-term change is sustained by employee buy-in, with the help of change agents and support from all managerial levels. In the new era of oil and gas, companies must stay focused on optimizing their business and executing projects. Ultimately, the industry will reward individuals and companies that embrace digital transformation.
