In 2017, I spoke with Valor Econômico about how we must have several skills to thrive in the digital environment.
This was six years ago, and yet, very current, for many reasons:
Interconnectedness of Disciplines: In the digital
world, various disciplines like marketing, design, development, data analysis, and cybersecurity are interconnected. A multidisciplinary professional can bridge gaps between these areas, fostering collaboration and innovation.
User-Centric Focus: Successful digital projects prioritize user experience and customer satisfaction. Multidisciplinary professionals can bring diverse perspectives to create user-centered solutions that consider design, functionality, and usability.
Problem Solving: Complex digital challenges often require a multifaceted approach. Multidisciplinary professionals can draw from their diverse skill sets to tackle complex problems from different angles, leading to more effective solutions.
Innovation: Multidisciplinary teams foster innovation by bringing together individuals with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. This diversity can lead to creative solutions and new ideas that wouldn't be possible within a single discipline.
Risk Mitigation: In the digital world, security and privacy are paramount. Multidisciplinary professionals can help identify and address potential risks from different angles, protecting digital assets and data.
Data-Driven Decision-Making: Data plays a crucial role in the digital landscape. But data alone is not transformational. Skilled professionals will know how to ask the right questions, interpret the results, and drive action.
Organizations that leverage multidisciplinary teams and professionals gain a competitive advantage by being more adaptable, innovative, and responsive to market changes.
Great storytellers make excellent multidisciplinary professionals, as they have the unique ability to bring many concepts and ideas together in a compelling way. Focus on improving your storytelling skills and see the results!
