Implementing an organizationwide digital transformation is difficult enough on its own; adding an incomplete or improperly staffed team to the mix will only create more challenges.

The most effective digital transformations, therefore, include a robust pipeline of digital talent, according to the Harvard Business Review, one that does not require prohibitively high costs to recruit or train, but instead focuses on strategic hiring practices beyond the traditional search for specialized digital experts of the highest pedigree.

Instead, the most successful organizations hire workers with the ability to develop necessary skills, and build an environment to foster that development. Here are four ways to do so, according to HBR:

1. Look for potential, not credentials.

2. Value soft skills as much as technical skills.

3. Think about teams, not individuals.

4. Incentivize employees to grow.
