Digital transformation is quite possibly the most overused – and at the same time misunderstood—buzzword that’s hit the street in decades. Many organizations feel overwhelmed by not only defining the term, but also by understanding and embracing the numerous tasks and technologies associated with it.
In order to help, I’ve created a short, but comprehensive insider’s guide to break down digital transformation into manageable pieces.
In the first chapter, I explain the powerful, combustive nature of digital transformation, and highlight the critical elements to consider. You will learn how to harness the power, and what factors will impact your success (or lack thereof).
Next I dive into the six essential tools needed to manage and optimize a digital transformation. By the end of that chapter you’ll have a solid grasp of what each of these tools delivers, and how – when used properly – they can help ensure strategy linkage and business level governance.
Lastly, I tie it all together by explaining how to use these tools, or essentially what methodologies are needed to successfully apply your toolkit. Measure twice, cut once is great advice for a carpenter, and there are some analogs for individuals charged with executing successful transformations. I walk you through the steps and explain where to begin based on your organization’s progress along the transformation maturity continuum.
Digital transformation is complex, but with the right understanding of its elements, the necessary tools, and the proper blueprint, you can harness the power and reap the rewards.
