In this post, we will be outlining how this DX toolkit works. Also, we will be outlining what a digital transformation strategy means. Lastly, we will be outlining the four tools that comprise this DX toolkit.
What A Digital Transformation Strategy Is?
Each organization, whether in government or in the business industry, has goals, vision, and purpose. These do vary depending on the needs and scope of work of an organization.
A digital transformation strategy aims to give voice to those goals, vision, and purpose. It executes the action to deliver the end goal.
Neglecting digital transformation strategy is like “implementing just any technology, just in case it may work”. It can be likened to striking the air or running hard and fast on a mere treadmill. You have been exerting the exact effort, but with no definite goal or destination.
By all means, giving careful thought to developing a good digital transformation strategy can do more than the planning stage. Strategies can help maximize the opportunities out of an investment. Thus, better deliver results- more effectively and more efficiently.
