Frequently Asked Questions
Why do digital transformations fail?
There are several issues, but the three most common are:
- The scope is too broad, with no collective understanding of what it will deliver. The transformation will always fail as there is no baseline to measure it against and no accepted moment of completion.
- Complexities of migration and challenges of legacy IT are underestimated.
- Poor communication and stakeholder engagement.
Why is my digital transformation taking so long?
Usually, one of three reasons:
- You’ve underestimated the challenges of your legacy IT and data migration.
- You’re trying to complete the transformation with just your existing IT team.
- The project is too complex, and you haven’t broken it into smaller, well-defined elements.
How do I get my business case approved by the board?
To get your business case approved, align it to your business strategy, or if this is not clear align it to risk registers, corporate themes or departmental goals.
- Be clear on what the project will deliver and what it will achieve including what will happen if you don’t go ahead with it.
- Create baseline KPIs to measure your success, even simple ones will show you the progress you make when you implement your change.
- A clear picture of the financial implementation and ongoing costs
- Socialise with your executive in advance to get their buy-in. A business case becomes much harder to reject if everyone has contributed.
How do I start my digital transformation?
Getting started with your digital transformation is all about people rather than technology.
- Effective communication is a vital component of any successful team. When members are able to understand one another’s concerns, they can work together more effectively toward achieving shared goals. Achieving this level doesn’t happen overnight but it does require putting forth effort into understanding what your employees want so that everyone feels included in decisions impacting their own workplace environment
- Digital transformation requires executives, managers and frontline employers to work together to rethink how each aspect of the business should operate.
