Digital transformation is a moving target. How do you stay ahead of change? Where should you invest your efforts? To stay relevant in the future, you need to take mindful and targeted action today.
Within our own company, and in helping organizations from small businesses to global enterprises, we’ve found four key areas to focus on for a successful digital transformation strategy.
Create a digital experience for your customers
The pandemic has accelerated the move to all-digital customer experiences. Telehealth and online grocery shopping have exploded, and retail spaces have become fewer and smaller. How will these trends shape your customers’ experience?
Seek technological efficiencies
Your workforce, customer base, and executive leadership are more mobile and virtual than ever. Are you prepared to capitalize on new opportunities to use digital solutions, AI, automation, and the cloud to increase operational efficiency across the organization?
Get comfortable with failing fast
One key to thriving through crisis (and beyond) is the ability to fail – and fail quickly. How well can you recognize and learn from your failures? Know what you can do to move on and accelerate your digital transformation.
Focus on risk management and privacy protection
To mitigate risk in digital transformation, careful planning is critical. You need to understand how new technology will interface with core systems, evaluate third-party risk, and prioritize data security.
Across industries, the pandemic has compressed decades of digital transformation into a moment. From mass adoption of work from home, online banking, and virtual consultations to lower demand for in-person experiences, industries have to adapt, providing the all-digital, all-mobile work, operational, and customer experiences of the future.
The days of checking accounts and physical branches are numbered. How are you delivering the all-digital, all-mobile bank of the future?
The mass adoption of telehealth has unbound patient care from geographic borders. Paper surveys are being replaced with online “star” ratings for doctors and hospitals, with major effects for both patients and providers.
Technology, media, and telecommunications
After a rush of pre-pandemic M&A activity, technology, media, and telecom businesses are integrating acquisitions and remaking operations to emerge stronger and smarter.
From total shutdown to online ordering to new delivery and pickup operations, retailers have scrambled to stay afloat – and to put virtual customers at the center of everything they do.
