Digital Transformation: Ways to Succeed

If you aren’t taking advantage of modern-day digital technologies, especially during this uncertain and extended remote working era, you will undoubtedly miss a potential competitive edge. According to Forrester Research, nearly 56% of IT decision-makers claim that their digital transformation strategy is already underway. To better understand what works and what doesn’t, Stephanie Overby, in this article at The Enterprisers Project, shares some clear do’s and don’ts that IT leaders must follow to succeed in the digital transformation journey.

The Do’s and Don’ts

DO Have Strategic Plans

Focus on the area where you will begin the transformation and prove that your process improvement plan will work. Include every single detail in your case. Calculate the expected ROI. Pick the right software and the right partner for change. Remember, digital transformation is an ongoing process, and it is essential to find the right software vendor who walks you through each step.

DO Find A Change Manager

An experienced change manager will bring a structured approach to your digital transformation effort. The change managers must be great communicators who can promote the digital transformation initiatives internally. The change managers must also be able to help address concerns less formally.

DO Maintain Focus

Once you begin the digital transformation, don’t get sidetracked by other projects. Remain focused until you achieve your organizational goals. In this process, you must also ensure not to let projects get derailed.

DON’T Forget Your Goals

Set short-term and long-term goals. As technology evolves continuously, you must adapt and improve along the way. You must set short-term goals to recognize the progress you are making. Boost employee morale and keep your team in a positive spirit by recognizing and rewarding everyone’s achievements.

DON’T Micromanage

“The need for self-regulating teams with good collaboration and communication skills is paramount right now,” says Stephanie. Empower your team and employees to take the difficult decisions with remote contact, when needed. Allow your high-performing employees to take care of their health and mental well-being.
