Taking Control of Digital Transformation: The Six Dimensions of Digital Maturity

Determining how far along an organization is on the path to digital maturity requires an inward look at different areas of the organization and an in-depth analysis of the digital strategy already in place – if any. With 55% of start-ups having adopted a digital business strategy from inception, it’s fair to say that focusing on the digital maturity of the organization is a smart move.

1. HR – Determine who in the organization will be working on the new digital initiative, who will benefit the most from its implementation and what staff issues you might encounter in the process.

2. Technology Resources – Assess the organizations current technological resources and digital content to determine if the right technologies, rules and processes are in place to make the digital transformation a measurable success.

3. Data Strategy – Determine how the organization currently collects, stores, manages and uses collected data.

4. Content Strategy – Develop a framework which uniformly governs how data is created, managed, delivered, shared, stored and renewed by inventorying current content and storage methods, reviewing the organizations content development process, measuring the quality of current content and reviewing the evaluation and storage process.

5. Channel Strategy – Determine what channels the organization employs to make use of digital content (marketing, transaction-enabling and distribution channels), how the organization approaches each channel, how these efforts are funded and how performance is evaluated.

6. Social Business Strategy – How has the organization leveraged social media capabilities to enhance engagement between employees, community and customers while determining how social media is utilized as a whole, who is making use of it effectively and how it is improving customer experience.
