The Digital Transformation Readiness Tool (DTRT) a cloud-based, fully automated tool designed around the Institute’s Readiness Framework. This state-of-the-art tool is set to revolutionize how organizations embark on and navigate their digital transformation journeys. 

What is Business Readiness?

Using a sports analogy, teams are usually divided into groups: offense, defense, and special teams. Each group has a specific purpose. The purpose of the offense is to score. In business terms, your purpose is to deliver service without interruption and according to quality standards. The purpose of the defense is to prevent the opposition from scoring. In business, you need to quickly react to what your competition is doing to prevent them from gaining the advantage. Special Teams all have different functions, but the key is knowing when to use them. In business, you need to read the market to know when to change the direction you are going. And there is something intangible called “Team Spirit” – a willingness to do what is necessary even if that means stepping out of their normal role, like a member of defense scoring.

These four concepts are the basis of the Digital Readiness Framework. You understand why each of those concepts is important to a sports team, now let’s apply them to your business.

Operational Sustainability (Offense)

A sustainable operation is the backbone of any transformation, providing stability and resilience.

Organizational Agility (Defense)

Organization that can rapidly adapt provides a competitive edge and prevents them from falling behind those that can swiftly adjust to new market realities.

Strategic Agility (Special Teams)

Strategic agility enables organizations to stay ahead of the competition by recognizing and seizing opportunities faster.

Disruptive Culture (Team Spirit)

A culture that fosters innovation/adaptability, rapidly responds to market changes, and identifies new opportunities; directly translates to growth, sustainability, and an enhanced return on investment.

Benefits of the Tool

The Digital Transformation Readiness Tool helps businesses make sound decisions about their programs for digital transformation. It assesses and measures an organization’s Readiness to execute and sustain a digital transformation effort. Understanding the benefits of the tool will help you make an informed choice. Here are the following key reasons why it must be part of your toolkit:

Vendor Agnostic

A key differentiator for the Digital Readiness Transformation Tool is that it not self-serving. Often any insight study that is conducted by a third party, whether a consultant or an automated assessment, will invariably lead to their solution or service.

Recommendations are not aligned with a specific vendor solution. The Institute’s Framework integrates seamlessly with other technology, process frameworks, methodologies, or approaches that you are already using. The approach of the Institute is to use objective data driven analysis that allows for reliable study of the data and industry accepted recommendation.

Analytic Approach (not Subjective)

The Digital Readiness Transformation Tool relies upon objective data and statistics to drive the analytic approach. Findings and recommendations are produced by a validated analytical model. Results from other assessments can be subjective and may vary based on the experience and expertise of the assessment team.

Method is Inclusive (not Selective)

The Tool gathers input from your entire organization instead of a selected few. Getting information from the employees of an organization across all teams in a systematic way reduces the bias that may be introduced when working with smaller groups. Information is gathered from the entire organization, not just a selective sample chosen by Management or the assessment team.

Provides Focused Recommendations

The tool is developed from the Digital Readiness Framework provides insights into the areas that require improvement. The focused recommendations are based on the analyzed results which will help your organization prepare for Transformation. All recommendations are based on the information collected anonymously from your organization. Divided into Operational Sustainability, Organizational Agility, Strategic Agility and Disruptive Culture, the detailed report provides recommended improvements tailored to your organization.

Value for Your Business

All these benefits mentioned will enable better decision-making, reduced risk, and improved outcomes for your business. Avoid being one of the 70% of organizations that fail. Using an established framework that was created from over a decade of research and industry experience of the Institute for Digital Transformation will allow your organization to assess its state of readiness and make your transformation a success.

As a Business Executive, Why You Should Be Interested

Objective and Unbiased Perspective

External tools and assessments provide an unbiased viewpoint, free from internal politics or preconceptions. This objective perspective is crucial in accurately assessing a situation, identifying issues, and recommending changes. It helps in making decisions based on data and facts rather than internal biases or conflicts of interest. This is crucial for gaining trust throughout your organization, especially when you are about to embark on a significant transformation journey.

Catalyst for Change
