Digital Enterprise Readiness Framework
The Institute has developed an analytical Model that will objectively measure the “Readiness” of an organization’s ability to change. We refer to this model as the Four Dimensions of Digital Readiness.
Does your organization have a stable base to operate from?
How quickly can your organization react to change?
How well does your organization anticipate change?
How receptive is your organization/people to implementing change?
The model was developed using data gathered over the past decade of working with companies undergoing change and collected as part of multiple research projects. Our Chief Scientist, Dr. Frank Granito, combined this data with other academic studies to develop our current model.
What Makes the Institute's Framework Unique?
Most Assessments focus on a specific aspect of the change:
- Implementing Digital Technologies such as Public Cloud, Big Data, or Predictive Analysis
- Implementing Digital Practices, such as Agile, Lean, or DevOps
- Improving Operational performance by using Automation or AI
- Changing Organizational Structure by adding a Chief Digital Officer
Our focus is the Readiness of Your Organization to handle the stress of the transition.
|Findings and recommendations are produced by a model that is based on a decade of experience combined with Best Practices and academic research. Results from typical assessments vary based on the experience and expertise of the assessment team.|
|Information is gathered from the entire organization, not just a selective sample chosen by Management or the assessment team.|
|Our 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.
There is case study evidence of the success of companies for each of the dimensions:
- Many business sectors including Banking, Manufacturing, and Automotive recommend “implementation of the right set of organizational capabilities are critical requirements” for Digital Transformation. Readiness is having the right amount of foundational organizational processes and capabilities
- British Telecom and companies in the European Union learned to place “the emphasis on business issues such as how will my business processes change.” Readiness is having the Organizational Agility to rapidly alter the business in response to a changing digital environment
- NHS England found that having a “user council set up to involve external stakeholders in activity” was a key success factor to Digital Transformation. Readiness is the Strategic Agility that comes from knowing and involving your customers
- A McKinsey study of Digital culture shows companies like GE and Nordstrom realized “In our experience, executives who wait for organizational cultures to change organically will move too slowly as digital penetration grows.” Readiness is a Disruptive culture whose Senior Leaders are advocates and role models.
