An effective Digital Strategy
Why is a digital strategy important for my business?
A credible digital strategy is fundamental to everything we do at Deep Blue Sky. It ensures that we provide our clients value for money and once it’s in place everyone can be confident that the software we build is either generating growth or reducing risk and waste.
Our client’s digital strategies play such an important part in our ability to perform that these days we work hand in glove with our clients to build or refine their strategy before we do almost anything else – and we continue to work together to refine their digital strategy for years to come.
We also like to share - so this series of articles describes our digital strategy template and how to start building a strategy for your company’s future.
The foundations of a good Digital Strategy
What do we cover in our Digital Strategy - “How to” Series?
In this series we cover our “Five Pillars of an Effective Digital Strategy” which are as follows:
Will your digital strategy weather unexpected disruption?
Whole industries can be shaken when another player enters the market who thinks entirely differently. We call these “disruptors”. How ready are you to survive disruption in your sector?
Is your digital strategy truly customer focused?
Customers’ expectations of you are changing rapidly and they will walk away if you’re not able to meet their needs. Are you doing everything you need to be doing to properly engage your customers?
Does your digital strategy belong to the whole organisation?
Engage your team correctly and they will accelerate your growth immeasurably. Get it wrong and they will leave, setting you back each time. Are you empowering your staff to grow your business?
Does your digital strategy centre around waste & risk reduction?
Most waste, risk and opportunity for productivity improvements come from automation of some kind. Automation also brings untold insight and clarity. Are you doing enough?
Does your digital strategy look ahead to new opportunities?
The changes in the technology landscape will only continue to accelerate. Are you ready to take advantage of emerging tech? You can be sure your competitors are.
