Data and technology heavily influence the way organizations operate. New companies with new digital business models are changing the market at a rapid speed. Entire ecosystems are transforming. Incumbents are forced to think about the way they will take advantage of these digital developments. A clear and practicable digital agenda that is supported by the organization’s leadership is essential to any digital transformation.
For Anderson MacGyver ‘practicable’ implies that the strategy’s impact on the organization, as well as its processes, systems and partners has been assessed. We know that while working on a digital future, it is often necessary to also rethink the current processes and systems (the ‘core’). We therefore develop the digital agenda to execute the strategy through various approaches. Below we describe a selection of our key approaches.
Determine your digital agenda
We start the journey by determining the digital agenda based on your business or digital strategy. We analyse your context and business, and explore relevant issues. Next we challenge and validate your business directives and technology principles. By doing so we can identify scenarios and draft a digital agenda in alignment with your business and technology.
Assess your data and tech capabilities
To substantiate your digital agenda, we assess your data and tech capabilities. We use a modular approach, choosing between five areas of interest that can be in scope: Strategic Fit, Technology, Data set, Costs, and Organization. For the last two, we are able to give bandwidths with regards to tech and data costs (turnover and run) and organization size (for managing demand and supply).
Define your technology landscape
We help you define a direction of your technology landscape. We start by clarifying expectations, the planning and the agreed upon approach. We use interviews and workshops to get a common understanding of the context and current situation. Together we then develop the future state of your technology landscape, including a go-to-market strategy, roadmap and financial implications.
Justify your strategic program
Implementing your digital agenda is a challenging task, with which we can help. First we justify the strategic program for execution of your digital agenda. After agreeing on the approach, we analyse relevant documentation and conduct interviews. We validate and organize the solution scenarios and set up the change program. Finally, we decide on the transformation roadmap and agree upon key risks and success factors.
