Digital Transformation Strategy: Business Before Technology

A Methodical Approach to Digital Transformation Strategy

Digital transformation is NOT an unintentionally positive result of something you did.

Digital transformation is NOT the latest quick fix to respond to some new external crisis.

Digital transformation is NOT adding incremental, low-hanging features to an existing product or cool new technology looking for a problem to solve.

Digital transformation is NEVER accomplished solely by buying or coding new technologies, nor is coding sufficient to prove that transformation is happening.

The path to digital transformation IS paved with a strong training plan that teaches your team how to prepare for the next competition.
