Five Considerations for your Digital Tools Strategy
The most important things to consider before you invest
1. Get a leader
Finding the right person to lead is the most important part of building a digital business tools strategy. Much depends on company culture, structure and priorities. Some companies place leadership with the founder/CEO, some pass the role onto an appointed person. Either way, the leader’s influence will need the full buy-in from each transformation and training consultant in order to make effective changes.
Transformation and training companies with an existing business tool strategy might need to review the tool’s potential threats and opportunities. It’s important to decide if it’s time to move on with an outdated offering or adjust what is already in place.
Creating a digital business tools strategy involves considering how new technology will compliment and grow current business. If you are already lagging behind in this area, the pressure can mount to rush into commitments without looking at how it will fit into current plans. Staying measured, you can avoid wasting resources on mis-aligned projects.
4. Future Proof
A digital business tools strategy should be a foundation stone of growth for you and your customers. It gives a transformation and training company scope to reinvent itself and keep up technology and customer expectations. You can be a visionary in the industry and bring a disruptive and challenging digital edge.
Consider how your transformation and training content currently rolls out and determine which tools might benefit your customers. How could your tools tie into your customer's CRM to unite them with your offering in the months and years ahead?
