What is a digital transformation assessment?

The roadmap for your digital transformation journey...

Person walking on a map

If your business’s systems are all working and your operations are ticking along nicely, BUT you’re still thinking there must be a way to become more efficient or to better utilise technology, then it’s likely you’re looking for a digital transformation.

 However, you’re not alone if you have “analysis paralysis”… where you know you need change but you don’t know what changes to make, when, and what resources you need. That’s where a Digital Transformation expert can help you identify and prioritise activities to improve your organisation’s digital maturity over time – with a roadmap to your digital transformation success.

 The starting point is to undertake a Digital Transformation Assessment.

 A Digital Transformation Assessment is a series of sessions we hold with you to understand your business, your goals, and your capabilities. We gain a clear understanding of your current state and your digital capabilities, and we can highlight any weaknesses and gaps.

The immediate outcome is a comprehensive Digital Action Plan, but the benefits for your business are impactful and ongoing:

  • Strategic Alignment: Align digital initiatives with strategic goals. 

  • Prioritisation: Allocate resources effectively

  • Informed Decision-Making: Base decisions on data-driven insights. 

  • Operational Efficiency: Streamline processes and reduce costs. 

  • Competitive Advantage: Stay ahead with effective tech adoption. 

  • Risk Mitigation: Address cybersecurity and compliance risks. 

  • Employee Engagement: Involve and engage employees. 

  • Measurable Progress: Track the impact and progress. 

  • Resource Allocation: Efficiently allocate budget and personnel. 

  • Scalability and Growth: Plan for future growth. 

  • Vendor Selection: Choose the right technology partners. 

  • Customer Satisfaction: Enhance customer experiences and loyalty. 


 1.      Preliminary assessment and orientation

This session is a quick introduction to digital transformation concepts, before we start to evaluate your business’s capabilities, digital maturity and technology readiness. We aim to pinpoint your business’s technology priorities here.

2.      Secondary assessment

At this session we evaluate your digital maturity across seven critical areas to gain a Digital Maturity Score. This score helps determine your business’s current state and envision an ideal future state for each area.

3.      Internal analysis

Our team will then develop a Digital Transformation Action Plan for alignment and improvement within your business. It will list action steps with recommendations to achieve outcomes, and offer a clear roadmap for identifying essential projects (with timelines).

 4.      Finetuning the Action Plan

Here we will finalise your roadmap by working with you and your team on potential action items, opportunities, challenges and requirements to ensure your future digital transformation initiatives are successful. You’ll receive a final version of your roadmap (the Digital Transformation Action Plan).
