Digitization is disrupting every business and is spreading like a wild fire across every sector such as Banking, Financial Services, Insurance, Retail, and Manufacturing.
Digital Transformation does not happen overnight. It is a continuous process. That is why it is very hard to plan too far ahead in a digital transformation program. The technology is evolving so rapidly that your plans will certainly change.
How do you measure return on digital transformation in order to make the timely course correction and improve its success rate? It is even more important that people who will measure the progress know the actual meaning of digital and customer behavior. You will be surprised to know that how many employees/leaders take the customer journey themselves – buying an online policy on their own website, purchasing a merchandise or calling their own customer center to complain.
One of the ways is to break the long term plan into small doable projects with specific KPI’s. These should not last more than six months.
While traditional metrics of revenue, costs, customer satisfaction should be measured, companies should move beyond these quarterly revenue and margin guidance as they keep pulling them back to short term tactical focus. The new metrics have to be added to get the right control and visibility of progress.
Some of the new metrics which can be considered are:
·Rate of new apps and APIs to offer new products/services inside and outside the company
Always keep these metrics simple and measure right things and celebrate even the small successes so employees are motivated.
A digital transformation is a bigculture changeso there is plenty of fear which leads to resistance. Such inertia has to be changed with clear communication, as to why it is needed to change and what benefits it will bring to each department and employee.
A lack of urgency is the greatest obstacle businesses face when considering the value of digital transformation.Proper planning is important but more than that execution as per the KPIs you select, is what take you through.
