Plotting Your Digital Roadmap
Technology is not a one-size fits all for companies. It’s as diverse as your business brand and changes on every day that ends in a Y. Too often businesses see “technology” and immediately thousands of dollar signs pop into mind.
That’s simply not the case when looking at a digital roadmap.
A digital roadmap is an overview that lays out what your business wants to achieve and how digital initiatives can help you get there. It incorporates short- and long-term goals that are achievable with realistic action plans.
Your digital roadmap isn’t a straight line. COVID taught all of us that we need to be able to pivot at a moment’s notice. That’s why you need this document. It’s a living, breathing entity that will require your company to change and evolve with your customer needs.
When you’re drawing the map, where better to gather input than from within your own company. You’re might be the captain charting the course, but you need help from the crew who know where the buttons are, speed bumps to avoid, and how to refuel along the way.
Simple rules of thumb when creating your roadmap include:
Flexibility – the goals and action plans are going to change
Collaboration – include input from employees, customers, vendors
Goal-Setting – create ambitious and achievable milestones
