Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology to transform services or businesses, through replacing non-digital or manual processes with digital processes or replacing older digital technology with newer digital technology. Digital solutions may enable – in addition to efficiency via automation – new types of innovation and creativity, rather than simply enhancing and supporting traditional methods.

Why do we need a Digital and Innovation Board?

  • Digital and Innovation projects often fail to achieve their objectives

  • Support project initiation, planning, execution and completion

  • Wider awareness of our digital requirements and innovative solutions

  • Need broad agreement and buy-in on ‘strategic’ projects

  • Help understand wider opportunities and key dependencies

  • Provide clear & transparent decision making on priorities

The Board should increase the likelihood of the organisation to deliver projects on time and within budget successfully.
Boards can play a pivotal role to ensure that the company is making the best use of their resources and, actually, working on the projects that add most value.
