In order to implement the digital transformation optimally, you must pay particular attention to the following five points:
1. Digitalization is a matter for the boss: without the support of management, the technological upheaval cannot take place. Because digitization potentially affects every corner of the company and leads to fundamental changes in strategy development.
2. Focus on customer-centricity and customer experience: digital transformation offers your company the best opportunity to become a fully customer-centric organization. It enables you to align all relevant components with the customer. The approach should always benefit your customers first and foremost, less your products.
3. The "roadmap" to digital transformation: Develop a plan in advance at which points you want to digitize your company and how and where it will help you and your customers.
4. Put it through its paces: Once you have completed the first implementation phase, test the new functionalities thoroughly before going "live". There is hardly anything that annoys customers faster than non-functioning processes - whether analog or digital.
5. External and internal specialists: In order to put the above-mentioned points into practice, it is advisable to put together a team to make your work easier on the way to a digitalized company. For this purpose, choose employees from your own company who may already have special knowledge or who will later work with the new technologies on a daily basis. Make sure you also bring in external expert knowledge. Digital specialists know best what you need to do to get started quickly and effectively in the digital future.
