Develop Practical Digital Strategies with ThinkDigital™
Managing the shift to business-driven IT
What has happened is that the integration of technology into the modern economy has often created a sense that IT is an end unto itself, rather than a means of achieving business goals. That has led to a measurable disconnect in how technology staff and management see their work in relation to their company’s overall strategy; with many information technology service management (ITSM) professionals having a clear understanding of their company’s strategy, but only a few believing that the work they do is aligned with that strategy.
That lack of coordination can prove costly to any business if allowed to continue unchecked. Digital technologies should be seen as an integral element and a strategic enabler to delivering specific organisational goals.
ThinkDigital™ - shaping your digital future
It is a structured framework, which is nonetheless highly collaborative and inclusive. We use a rapid, time-boxed, flexible process that balances the need for rigor with the wisdom of doing just enough and doing it quickly.
Working with your senior people, our consultants use a set of Arrk proprietary methods based upon proven and visual design thinking, as well as lean tools and techniques. Collaborative, inclusive and feedback driven, it’s workshop oriented to rapidly create shared understanding between all participants.
The Playback - A Digital Roadmap Based on Business Value
Working together we help identify key dependencies and consider aspirational timescales and milestones, whilst defining products, services, and interfaces that need to be digitised – culminating in an agreed prioritised digital roadmap based on business value and outcome modelling of the ‘best few’.
Whilst having standalone value, the outcomes from ThinkDigital™ have been designed to dovetail seamlessly into our Architecture and Design engagement services.
