A digital strategy offers the more likely to succeed in achieving digital transformation. However, many professionals balk at creating a strategy or they create a strategy that is too abstract or inflexible.
To help organisations with their digital strategy, TIMAF developed the digital strategy game that allows you to create a digital strategy in 12 steps. You can apply this game directly in a workshop with colleagues, customers and suppliers.
Digital strategy game
The TIMAF Digital Strategy Game can be used in a workshop to create a digital strategy with your team.
It leads you to a digital strategy in 12 steps. In the workshop, you answer each question as a team.
1. What are your organisation's goals?
2. What stands in the way of achieving the goal?
3. What needs to improve in order to achieve the goal?
4. Then choose the target group
5. Focus on the personal motivation for that target group.
6. Think about what information, service or product you can offer in what way.
7. Consider how by what means you will offer this.
8. What tactics will you use to achieve the goal?
9. On what indicators will you measure success?
10. What measurement tools will you use?
11. Who do you need to work with to realise the strategy?
12. Are you done with this strategy? Well, then it's time for the next one!
Always start with a strategy
The game allows you to quickly create multiple strategies. Every initiative in digital transformation should start with creating a digital strategy. This is the only way to measurably achieve goals and make mid-term adjustments to the strategy as needed.
Many digital transformations fail because there is no digital strategy or because the strategy is neither good nor optimised. With the strategy game, you have a set of short strategies that you can create, communicate, measure and improve quite easily.
