If your business is trying to decide whether to launch a Digital Transformation initiative, you may be wondering how this effort will affect your team members. Will your team perceive this effort as adding work to their already heavy workload, or resent having to learn new systems and solutions? Will your team benefit from the initiative or will you be challenged to convince them of the benefits the enterprise will reap and why they should care enough about the organization to sacrifice their own productivity or to learn something new?
These days it is hard to pick up an industry journey or business publication without seeing the term ‘Digital Transformation’ (AKA Dx). The basic premise of Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology by businesses to transform, streamline and improve services, workflow and business processes. These initiatives involve a systematic review of non-digital or manual processes to replace these inefficiencies with digital processes and might include replacing out-of-date technologies with new, more effective digital technologies.
Software Product Need a Tune-Up? Don’t Focus on the Fix. Re-Engineer for Success!
Let me tell you a story. My friend, Shaniqua just got a new job and found, to her dismay, that her first project involved the re-engineering of a software product the business had introduced to the market (to less than favorable response). I talked to Shaniqua on the phone and we discussed her conundrum. The business loved the software product but consumers had a lot of issues with its responsiveness, the lack of an intuitive user experience (Ux) design and many other details, including loading data that was integrated from other sources. In short, the original software product design and development was less than stellar and now the company was paying the price.

When you engage an offshore service provider, you must predict measurable results and achievements in order to justify the cost of acquiring the service. Ideally, the value of the service should exceed, or at the very least, be equal to, the monetary investment. If the value of a service or product is particularly unique, the organization may be willing to pay more for that service or product. This document includes some recommended value factors for your consideration. We have also included two approaches to analyze vendor value. One is a ‘risk’ assessment and the other is a ‘weighted value’ assessment. You may use one of these two methodologies to calculate the value of a vendor service offering versus the quoted cost or fee.
