With new digital technologies come opportunities for low and middle-income countries to diversify their economies, create new jobs, transform agriculture, and improve health and education. But digital technologies can also entrench exclusion and disrupt peoples’ livelihoods.
This MWG short course investigates why having an extensive, flexible digital roadmap in place is key to guiding your organization’s goals through digital initiatives. A digital roadmap is a set of guidelines that outlines what goals a business wants to achieve, and identifying some digital methods that can help a business achieve those goals.
We will also explore ways to design a blueprint for action that aligns digital initiatives with both short & long-term business objectives. By planning out a strategically feasible digital roadmap, developments will enable a business to convert the business vision into a realistic action plan that mitigates and deter risk and ensuring digital initiatives deliver the expected results.
The next thing to touch on will be to understand that without a realistic plan for where the digital roadmap wants to go with digital and actionable insights to determine a business directions, the business can end up making unwise digital investments that fail to deliver results causing no measurable impacts on your Business Impact Analysis (BIA). Therefore having a realistic plan is just as important as an effective roadmap.
This course aims to enlighten and enhance businesses with a digital roadmap to achieve a guideline, equipping you to drive digital transformation within your own organization.
