digital transformation enterprise data and analytics strategy

Confucius said, “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”  Digital Transformation is that mountain for your organization to move.  It's complex and challenging, and there are many ways to fail.  

The scale and complexity of changing a department that has done one thing, one way for so many years, and completely rethinking and redeploying a digital version of that capability requires expertise in a number of areas including planning, technology, process improvement, leadership, strategy development, communication and governance.  

With Stephens Insight Group, we'll work with you and your teams, at your pace, to take a step-by-step approach.  Setting the vision, breaking down the work, onboarding new technologies and processes, delivering incremental value, and communicating transformation as it's happening is what we are passionate about.  Before we get ahead of ourselves, let's define what we mean when we say 'Digital Transformation', and then we'll describe some of the services we provide.

Defining Digital Transformation

Michael Krigsman, a Senior Partner from McKinsey described Digital Transformation as meaning two things at the highest level, “1) transforming the core, which is taking what we do today and leveraging technology to do it better, faster, cheaper, more effectively.  And, we talk about 2) new business building, which is stepping out of the core and creating something that didn't exist.”[1]

In short, Digital Transformation is two things: using new technology to improve existing capabilities and to create new value.
