This also allows your business to deliver a high ROI by maximising digital initiatives.

How flexible should your digital roadmap be?

Your business’s digital roadmap should be flexible and provide clarity on your goals, ethos and methods. However, this roadmap should be concise. You can provide additional supporting documentation if necessary.

Whilst there is a period of constant transition, the most forward thinking businesses understand that roadmaps must be flexible and amendable when they are not delivering the intended results. A digital roadmap can be compared to a GPS system in that the business has a clear understanding on where it’s heading and how it will get there.

Whilst having goals and a plan is important, having an effective roadmap is the most important aspect. Without this business clarity, the company lacks actionable insight. When digital investments are not throughout they fall out of your line of focus, and will fail to deliver a high ROI. This is one of the many reasons a digital roadmap is crucial.

Digital Roadmap

How to create your effective roadmap

By avoiding a strict plan you are able to create a more flexible document which is a constant work in progress. This means your digital strategy can remain in line with business objectives and their changes and developments over time.

Reviewing your digital roadmap on a regular basis ensures it will be up to date with changes in the business, influences from people in senior management and other external factors. For example, sometimes what competitors are focusing on will help shape your digital roadmap.

Ownership of Roadmap

It is also important that only one person takes full ownership of your roadmap. Whilst it is important to have input from all relevant stakeholders, the roadmap should be built from a series of creative and collaborative sessions. This ensures the plan you are making for the business in a digital space is integrated and focused accordingly. It is also important to consider your businesses digital roadmap as a means of delivering wider company goals as opposed to single digital initiatives.

How to get started on your digital roadmap

By firstly defining your business objectives you will be able to base your strategy on clear goals from the beginning. This must include a series of key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure the roadmap is on the right track and progressing as expected.

Ambitious goals and checkpoints should be incorporated throughout the entire document to demonstrate the proposed roadmap’s rationale. Because of this, most businesses find it useful to first conduct a SWOT analysis. This helps to identify where the potential gaps may lie e.g. technology or support, and therefore areas that need to be addressed to ensure the digital strategy is successful.

Each value in the digital initiative should be understood in terms of its cost, risk and complexity. This helps to determine whether the entire digital roadmap is worth developing based on this and it’s comparison to the predefined goals.

Having a third party complete a competitor analysis and benchmark external factors is often useful as they are able to see your environment objectively. This also proves useful as they can gain a non-bias understanding of the businesses products, supporting technology and achievability of goals.

Having an external perspective can also prove beneficial in terms of comparing your digital strategy to others in the same market. Experienced consultants can understand how your digital roadmap compass to competitors and whether it meets consumer expectations. Expert consultants will be much better qualified and more experienced to help your business in this way.

What does your digital roadmap look like?

Typically, a business’s capability to increase business value from the digital strategy discussed on this page is directly related to the business itself. Whether the organisation has the correct practices and processes in-build to carry out the roadmap is more important that the roadmap itself. Your business’s digital culture will directly affect whether innovation can be driven through digital innovation.

 

However, creating a clear and flexible digital roadmap provides your organisation with direction and guidance. This will prove invaluable to ensuring smaller digital experiments are progressed in a timely manner. Digital prototypes produced in this way are crucial in allowing your digital transformation as they provide insight into customer demographics and opinions. Small projects such as these also help build successful cases for your business’s larger digital initiatives.
