Seven Business Benefits of Digital Transformation and How Agile Can Help Deliver Results Quickly
03 October 2017
This is a brief overview of digital transformation—including key steps, business benefits, and how agile can help deliver results quickly.
Digital transformation is about leveraging data and connectivity to change the way the business competes and adds value. Leaders who don’t seize this opportunity will see their organization's business value erode.
Digital transformation involves three key steps:
1. Convert data to insight. Collect, analyze and make sense of historical and real-time data.
2. Impart insight to action. Leverage the insight as an action within a business process or other application.
3. Convert action to outcome. Invent new or reinvent existing business processes or models, creating a stronger value proposition.
Digital transformation may yield one or more of the following benefits for businesses:
1. Reach ROI sooner
2. Better products/services
3. Faster time-to-market
4. Less waste
5. More profit
6. Protect/secure market share
7. Improved competitive advantage

About Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions
A fantastic agile transformation experience and result with a client organization in the entertainment industry was the inspiration for Scott M. Graffius’s multi award-winning book, Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions (ISBN-13: 978-1533370242).
Here's an excerpt from the book: "Shifting customer needs are common in today's marketplace. Businesses must be adaptive and responsive to change while delivering an exceptional customer experience to be competitive. Traditional development and delivery frameworks such as waterfall are often ineffective. In contrast, Scrum is a value-driven agile approach which incorporates adjustments based on regular and repeated customer and stakeholder feedback. And Scrum’s built-in rapid response to change leads to substantial benefits such as fast time-to-market, higher satisfaction, and continuous improvement—which supports innovation and drives competitive advantage."
