Stage Five:

As Stage 5 unfolds, digital transformation becomes ingrained in an organisation's DNA, permeating governance, leadership, personnel, operations, customer experiences, data management, analytics, technology integration and digital proficiency.

To sustain this evolution, a dedicated digital transformation team is established, tasked with propelling ongoing innovation, strategy refinement and business growth anchored in both business and buyer-centric objectives.

Digital literacy has seamlessly woven itself into the fabric of the business, fostering a culture of perpetual learning. Decision-making processes are now fueled by data insights, meticulously optimised to yield tangible results.

Data skills indicators

You have at least a couple of people on the data team who can use a range of tools to get the most suitable insights from the type of data that you have (e.g. summarising competitor reports, financial statement industry comparisons, mining social media data for patterns).

Decision making indicators

While not fully integrated, you have a culture that values data insight and a team that knows how to ask the right questions about machine output.
