Building Your DX Capability
Demystifying DX- Executive Uplift Program
With all the hype in the market these days, one of the key challenges is understanding what to pay attention to. How are organisations actually creating value by applying technologies and what does digital transformation look like in practice? These are just some of the questions that executives are typically speaking t us about. IntAgile offer a short education program to demystify the art of Digital Transformation, educating executives on the core elements to pay attention to, the accelerators to increase speed to value and the enablers that savvy organisations are deploying to enable DX at speed and scale.
Traditional organisations, hierarchies, leadership styles and processes are most often the biggest causes of inertia and in fact failure during change effort. Unwinding behaviours and processes that simply slow you down requires dedicated and focussed leadership prepared to make difficult choices to enable DX. As John Keynes famously said, “The difficulty lies not so much in creating new ideas but escaping from the old ones”. In our Digital Leadership program, we work with your leaders to quickly identify how they can build momentum behind DX.

Preparing for DX - Holistic Technology Assessment Service
The technology assessment service gathers key information to help define a technology road map between current and target future operating models required to support the company strategy and DX plans. The assessment requires an objective, experienced perspective, combined with the practical knowledge to develop the plan to meet future business strategy and IT goals. The Technology Assessment service takes a holistic approach, analysing key aspects of the business strategy (and alignment with IT), IT or technology function of your company and technology environment, and providing your organisation with a plan to reach its strategic technology goals.
When is it needed?
Your company requires a Technology Assessment when you’ve encountered any of the following needs:
Need to Double Velocity and 5 or 10x Scale: Business is booming, and development speed needs to double in the next few months and applications need to scale
Tech Stack upgrades or changes required: Is outdated technology holding back the business from taking advantage of new opportunities or defending against disruption? A rapid upgrade of the technology stack may be required to satisfy new business agility, strategy objectives while continuing to serve existing customers with little disruption
M&A: How good is the technology of the target company? Are the technology, team, methodology and tools capable of meeting the objectives of the investment thesis?
Turn-around: Figure out why the IT team is not working at optimal productivity levels. Is it leadership, technological debt, tech stack, people, methodology, tools? Recommend corrective action
If the IT department is usually a cost centre focused on keeping the lights on and there is a need to move them to lead business strategy, business optimisation and innovation agenda’s

Organisation Change and Adoption
The barriers to successful digital transformation are often cited as being more organisational than technological. Regardless of where you are on your digital journey we can help you establish a structured organisational change strategy and practical interventions to drive digital adoption.
Prioritisation at a strategic and operational level is critical to success. Prioritising increases the success rates of strategic projects, increases the alignment and focus of senior management teams around strategic goals, clears all doubts for the operational teams when faced with decisions, and, most important, builds an execution mindset and culture.
IntAgile can facilitate a prioritisation and alignment process to enhance not only the strategic dialogue and alignment at the top of the organisation but to cascade and connect objectives across the organisation.
Our specialist project and change management resources can critically review either inflight or recently completed programs, to access governance, methodology, risk and team effectiveness. Whether it is learning from completed or abandoned projects or rescuing in flight, the team at IntAgile have deep expertise that can be deployed quickly to meet your needs
