Program Description: 
Your Organization’s Strategy Depends on Your Digital Maturity

How does your organization talk about its technology? What about your members? Does the word “frustrating” come up often? Does technology work quietly (or loudly) in the background? Does it support and enable your organization’s mission and business objectives? Most organizations find their technology limiting, or at best, simply functional.

In this non-technical deep dive, we will share how to assess your organization’s current state of digital maturity so that it can start moving along the continuum from restrictive to innovative in its use of technology. Using an IT Maturity Model as a framework, we’ll focus on the four main quadrants of an organization’s technology:
  • Infrastructure
  • Online presence
  • Data
  • Governance and management
We will also review how any organization, large or small, can create a technology project portfolio and digital strategy that aligns with its mission, vision, and business objectives. This conversation and process is meant for the organization’s leadership team – including technology leadership.

After the session, you will have:
  • An understanding that IT should be a business unit and not a support department within your organization
  • An understanding of what it takes for an organization to be strategic in its use of technology
  • An IT maturity self-assessment tool
  • A model and process for developing a project portfolio and digital strategy
