Strategy in the digital age

As markets are disrupted and organisations, and even industries, are disintermediated, it’s imperative that businesses have a clear and compelling vision of how they will transform to better serve customers and shareholders. Some organisations know this yet struggle with where to start with designing or implementing a Digital Strategy – or some have started, but efforts are siloed, fractured and benefits realisation is a pipedream. Pathfinder are the Digital Strategy experts, ready to help you at any stage of your digital journey.

Developing an organisation-wide
Digital Strategy is a must – but why?

In today’s digital world, organisations must frequently adapt in order to respond to ever evolving customer expectations. Your customers’ experiences with FAANG organisations (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google) and other digital leaders raise the bar in terms of what they then expect from more traditional companies.

Are you
meeting these needs?

Organisations that don’t have a clear and compelling vision of how they will transform to better serve their customers and shareholders will fall by the way-side – which in real terms will be seen as loss in market share, increase in the cost and time to serve your customers, and an increase in customer churn. This north star – a clear and compelling vision – is the critical component which underpins investment and decision-making, allowing organisations to empower teams to deliver effectively.

This is where
we help you

Pathfinder have designed and implemented Digital Strategies across multiple industries and sectors, so we know exactly how to get to the heart of what you need, and quickly.

We work in partnership with your team to develop a digital strategy which is clear, compelling and most importantly specific; the “high kerbs” for the “wide road”.

Our time with organisations who have successfully transformed their customer experiences has shown us that they share an ability to empower teams to deliver outcomes, without dictating how they should achieve them. They do this by setting a clear vision to guide the teams’ progress; freedom within a framework. We’ll help you achieve this by using insights from your customers, your teams and our own insights from other high-performing organisations to develop a strategy which can actually be delivered.

What
we will deliver

  • A clear vision for your business and the role of digital which will provide you with a long-term view of where you’re headed
  • Analysis of key customer and competitive trends which will drive your digital strategy
  • A clear articulation of the key capabilities required to build a digitally focused organisation
  • Direction on the core underlying technologies (including the role of existing legacy systems) to deliver based on your organisational strengths and industry specifics
  • Specific and tangible roadmaps and execution plans
  • A high level business case to help drive key investments.
