Description

It is expected that businesses will invest $7.4 trillion dollars towards Digital Transformation between 2020 and 2023. However, 70 % of all digital transformations are likely to fail. The biggest reasons for failures came down to inefficient means to deliver large-scale digital transformation.

We are experiencing Digital disruption of Digital transformation itself. On day 0 of COVID-19, when things started to shut down, faults with the current delivery methods of Digital transformation started to surface. Current Planning, budgeting, prioritization, resourcing, operations, and delivery just seems out of place and not relevant anymore,

By going on this course you will:

  • Understand why we are seeing the current level of disruption by looking at technological revolutions from the past decades.

  • Understand what does value means to customers and what should be done to maximize value.

  • Understand and identify wastes that are incurred at every step of the traditional delivery approach.

  • Understand why Agile and DevOps fail when applied at scale.

  • Apply 8 mindset and delivery method transitions in order to maximize value and minimize waste and lead through this period of disruption.

Who this course is for:
  • IT Project Managers
  • Agile Delivery Managers
  • IT Programme Managers
  • Chief Technology Offices
  • Chief Executing Offices

It is expected that businesses will invest $7.4 trillion dollars towards Digital Transformation between 2020 and 2023. However, 70 % of all digital transformations are likely to fail.

In this course first, we will find out why we are seeing the current level of disruption by looking at technological revolutions from the past decades.

Then we will examine our current state of digital transformation with a view to understand and identify wastes that are incurred at every step of the delivery.

We will then understand what does value means to customers and what should be done to maximize value?

Finally, we go through 8 mindset and delivery method transitions that every established business must make in order to maximize value and minimize waste and lead through this period of disruption.

We are living and working in chaotic times. If you have worked in Enterprise IT in the last 5 years, I am sure you have dealt with changes in technology platforms, software vendors, and software development methodology at frantic speed. These phenomenal changes are breaking existing processes across industries and forcing businesses to adopt new means of production. And this is happening at speeds never seen before, at least in our lifetimes.This scary and relentless pace of change is being branded as a disruption or more commonly referred to as Digital Disruption



Preview 01:46

We are at the Turning point of the Age of Software & Digital. This would explain the pace of disruption from the venture capitalist fueled new start-ups and tech giants who have mastered the new means of delivering large scale digital transformations.

Technological revolutions from past decades
09:21

70% of all Digital transformations are unsuccessful due to ineffective communication of the Value, Purpose, and the means to deliver large scale digital transformations.



The current state of Digital Transformation
02:27

The conventional delivery methods along with the Waterfall mindset focus on fixed scope, time, and cost. And measure progress based on completion of activities rather than the value it delivers to customers.



Issues with the conventional delivery methods

+ Understand Value and use Value stream maps to maximise value
4 lectures 14:33

Value is what customers want and are willing to exchange some economic unit for it. If customers cannot identify the value, they are unlikely to use or pay for the digital service or product.

What is value?
02:00

Established businesses often get so involved in their internal politics that they lose sight of the value and start to produce waste. Value Stream Map is an efficient and inexpensive way to differentiate which tasks add value and which tasks incur waste.



Identify the flow of value using Value Stream Maps
08:06

There are 4 items to consider when maximizing value to customers:

  • New Features

  • Defects

  • Risks

  • Technical Debts

Items that maximise value

+ Understand different types of wastes is Digital Delivery
5 lectures 16:05

Waste is any activity that consumes resources but does not add any economic value. All businesses to remain competitive and profitable must Identify and eliminate waste when delivering large scale digital transformation.

Preview 02:53

Scatter is a waste that occurs when the flow of knowledge is disrupted. In project delivery, these usually happen due to communication barriers and inefficient tooling.

Hand-off is the impact resulting from people making decisions who do not have enough knowledge to make them or skills and expertise to materialize them.

Knowledge waste - Hand-off
04:27

Wishful thinking is when decisions are made without supporting data guided by impulse.

Knowledge waste - Wishful thinking

+ Understand waste in Traditional delivery approach
4 lectures 21:26

Large upfront planning, budget approval, and recruitment. The progress is measured on scope, budget, and time rather than value to customers. This results in wasteful activities.
