I’ve decided to put it in writing and out in the open: my personal checklist for digitalisation projects and programs.
I am doing this for three reasons:
- to share my experience
- to seek your feedback
- to establish new relationships
I believe in sharing experience
In almost two decades in various industries and types of business, I’ve come across a pretty consistent pattern of challenges for digitalisation projects. There have been some differences from client to client, but more often than not, the same root cause had prevented previous success or was getting in the way of the newly initiated project.
This checklist is basically the deep dive into my previous article on “wittingly cutting corners”, that I published on Simply Communicate in 2018. It’s what I was referring to as the framework that puts an agile initiative (project or program) on a strong foundation.
Sharing this will hopefully get me some insight into what people think about my point of view and how my experience compares to that of others out there.
I’m always excited about feedback & exchange
What I’m sharing is my subjective experience. The best way to make sure that I’m on the right track is to find people who are willing to challenge my thoughts or complement them with their own. Through this, I want to add a little more objectivity to my point of view and increase the value that I can add to my client’s endeavours.
To everyone’s surprise, I’m keen on winning new clients
First of all, it still humbles me how many people have decided to support my new freelance adventure. They have put their personal trust in me, and for that I am very grateful.
After one year, I’ve decided to investigate the options of building entirely new relationships and “actively market” the Sherpa. So this is my first step in that direction.
If you like what I’ve shared today, and especially if you think I might have hit a nerve in your organisation, please get in touch. Put me to the test and see if I can bring something to your team, something that makes the climb to the digital summit more pleasant.
