Webinar: A People-First Strategy for Digital Transformation

Human-Centered Approach to Digital Transformation

  • Digital transformation should consider the human aspect and the people interacting with the technology.
  • Many digital transformation projects fail due to overlooking the real problems and needs of the people involved.
  • A human-centered approach involves understanding people's perspectives, motivations, and behaviors to design effective solutions.

Reframing for Innovative Solutions

  • Reframing is a powerful tool for creating new perspectives and solutions by challenging old assumptions and looking at problems from different angles.
  • Successful reframing examples include Target's focus on value-conscious consumers, Airbnb's emphasis on local experiences, and Coca-Cola's insight into soda boxes as tools for finding and storing soda.
  • Reframing a problem is the most effective tactic for successful problem-solving.

Steps for Successful Reframing

  • Connect with the humans involved and understand the complexities of the human system.
  • Follow a cyclical process of observing, interviewing, listening, developing insights, prototyping, and getting feedback.
  • Use foundational work (need finding) to understand the needs and context of the humans involved.
  • Select the solution through rapid experimentation, where ideas are validated with people through time-boxed experiments.

Techniques for Successful Digital Transformation Projects

  • Conduct need-finding interviews using techniques to extract specific stories from people, as stories help understand problems better.
  • Rapid experiments should be conducted to quickly gather data and make decisions based on human feedback.
  • Ongoing testing with user involvement is crucial throughout the transformation process.
  • Data analysis should focus on specific examples of problems rather than generalizations, as people are better at solving specific issues.
  • Share analysis results with specific stories and examples to help others understand the depth of the problem.
