3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Let Doubt Stop you from Achieving your Digital Goals

Is the worry of failing stopping you from implementing digital transformation within your organisation? Did you have a bad experience in the past? Were your learners not receptive to change? Does it just seem like it’s too big a project?

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, changing the way you operate and deliver things to employees and customers. This may sound daunting, but with the right guidance it will become invaluable to your business.

 

Here is a list of 3 common barriers holding organisations back from successful digital transformation: 

1. We’ve tried a few years ago and it didn’t work. 

Bad experiences in the past can cast doubt but instead of looking at it as a fail why not look at it as a learning experience. Implementing change is hard, think about all the times you stopped and started something in your own personal life. Throw a whole organisation into the mix and it might seem near impossible. But the good news is it’s not. For years we’ve been helping companies implement digital change, transforming their organisations for the better. 

Here are a few key things that will make it easier for you along the way:

  • Go slow in the beginning, building commitment to change takes time.
  • Have a firm vision on what you want to achieve and break it down into small goals that can deliver measurable results that align with your vision. By doing this it will make things more manageable and help you really see results.
  • Include any stakeholders - execs, managers, employees or volunteers - these can vary depending on your organisation in your discussions. A handful of passionate people leading the change can make all the difference and it means that there are fewer surprises.

Why now?

These past 5 months for many organisations has been a steep learning curve for everyone. COVID-19 has forced the whole world to work in a new way. Organisations have had to embrace technology in a way they haven’t had to before, with virtual meetings, working remotely, and training at home. If your organisation has a digital strategy in place, it will help with business continuity and minimise disruption to your organisation. It will allow you to adjust in a way that you have never been able to before and reach more people, no matter where they have to work.  Also, Your end-users can work through the assessment and materials at their own pace, rather than following the group at a time to suit them rather than fixed classroom events.

2. We are a smaller organisation we can’t possibly afford it.

This is a common concern within an organisation. When you hear the words “digital transformation” you might instantly think you need cutting edge supercomputers for everyone and a server room. You might think that a Learning Management System (LMS) is too much or that an eLearning course will take up your whole budget for the year, but this needn’t be the case. A better approach is to understand how the business needs to change to deliver an improved experience for employees and customers.

Focus on a goal that complements a smaller technology-enabled project that will deliver measurable value to customers quickly.

An important aspect of any digital transformation project is the need to upskill your team to help them deliver the organisations vision of a digitally-enabled future. We understand that budget is always a priority no matter what size organisation you are part of, that’s why we offer a comprehensive range of ready-made eLearning courses as well the capability to develop high-quality bespoke eLearning content. Remember when there are digital options available there is a saving of time and money with traveling expenses and time out of businesses eliminated.

We are experts in digital transformation and can help you figure out what to prioritise, what can be done in the short term, and also help you build a path to the future.

3. I have all the training resources but I’m not sure how this will work when delivered online?

Having all the training resources in place is a great place to be, it allows things to move faster because much of the hard work is already done. Figuring out how you want to deliver this training will help identify the best way forward. Do you want to get rid of face-face-training and go fully digital or maybe you want a blended approach with a bit of both? As well as eLearning and face-to-face training, blended learning can also incorporate virtual learning environments (virtual classrooms), providing tools for real-time communication such as video conferencing, chat rooms, instant messaging, VOIP as well as asynchronous learning tools such as social media, email, forums, blogs, and podcasts. If this seems a bit overwhelming, don’t’ worry - we can help you find the best solution for your needs.

 

 

Digital training is delivered using a Learning Management system or commonly referred to as a LMS. We offer a flexible, cloud-based LMS eNetLearn which enables you to deliver, track, report on, and evaluate your eLearning from a single dashboard.  Our LMS handles not only SCORM eLearning but PDFS, PowerPoints and other media files too. So they can get started with online learning with existing content quickly without having to convert/transform it all depending on its current state. Access to materials is always available so serves as a good reference piece for those that want to refresh their knowledge and the assessment results/badge are live in real-time so no delay for results
