ITWNET Digital Transformation Scheme
ITWNET as a collective has partnered with industry leaders and subject matter experts to design a complete scheme to aid organisations in their quest to keep competitive and grow in the digital transformation era. The scheme is based in proven and solid tools, models and studies that identify the key critical capabilities either technOlogical, business or human based that need to be considered to successfully achieve a digital strategy.
The scheme consists in three pillars: 1-IT-CMF for assessing the digital readiness of any organisation; 2-Skillset for the digital leader which will allow any professional to up/re-skill to be ready for digital; 3-CBSD a collaborative tool that allows to define business services in an inclusive way.

The IT Capability Maturity Framework is a framework specifically created to derive real, measurable business value from IT. It helps organisations devise more robust strategies, make better-informed decisions, and perform more effectively, efficiently and consistently. Developed by The Innovation Value Institute (IVI in short, co-founded in 2006 by Maynooth University and Intel) has focussed in real world critical capabilities and a practical assessment model which have created a live knowledge base useful for any digital leader looking to understand an organisation digital readiness.
To be ready to lead the implementation of a given digital strategy, the professional needs to be ready to apply multiple skills including but not limited to communication, presentation, conflict solving, agile and critical thinking and more. The scheme provides the basis to up-skill or re-skill professionals to lead the transformation and become the liasions between business and IT.
There are many skills models. ITWNET community has decided to use an open framework that provides the full scope of knowledge to a digital ready professional.
CBSD requires people to think, to ask questions, formulate ideas, promote and challenge pre-existing concepts so that a fully coherent model is available to all involved in building the detail of a design and so that all the stakeholders (business and IT) can understand their roles.
The CBSD approach promotes an agile, structured working method; a simultaneous requirement analysis and synthesis of concepts and ideas; a focus on outcome and output: the target formulated by the customer, ‘the business outcome’, throughout the design process; involving all stakeholders and evaluating their perspectives/concerns: exploring design with input from every relevant discipline; and thinking about the consequences of decisions rather than hoping IT will fix everything.
