We have the perfect solution for you!

We created The Digital Growth Roadmap™ to help people like you.

It's possible to go fast AND be thorough, when you have a great method to guide you along the way. 

The Digital Growth Roadmap™ focuses on all the things needed for long term success. We'll use this simple and comprehensive approach to get clear on where you are right now with Digital. Once we understand where you are, we'll then work with you to determine the best next steps to take.

There are three stages, with three simple steps in each:

Step 1: Digital Assessment

Includes:

  • Marketplace Assessment
  • Team Survey (Digital Capability)
  • Internal Assessment

Step 2: Digital Strategy

Includes:

  • Leadership Point of View
  • Insights Summary
  • Growth Projections & ROI Calculation

Step 3: Digital Roadmap

Includes:

  • Project Identification
  • Scope, Schedule, Budget
  • Pacing and Staging

More on what's involved in each step in a little bit...

You may be thinking that this is too complicated for you - that you're a Digital Newbie...

No need to worry! We've focused on making this whole process simple and straightforward. The key is that we use our proven tools to understand:

  • Exactly where you are today,
  • The growth digital is going to enable you,
  • and the gaps that may exist.

From here, we'll help you set objectives and prioritize them in a way that makes the most sense for you.

 

Perhaps you're concerned about making the time?

Many business leaders are the busiest they've ever been and time is at a premium. We know that, and we've worked hard to build a method that minimizes the draw on your time.

BUT we do need you to attend a few workshops and meetings over a four-week period.

The Second Spring team will work to create a plan that you can put in place and start getting results. Without any heavy lifting on your part.

Here's how we'll spend our time together

We'll guide you though a three-step Digital growth planning activity.

Step 1 - Digital Assessment

Marketplace Assessment

We'll conduct a Marketplace Assessment of up to five of your competitors and digital role models. Then we will compare their customer strategies to your company.

This activity will generate some eye-opening insights - "so that's how they do it!" - clients often say. The five components of The Digital Customer Loop™ will form the basis of your Marketplace Assessment report.

Digital Capability Snapshot

Team Survey (DIGITAL CAPABILITY)

We will then conduct a Team Survey by providing our Digital Capability Snapshot™ survey to your entire team. This provides insights on how your team feels about Digital across seven key dimensions including:

  • People
  • Culture
  • Ways of Working
  • Operations
  • Technology
  • Relationships
  • Innovation

We will further slice and dice your data by providing you insights based on the following demographical elements

  • Age Range
  • Years of Service
  • Location
  • Level
  • Gender

And, we'll keep this survey data anonymous, to protect your team and have them feel confident in sharing what they really think.

Internal Assessment

Next, we create an Internal Assessment of your company. here we look at you business based on the five components of The Growth Enablement Loop™.

These People, Technology, Data, Cash, and Plan components enable the long-term growth in your Digital capability. Worse case, they can act as growth blockers if not managed

STep 2 - Digital STRATEGY

Leadership Point of View & Insights summary

We will begin by collecting the Leadership Point of View of up to five of your executive team, using our Project Composer™ tool.

This allows us to learn more about objectives for digital and key results that are required. It helps us deepen our insights generated by the assessment activities.

We will also uncover valuable "resistance items" that could get in the way if not addressed.

The Project Composer-1

Then we begin the strategy by gleaning insights from the Assessment. We will create an Insights Summary with the key findings about your Customers, your Team, and your Business.

Growth Projections & ROI Calculation

Next, we address the need for clear revenue growth goals for digital investments. And we create the return on investment calculation you will want before beginning. 

We will work with you to pick a timeframe for digital growth and set an ambitious revenue target.

Then we will dig into the drivers for digital growth with you. Together, we'll define the detailed elements required to drive your digital growth. THis allows us to create your Digital Growth Projections.

And that's the easy part. Anyone can create a 'hockey stick' chart for you.

We will keep going and define in detail what needs to happen to enable that growth.

  • What are the required marketing investments?
  • What technology will we put in place?
  • What new hires should we plan for?
  • What ongoing support is critical to optimize and grow your business, month-over-month?
  • And, what does this all COST?

We will show you the gross margin and EBITDA that you can plan for with digital. Then, we can create an ROI Calculation for your growth.

At this point, we have your high-level Digital Strategy created for the first time. And we will meet with you to get your feedback on it before turning it into a Roadmap.

STep 3 - Digital Roadmap

Project Identification

Here we organize and refine your strategy into a set of initiatives that you will need to implement

The first step is Project Identification. Here we generate some detail on the projects that bring your strategy to life. Some will be tagged to your internal team, and some will be tagged to external service providers

SCOPE, Schedule and Budget

We add Scope, Schedule and Budget estimates for each project. Then we will go a step further by identifying the impacts on your internal resources from the changes. After, we will identify the expected key results for each .

pacing and staging

Finally, we will conduct a Pacing and Staging activity. This will schedule your initiatives into a multi-year roadmap. We identify the recommended order for the initiatives and the dependencies between them. 

Lastly, we'll present your roadmap to you and finalize the plan for you to bring forward for implementation

Focused on Results

"Second Spring creates a plan in a way that is thorough, tailored and focused on results."
