Digital Transformation Vision Statement
What is a vision statement when doing digital transformation? It is a statement that defines the necessary activities in your company(or your department) to achieve the vision.
Let’s say you are a manager in a big company. And you want to transform your company into a digital one. You need to define what digital transformation is in your company. You create a vision statement. And define how it is going to happen in your company.
A good vision statement should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound (SMART). It puts all the pieces together and gives direction to the team or the departments for achieving the vision.

We are going to achieve this by simplifying the search function in the website, improving the visual design of the website, and adding a tab for frequently asked questions.”
Example 2: “We want to increase the sales of our product “ABC” by adding additional features in it. To achieve this, we are going to add an automatic update feature. This feature will allow us to update our product easily without any manual intervention. This way the customers will get an updated product whenever they re-install their software.”
Example 3: “We want to make our website more user-friendly in a year. We aim to increase the number of visitors to our website by 10%. To achieve this, we will add an automatic update feature. This feature will allow us to update our product easily without any manual intervention. This way the customers will get an updated product whenever they re-install their software.”
