Digital Maturity Assessment

Assessing the Level of Your Digital Readiness

How effective is your Digital Transformation?
Are you seeing Digital Maturity in your organisation?
And, how balanced is it across your organisation?

If you are unclear about the answers to these questions, then you will need to consider applying the IKE Institute Digital Maturity Assured Framework® to help your organisation progress its digital maturity journey. The level of digital maturity gives an effective benchmark that provides an overall impression on the pace of digital transformation and adaption within an organisation and its business model.

Maturity is commonly understood as "a learned ability to respond to the environment in an appropriate manner".

The IKE Institute Digital Maturity Assured Framework can operate either as a self-contained assessment module or as an extension to the Investor in Innovations® Standard.

The IKE Institute Digital Maturity Framework (DMF) describes the following Digital Maturity Levels within an organisation or a business unit.

The DMF provides an accurate overall view of an organisation’s digital journey towards a “Digitally Optimised State” and identifies the efforts and related smart actions that it may need to be undertaken to progress its maturity state.
