The Digital Capability Framework (DCF) is a strategic management toolset designed to help companies orchestrate digital business transformation using a structured approach. It incorporates the Business Transformation Management Methodology (BTM²), providing leaders with a holistic approach to digital business transformation, which has already been leveraged by transformation leaders at companies such as DHL, Unilever and SAP.
In recent decades, traditional tools such as ITIL, CMMI, COBIT, PRINCE2, PMBOK, etc. have provided common ways of working, helping many leaders embed consistency and good practice into their organisations.
Similarly those involved in transformation are adopting transformation tools such as the DCF and BTM², and avoiding taking random transformation approaches that give rise to the chaos, confusion and increased risk that many transformation initiatives tend to suffer from.
The Digital Capability Framework consists of four building blocks and six steps, which are introduced below.
