Digital Transformation - 10 Benefits of Using a Consultant

An outline of the 10 main benefits.

It's well known that no part of the economy is immune to the impacts of digital disruption. Not surprisingly, industry sectors as well as individual organisations, differ in their preparedness. While some organisations are sufficiently well resourced and prepared internally to deal with this impact unassisted, in reality, most benefit from at least some level of external assistance.

There are different levels and types of external consulting support that may be appropriate either to anticipate and prepare for digital disruption or to respond to and benefit from it if further down the track. This paper provides 10 ways in which your organisation might benefit by drawing on the expertise of an external consultant. Not all of them will be relevant in all cases but many are very consistent.

For convenience, the 10 benefits are listed using the mnemonic D-I-S-R-U-P-T-I-O-N.
