Digital Transformation Payday

Navigate the hype, lower the risks, increase return on investments

Digital Transformation Payday provides a provocative new perspective on digital transformation payback accelerators and decelerators developed by Tim Bottke, Senior Strategy Partner at Deloitte and Associate Professor for Strategy and Digital Transformation at SDA Bocconi.

What does it take to make your digital transformation (ever) pay you back? After a challenging executive client discussion without clear-cut answers, the quest for solving this business-critical challenge became the original motivation to write this book. Four years of empirical research later and based on more than 20,000 data points, Digital Transformation Payday is now the first ever data-driven guide for improving your digital transformation payback. All that built on a unique combination of the experience from the global #1 professional services firm Deloitte and cutting-edge scientific research from a leading global business school, SDA Bocconi.

Three insights about digital transformation value

  • There is no digital transformation one fits all solution or THE best practice example without your own winning strategy, endurance and an eye for the detail and manifold complex interdependencies.
  • There is no value-generating digital transformation without a careful management of all your digital transformation payday accelerators and decelerators.
  • There is no single plannable digital transformation payday, but our empirical data can help you understand your company's real-world odds of succesfully navigating your chosen journey.
