Virtual Chief Officer Capabilities
CMP's Virtual Chief Digital Officer (VCDO) is one of our virtual capability resources, offering part-time executive level expertise at a fraction of the cost of a permanent or interim position. Essentially, CMP’s VCDO supplements existing capabilities with specific digital leadership capacity to help facilitate greater alignment of needs, implementation planning and minimisation of potential risk, duplication or conflicts.
Because there is no one right answer or solution to building end to end Digital success CMP have developed a ‘Digital Readiness’ audit as part of its VCDO service to support leadership decision making and planning. These audits are the first step towards ensuring successful delivery of digital outcomes which cover;
Business needs and drivers – Why the organisation needs to digitally transform, its objectives, intent and vision;
Culture and people – How do people wish to work for greater effectiveness and;
Technology and tools – What are the resources and applications that are best able to deliver the organisation's future strategic needs as a whole.
Typical VCDO Measures
Example outcomes would cover: Commercial control of Shadow IT and Data use (Cloud and SaaS value add); Harnessing of Data sharing within controllable policy frameworks; Building of a digital roadmap and implementation planning that brings people and processes closer together; Testing of assumptions and deliverables against new target operating model and benefits plan; Execution of full lifecycle data protection and security testing that is aligned to digital working practices and policies.
