Introducing the Digital Workplace Playbook, a Step-by-Step Guide for Success
Digital workplace transformation is more than just an exercise in re-wiring your existing tools and technology to adapt to the new world of work. It's a multi-stage journey that has many steps, checkpoints, and iterations along the way. And it requires building a strategy and plan with timelines, resources, and measurable outcomes focused on solving real business challenges across your entire organization.
The process can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. With Igloo as your digital transformation partner, you will have clear sight of your destination, and an expert-led, customer-tested path to get you there. We call it the Digital Workplace Playbook – a collection of key learnings, insights, and strategic recommendations based on first-hand experiences delivering successful digital workplaces.
What is the Digital Workplace Playbook?
The Digital Workplace Playbook is a comprehensive collection of articles, best practices, and resources, carefully curated by digital workplace experts to guide you through your digital transformation journey. We created the Playbook to give our customers self-serve access to the knowledge and expertise we’ve gained from implementing thousands of digital workplace solutions. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel. With the Playbook, you get everything you need (and more) to create a winning long-term digital workplace strategy – from start to finish.
A proven implementation framework
At Igloo, every new digital workplace implementation is guided by our proven delivery framework. The Playbook, which consists of six stages, is structured to match the implementation process typically led by our team of digital workplace experts, providing on-demand access to the essential information you need at every stage.
