Building your digital workplace plan
✔ You've chosen a technology partner
✔ You've completed your prep work
✔ You've assembled your team
It's time to build your digital workplace plan.
During the Plan Stage of your digital transformation journey, our consultants work with you to build a digital workplace plan. Where possible, our experts build on your existing plans, using them as fundamental building blocks. These can include items such as:
- Business case
- Requirements documents
- Use cases
- Survey data
- Gap analysis
A digital workplace plan outlines what you're trying to achieve, how you're going to get there and when, where you are now, and what outcomes you expect. Without a well-defined strategy in place, it becomes extremely difficult to reach your goals and measure success (including ROI and ROO).
This plan also plays a key role in providing key sponsors and stakeholders with the information they need to understand how the digital workplace will improve productivity, innovation, and competitive advantage.

Components of a digital workplace plan
Over the past decade, Igloo experts have been refining the key components or ingredients of a successful digital workplace plan. In this section, we've assembled a complete working example of a digital workplace plan and its components.
Where possible, we have included instructions, explanations, examples and best practices on all major components including:
- Mission and Vision: Where are you going? Where do you want to be?
- Goals and Objectives: How are you going to reach your vision?
- Benefits: Why are you taking the journey in the first place?
- Expectations: What are you going to deliver? What can people expect to see? What are the business benefits? Are they measurable?
- Target timeline: When is this all going to happen?
- Costs and resources: How much is this going to cost? What are the resource needed (e.g. people, expertise, technology)?
- Measures of success: What are your KPIs? What outcomes are you expecting and when? How are you going to measure them? What are the feedback loops?
- Governance: What type of governance are you going to leverage (e.g. structured, adhoc, decentralized)?
