How prepared is your organisation for the changing needs of a digital economy? For many business owners, while change is a certainty they don’t know exactly where to start. We have put together a diagnostic tool to help get you thinking about the changes you will need to make.

Our diagnostic contains 25 questions, and is designed to help you to assess your organisation’s readiness under six categories. The first two address your understanding of your customers and future business strategy. The final four categories are the areas of the business that will be key to implementing your future business strategy and delivering on the needs of your customer. Once you have identified the categories you need to develop your capabilities in, we have compiled a series of tools, articles and links to websites that will help you develop your organisational capabilities, and make the most of a broadband-enabled digital world.
