Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs that organisations should consider digital transformation?

The trigger depends on your strategy, vision and objectives for success. For some organisations there may be an imminent need to reduce costs and drive efficiencies or a need to expand teams for innovation. For others your current technology is not meeting the demands of the customer or enabling omnichannel sales. You might be losing out to competitors and need to address CX and service design. Other organisations transform due to a pressing need for cultural change, due to organisational redesign. 

What does successful transformation look like?

We believe that identifying benefits at the start of any programme is an integral part of the design. Scoping the vision should be done early on and metrics should be set up to make sure the outcomes and benefits are measured. At Nine Feet Tall, we design solutions with implementation in mind, so you can have confidence the benefits are realistic and achievable.  

What are the biggest barriers to successful change delivery in retail?

The challenge of embracing change is prevalent in numerous industries. Surprisingly, approximately 75% of businesses face difficulties in implementing transformation programs effectively. This can be attributed to the common mistake of underestimating the profound impact of change and neglecting to establish a robust change management strategy.

However, by having a well-defined purpose and effectively engaging the emotions and support of your workforce, it becomes possible to cultivate a positive organisational culture and greatly enhance the prospects of successful digital adoption.
