Knowledge, Learning, Community

This recent initiative and roadmap from Educause is based on the concept of Digital Transformation (Dx). It includes a strategy design framework (slides) and ongoing conversation around the challenges created by the need for a digital strategy. There's also a checklist and self-assessment tool for institutions (more). The strategy itself is a straightforward planning model that begins with 'Purpose' (why are you undertaking the process), the context and input (sometimes called the 'drivers', but not here), desired outcomes and outputs, and then finally inputs (or resources). I think the main contribution here is the rebranding of 'x' to mean 'transformation' (instead of 'additional' or 'extra', as in EdX or TEDx).
