Digital Maturity

The Digital Maturity Leadership Model provides a baseline on where local authorities are in their digital transformation journey by capturing the views of their full leadership team and what opportunities exist moving forward.


To carry out this assessment, an introductory workshop or meeting is held to explain out the purpose of the model to the senior management team with a sample CMT report also available.


Face-to-face interviews are then carried out with senior managers, followed by online surveys which are distributed within the organisation to other layers of management (discretionary). There are 3 different question sets available for use - senior managers, head teachers and elected members. 


One the interviews and survey has been completed, the Digital Office carry out an analysis activity and produce a report which details the level of digital maturity the organisation currently sits at and full details of the findings of the survey. Feedback workshops with senior managers are available and a detailed digital road map is produced. The individual council results are confidential and no league table is defined however information on opportunities and best practice is shared across the Partnership.
