To help Social Service Agencies (SSAs) understand where they are in their digital transformation journey and provide actionable insights, NCSS has partnered the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) to develop the Digital Acceleration Index (DAI). The DAI enables participating SSAs to evaluate and assess their organisation’s digital strengths and weaknesses, and to gain a better understanding of their state of digitalisation across multiple dimensions. This allows SSAs to develop their digitalisation strategies and plans in a more targeted manner. SSAs will also be able to assess their digitalisation improvements over a multi-year period with future DAI surveys.SSAs participating in the DAI will receive a report on how they perform across the key dimensions of digital maturity, and how they compare with peers in the same sector who have also used the diagnostic tool.
