This is part of a series of posts that explores the “Adaptive Digital Strategy Framework” , an operative guide that I created to plan, execute and manage online strategy programs more effectively and efficiently.

This is a problem that I still see constantly faced by internal teams in large but also in mid-sized organizations, so I decided to dedicate an additional post to this topic. Today I’m going to share with you a specific methodology that I use and that will help you define more efficiently and accurately your digital governance model.
