How to use DX Criteria in English

Why do DX Criteria?

There are three main ways to use DX Criteria
  • Quickly assess your organization’s DX progress
  • If you are a manager and want to know the DX status of each team or system
  • When you objectively tell your organization's DX status to an external partner

Diagnose the healthiness

You can do the assessments regularly, for example, once every half-year, to visualize your organization's strengths and weaknesses and leverage the result to discuss strategic decisions.

To ask support

The assessment result will help you show the weaknesses clearly and guide you to ask for better support and services. You may also use the assessment result to discuss developing more agile with external partners.

For large enterprise

If you are responsible for a large enterprise team, it is an excellent idea to assess by theme (e.g., by the team, by the system, etc.). You will learn about the differences and their common strengths and weaknesses.

Try DX Criteria without understanding DX Criteria aims to give your business activities a competitive edge in an uncertain era. We encourage you to experiment and learn from experience repeatedly. Using the DX Criteria as a guideline, repeat experiments to find the right digital transformation and developer experience for your organization.
Concerning scores without discussion and improvement
By having DX Criteria assessment results, we want all the organizations to have a clear point of view in the discussion to improve proactively. Moreover, it will be lost if management sets these as evaluation targets.
Focus on results rather than content The DX Criteria focus on the norms, culture, and capability of organizations that perform agile hypothesis testing. Don't be satisfied by fulfilling all the criteria to focus on finding the bottlenecks and improvement.
Get personal We don't want DX Criteria to blame your teammate or colleagues. Please challenge to have a better discussion by visualizing the nature of software development.
