Smartphones and tablets are personal

Enterprise communicators that want space on users’ home screens must
understand that employees are influenced by consumer experience.

Mobile Strategy is a Must
Putting it all on mobile
without a clear rationale is
not a mobile strategy.
©2014 Confidential and Proprietary
26
At the very least, need to determine approach
Mobile
Everything
Mobile
Derivative
Mobile First
Mobile Only
Mobile emulates
fully the
services and
functionality of
the desktop
experience
Selecting for
mobile particular
services and
functionality from
desktop
experience
Solution scope
that will be
released for
mobile use
ahead of release
for desktop
Solution scope
that resides
exclusively in the
mobile
experience
The experience must be scalable over time and rationalized with other
channels/devices (e.g., work PC, work kiosk, home PC, tablets).

Best practices for defining mobile strategy
A sound mobile strategy is driven by an assessment of business value and relevant
circumstances for the business and its constituents




Which tasks, services, and content are high value to users and business and are appropriate for the mobile
context:
‒
Are specific and familiar
‒
Can be accomplished in short bursts of time
‒
Don’t require a lot of detailed reading or analysis
‒
Are available now or viable technologically
Keep Millennials in mind:
‒
Not a homogenous group; segment audience by who benefits and how
‒
Embrace change: devices, UX, process
‒
Early adopters, learn by trying
But don’t forget everyone else:
‒
Change management
‒
Instructions
‒
Process change
And remember that the entire experience exemplifies your brand.
