Digital transformation impacts all aspects of our economy and society. The OECD’s Going Digital Toolkit helps countries realise the promises of the digital transformation by providing indicators, policy guidance, and related publications to assess their state of digital development and formulate policies in response.

The Going Digital Integrated Policy Framework is a vital resource for shaping an inclusive digital economy and society. The Going Digital Toolkit is structured along 7 policy dimensions pulled from the framework to ensure a comprehensive and holistic approach to policymaking and achieving a digital transformation that benefits all:

  • Access to communications infrastructures, services and data;
  • Effective use of digital technologies and data;
  • Data-driven and digital innovation;
  • Good jobs for all;
  • Social prosperity and inclusion;
  • Trust in the digital age; and
  • Market openness in digital business environments.

Toolkit Notes

The toolkit notes identify crucial aspects to consider when addressing challenges of the digital age, and provide innovative approaches, and policy recommendations to make concrete changes.
