Today, the World Economic Forum released the Redesigning Trust: Blockchain Deployment toolkit designed to guide organizations through the development and deployment of a new blockchain solution.

Blockchain has the potential to revolutionize how companies compete and stakeholders collaborate in the world of supply chains. An implementation of blockchain technology should be approached just as any other new solution an organisation wishes to integrate into its overall operation. Blockchain is one piece of the information technology (IT) puzzle that, if deployed correctly, complements the other solutions used every day to carry out routine and mission-critical tasks.

On the World Economic’s Strategic Intelligence platform, the Blockchain transformation map below, shows complex and interlinked forces that are influencing the landscape of this evolving technology.

The “transformation map” for Blockchain

The toolkit highlights nine key requirements that organisations typically need to address for any new enterprise solution. The requirements (shown below) are grounded in IT best practices and project management principles that are likely already familiar. The toolkit helps organisations think through and meet these typical enterprise requirements in the context of blockchain technology.

It is designed to help organisations with the hard work that comes in blockchain implementation. It includes 14 modules are meant to be used on an as needed basis, in whatever sequence is best suited to an organisation’s practice. Organisations can use the modules to support more responsible blockchain deployments, de-risk early adoption, and ensure careful consideration of unintended consequences.
