Additional Information

Impact Logic: Our Vision, Mission & Impact

To achieve our vision to transform Switzerland into a leading digital nation, we act as an orchestrator together with our members, partners, and other important stakeholders – the agents of impact (“Wirkungsträger”) – in the area of B2C, B2B and B2G.

We generate impact in six fields of activity (“Wirkungsfelder”) – such as “Education, Professionals and Diversity” – thanks to joint initiatives and activities. With these, we drive the digital transformation in selected impacts streams (“Wirkungsstreams”) that are key for a digital nation (click on the image below):

Governance: Lean & Impact-Oriented

In all our activities and initiatives, we count on the strong commitment and engagement of our members and reach common goals based on a very lean and impact-driven governance as follows (click on the image below):

All our association members come together and form our “General Assembly”. The Steering Committee is the strategic advisory board to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee – our association board – is elected by the General Assembly. It is organised along our “impact logic” (“Wirkungslogik”) with accountable leaders per “Wirkungsträger” and “Wirkungsstream” and complemented by specific support functions such as: “Strategy”, “Portfolio Management”, “Nomination Committee” as well as “Risk, Compliance & Finance”.

The digitalswitzerland office is responsible for the strategy execution and mobilisation. It is present in every region of Switzerland, which emphasises our strong commitment for the regional inclusion and impact in the regions.
