Abstract
We define and describe a strategic framework for digital learning transformation using a well-established multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) technique – the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). We classify the digital transformation paths along 12 different dimensions of becoming, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, interacting, tracking, questioning and beginning. These dimensions are organized as a hierarchy of digital functions after due-diligence of their interdependence analysis using the design structure matrix (DSM). This leads to identification of a digital learning structure amongst the 12 digital dimensions for the specific case.
The hierarchy of digital learning dimensions is utilized for strategic prioritization of these dimensions towards a digital learning transformation of any traditional learning system towards an amalgamated traditional + digital learning system in a seamless manner. The AHP method that converts pairwise comparisons by multiple experts and stakeholders into quantitative scores is utilized to create consensus amongst different stakeholders who typically may have different views on taking specific paths ahead. The AHP helps in not only checking the individual consistency of experts but also in visualizing the process of creating consensus amongst the group.
 The Digital Learning Transformation Framework (DLTF) proposed in this paper is generalized enough to adapt to any specific traditional learning systems to glean step-by-step roadmap for all key digital functions chosen through the DSM in specific context. Three key criteria of relative feasibility, learner’s value and technological enhancement are used to rank order chosen digital functions for the particular context or application. Three different scores are then utilized for creating a digital strategic transformation roadmap along the chosen dimensions for the specific case. The DLTF is generic and flexible enough to be applicable for variety of traditional learning systems and can help in seamless transformation decisions and execution.
Keywords: Learning, Digital Learning, Digital Functions, Digital Transformation, Learning Platforms, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Digital Transformation Roadmap, Digital Policy Prioritization, Design Structure Matrix (DSM).

India's National Security - Key Factors - 1998, 2004 and 2017 - Networks and Nature of Earfare

How to Evaluate National Security?

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) can be used as we described in our book.

India's National Security is impacted by the structural changes across many dimensions around the world.

1. In 1998, Feb, in a conference titled " Battle scene in Year 2020", I contributed 5 papers. From my paper titled Future of Warfare - Search for Military Doctrine - 5 high level factors that were perceived to impact India's National Security were 

(a) Power System (b) Technological Systems (c)  Economic-Commercial Systems (d) Geo-political system (e) Social System



2. In 2004, Feb, in my book" Strategic Decision Making - Applying the Analytic Hierarchy Process", these factors were expanded/modified to 6  high level factors that were perceived to impact India's National Security were 

(a) Power System (b) Technological Systems (c)  Economic-Commercial Systems (d) Geo-political system (e) Social System (f) Organizational Forms (emergence of Network form)




Use of AHP for national security evaluation as described in our book has been recommended by others (for example Here)  
3. In 2017, Nov, During the CUG-Carnegie Workshop on Strategic Issues for young scholars at Gandhinagar, these factors were expanded/modified to 7  high level factors that are perceived to impact India's National Security till the year 2025

(a) Power System (b) Technological Systems (c)  Economic-Commercial Systems (d) Geo-political system (e) Social System (f) Organizational Forms (emergence of Network form) (g) Changing Form of Warfare


In the last 20 years - one can see two main trends

(a) Emergence and prevalence of Network form of organization
(b) Nature of Warfare has changed drastically
