Abstract: The objective of this paper is to present essential developmental principles for the development of digital maturity model for SMEs. Our initial findings provide insights into concept and methodological principles of developing a digital maturity model for SMEs. Our primary findings show that there are significant concept and methodological deficiencies evident in the existing maturity model for SME literature. These deficiencies have limited SMEs’ ability to use a validated digital maturity as an important way to promote strategic digital transformation and ultimately provide them with a proven digital direction. The paper offers an important concept and methodology challenges on what needs to solve. Furthermore, the paper outlines an appropriate research methodology to advance this research field.
