Digital transformation, the right way
Digital transformation is a phrase that has been thrown around a lot in the last five years. More companies are focused on bringing their operations up to speed with the latest digital trends, but how successful has it all been? How has your business’ digital transformations really impacted your productivity? Have you implemented a system, only to have team members ignore it or continue to use the old methods? Has your executive team bought into the new changes? Are your colleagues sold?
Digital transformation is not an overnight thing. It takes a long time and you need a strategy in place. Imagine what you want your end goal to be. How do you want your colleagues working? Do you imagine an open plan office, with flexible working and everyone using laptops and cloud based software? Will you need to make changes to your current space to make these changes a reality? Are you possibly biting off more than you can chew?
It’s hard to convince an executive team that you need to completely gut their office to make a change towards efficiency when they only see the sticker price. It will shock them, and they will not hear the reasons why, as businesses do not want to spend money on changes that they cannot see making a bigger difference. This is why it’s important to start small and report your progress.
Start with a small department that can manage a shift in workflow easily. Track how long it takes for them to currently work, and as their department is digitally transformed, report your findings. When your executive team can see that efficiency means a healthier bottom line, their confidence in the transformation plan grows. Once members of the team understand how the new system better supports their work loads, they will easily buy into it and everyone will be eager to change.
People are naturally finding more efficient ways of working. Having dedicated spaces designed for certain activities is key, such as private meeting rooms for confidential meetings, booths for phone calls and video chats, intimate sofa areas for one on ones, and open plan spaces for working with access to ample power plugs. Remote working is only one of those ways, but as our world morphs towards more task driven days, rather than a time-restricted days, production levels will skyrocket.
