Many organisations were simply not prepared for the COVID19 global pandemic, and it represented a crisis for many organisations with a lack of infrastructure or planning for a distributed workforce. It has however highlighted the need for Digital Transformation as a business-critical evolution. The organisations that we work with are at different stages of digitising their workflow, but those that embrace it will be more agile, see reduction to their operational costs and be better at achieving environmental targets.
Many organisations pride themselves in being an innovative business, and use digital content from lots of different types of media, including that from the internet and also video. Most organisations that we work with are aware of the importance of business productivity and are looking for ways to implement efficiency gains within the day-to-day of getting business done. They have a general desire to find ways of making efficiency and cost savings within their business. However, up until now many are still using analogue methods to collaborate with. Digital Transformation means moving away from dry-erase whiteboards, sticky post-it notes, paper flip charts and print outs to make meetings happen. You should no longer have to type up minutes from a meeting, actions should be captured digitally during a meeting and shared instantly to all attendees. The most significant factor now is the need to connect, share and collaborate with your remote project teams. Effective collaboration with remote attendees to meetings should be as timely, visual and interactive as in-room participants. Their immediate contributions will save time and money.
