We are in the midst of the most rapid, profound change mankind has ever experienced – propelled into a future shaped by technological advances, where certainties of the past are now replaced by ambiguity, big questions and a steady hum of technology.
Ways of working we have taken for granted for years are either fast disappearing or have gone, in its place, much less knowable, less understandable future – a fragile scenario most of us find pretty difficult to grasp.
Your organization’s future, what does it look like? A grand plan to future-proof it? Identified what must change yet? How long that will take (and at what cost?) Are your leaders and teams prepared well for coming augmentation (for what else is just around the corner?)
Accelerated digitization widens gaps in capabilities and performance; between the digital leaders and laggards. How, why, where and when people work has never been more open to individual interpretation.
What about all those projects? Can the team precisely identify economic scenarios (are you certain the business isn’t missing out on something which turns out to be critical?) Or inadvertently introducing projects which create a screaming cacophony of risks, and leave your managers overwhelmed and unable to act?
Time is now for a total rethink about the way work gets done in organizations; for altered business models, culture and skills, even the brand, in response to those mounting pressures.
Fortunes of business are now less than certain, and as we rocket towards a new employment epoch; gives rise to anxieties, new uncertainties (and opportunities) all which need the team’s attention and management.
So, some more tough questions:
Are you making the big moves yet? Shifting to new ways of work; how’s that going for you? Is the business being steered competently in the direction of workplace evolution? Really, how well is the organization balancing disappearing jobs, new roles and reskilling?
Are value-creation opportunities being managed? Execs taking full advantage of opportunities out there? Of people’s differing skill sets, perspectives, and strengths? In other words, your business is building resilience now? Are performance interventions balanced with flexibility (both operational and financial) to enable faster decision-making?
Successfully managing to lock in that post-cycle growth, dynamic resource re-allocation; do you see uptake/productivity improvement? Rationally assessing uncertainties faced: cognisant of changes in internal/ external environments so the organisation can fare materially better than the rest?
Uncomfortable questions we know – because this is what we do…. Help organizations along the transition path, and introduce key principles of ‘good work’ so people thrive.
Innovation and entrepreneurship are at the heart of economic growth and development; as are entrepreneurial mindsets. We help businesses to drive transformation through technology innovation and their people. Essentially, guiding organizations to “lean out” and reshape the competitive dynamics in far-reaching ways….
Ability to innovate is exactly what sets your organization/business/people apart.
Non-intrusive approach to automation which sets careful expectations of tools, and their use, opportunities for your people as “swivel chair integrators” – in support of digital transformation and your business’ wider automation strategy.
Fresh thinking and activities to boost productivity; move from the archaic, outmoded approaches into a workplace that us more energetically charged and capitalising on horizontal, cross-functional digital innovation and execution. To identify, quantify the opportunities to use RPA for revenue-generating activities; where to direct attention at overcome cost pressures and constraints. Getting past limitations of traditional performance approaches (…..so typically centered around headcount, costs, compliance).
Advanced technology efforts require the engagement of people in multiple parts of the organisation. Breaking with silos, better understanding (and direction) of priorities and bringing together specific expertise required across the business. Notwithstanding, an optimal structure/culture to support this, and operational flexibility through variable contracts/diverse supply sources/platforms/portfolios that share components across product lines and parts.
