Digitalization offers huge potential to rapidly change the way of doing business and significant productivity gains, however it also poses managing challenges that may limit many companies’ abilities to realize these benefits. We work with our clients from early stages of Road Map development through to the implementation of effective solutions that deliver real benefit.
We have a strong track record of assisting clients in capital intensive industries to real significant improvements in productivity through the design, development and adoption of digital solutions. Most of our clients are incumbents within their industry but are aware of the need to change and adopt to ensure they remain as leaders in their sector.
Technology is an important aspect of digital transformation, and our business alliance with AWS (Amazon Web Services) enables us to partner with leading technology solution providers to ensure our clients can rapidly leverage any new emerging technologies such analytics, image recognition, 3-D printing, RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and others.
However we believe that the technology is only one aspect of successful digital transformation, clients must also embrace the new skills and positions required to be successful in a new digital age, this requires significant investment in people development to provide employees with the necessary skills for a digital future, often this can mean confronting difficult questions related to the changing nature of work.
this is where our deep change management experiences enables clients to ensure that not only do they have the people with the right skills but that the whole organization is ready to embrace the changes that come with digital transformation.
The final component for success digital transformation requires that client must be ready to embrace new management systems, from our experience digital is enabling many of the LEAN principles to be enhanced and realized at a more rapid pace, some examples of this is the emergence of agile management as a key component of any digital success, the improved visibility and immediate flow of information mean significant changes to the existing Value Streams and the way we address problems.
In Mining for example clients are much more able to “swarm” when a problem occurs to find the optimum solution by rapidly bring together the people with the best skills to solve the problem, much like what was done in the Toyota Production System, where this was easier to implement within the confines of a factory but now across wide and dispersed Mine Sites the same principles can now be applied as a result of the digital technologies.
Underlying our services for digital improvement is the core believe that all changes should deliver positive and significant benefits for the business and its employees, and particular as we enter the digital age it is even more important to ensure that the digital solutions are addressing real business issues.
