No industrial company in the world, no matter its size, will be able to sidestep digitalization. If you want to remain competitive, digitalization is not a question, it is a must!
Many of our customers ask us WHERE do you start your digital transformation journey? At which COST? What do you already have? What do you NEED? How can you distinguish the disrupting technologies from the nice-to-have for my business?
Here are my seven recommendations based on many conversations and projects we have done in the past.
Live Digitalization from the Top
e.g. no buy in from Management = no Digital Transformation.
Set up a Digitalization organization
e.g. Chief Digital Officer as a direct report to the C-level.
Communicate with your employees
e.g. regular town hall about the Digital Transformation strategy
Start small think big
e.g. take one of your production plant as a digital blueprint.
Partner with Global Technology player and innovative companies
Create your Digital Roadmap for the next years
– together with your partners.
Implement the roadmap
Many roadmaps are not implemented due to other priorities and the daily work.
