The digital age is the 2nd machine age, the age where the machine becomes intelligent, empowered by artificial intelligence. However, humans still lead the machine. One of the leading causes of failure in digital transformation is leading with technology. This happens where an organization expects too much from technology and turns to new technology for each problem they face. As a result, too much technology either kills the transformation or delays it.
Creating Your 2nd Machine Age Technology Strategy allows you to manage the organization's technology so that the technology does not manage the people instead. It is about having control over the technology used and making the right decision at the different organization's growth phases.
This workshop allows leaders to overview all technologies in the organization, how they are used in different business units, and how to put them together to avoid duplicates and redundant technologies. This is an area where businesses often save money by eliminating waste and confusion that they did not see before this efficient technology strategy.
At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Create an entire organization technology strategy.
- Eliminate gaps and overlaps in technology that slow-down organizations.
- Understand their full technology approach.
- Determine the right technologies to invest in.
- Know how to choose the best technology and the right tools to support their business or organization's goals.
This workshop is scheduled for January 19th, 2021. For a private group, please contact us.
