Digital Advantage

Digital technologies can help businesses achieve enhanced productivity, capacity for innovation and better working lives. But how do you achieve organisational and workforce readiness for digital innovation? And how do you make it work for your organisation?

The Digital Advantage Programme can make all the difference.

Investment in new technologies increased during each of the last three recessions. It is likely to do so again in the economic downturn after the COVID-19 crisis.

What will Digital Advantage do for me and my business?

Together with our international partners we’ve been analysing research and leading practice from across Europe to create a unique programme.

Digital Advantage helps you achieve successful digital innovation, personal learning and development, and peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing.

Digital Advantage will guide you through the roadmap to successful and sustainable digital innovation, demonstrating how to:

  • Be clear about what you want to achieve, ensuring that digital innovation is fully aligned with company values and strategy.
  • Embed employee involvement in innovation within the DNA of the organisation, building workforce receptiveness to digital change.
  • Align new technologies with the whole production or service delivery process, recognising the importance of interdependent variables.
  • Understand hidden assumptions about working practices built into the design of technologies, ensuring alignment with your values.
  • Maximise the synergies between human and digital potential, building on the tacit knowledge, skills and creativity of your workforce.
  • Involve employees affected by new technology in its procurement and implementation to reduce avoidable obstacles and mistakes.
  • Upskill people to manage technologies in house and to take on self-management roles associated with leaner and flatter organisational structures.
