Digital transformation is the change that happens when digital technology is applied, enabling businesses to redesign their processes, deliver services, move effectively or develop entirely new business models. This can have a major impact on organisations and may only be successful if they embrace the wider challenges this creates, such as cultural changes, workforce transformation and leadership opportunities.
Embracing and exploiting digital transformation is critical for growth and competitiveness. Our research into what makes an effective digital transformation journey and our work guiding others along the transformation road has enabled us to develop what we believe are the key areas to be addressed for a successful digital transformation programme.
Watch the first of our digital transformation video series which follows our ten steps to digital transformation process. In the first video, we discuss how the fourth industrial revolution will impact the modern organisation and how business leaders need to embrace digital transformation to adapt to this change.
In our digital transformation podcast series, we talk to experts from across BMT about each of the areas in the ten step journey to digital transformation that we have created to help clients achieve a successful transformation.
We explore innovations, insights and ideas relevant to the defence and security industries, organised into themed series, so you can easily discover the content most relevant to you. Conversational and informative, we draw on our professional engineering, asset management and programme management experience to discuss the problems of today and explore the ideas of tomorrow.
In this episode of our new podcast series, we talk to Richard Westgarth, Head of Campaigns at BMT about digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution. We talk about how the dynamic if not turbulent future we’re facing is going to start to fundamentally change modern organisations and how this rate of change may catch some organisations by surprise.
Innovation is at the heart of digital transformation. In episode 3 of our series on digital transformation we discuss the importance of creating a culture of innovation and what it takes to achieve this, including the impact of leadership, investment, processes, and people.
