The digital workplace is becoming a higher priority to more organisations in 2012. We have Jane McConnell’s Digital Workplace Trends 2012 report that gives you great research on what is happening. The London 2012 Olympics is forcing some of the most traditional organisations like banks to consider the digital workplace as employees work away from Canary Wharf for ‘flexi fortnight’ while the Olympics take place.
But how is the best way to manage this? How do you reduce that ‘dead time’ when people can’t work while out of the office? Why do employees have to go to their office building to work? How can you save your business money?
All these questions mean you need people with experience and strategic thinking to be involved in the strategy for a digital workplace.
I will use my experience with BT and helping other organisations develop digital workplaces to run a workshop at IntraTeam 2012 in Copenhagen on 28 February. This session will cover what is needed to have the right governance model for your digital workplace.
It will give you an overview on what is needed for the digital workplace to be managed so it brings benefits to the organisation, individuals and collectively, everyone. It should mean that ‘things feel better’ and encourage everyone to use the digital workplace.
By the end of the workshop you will understand the right level of governance needed for your organisation, balancing rewards to be gained while avoiding any risks.
Areas to be covered include:
- Ownership – who is responsible for developing the strategy, implementing the digital workplace and ongoing management of it?
- Consistency – what is the appropriate level of governance across your digital workplace?
- Standards – what are needed for a digital workplace?
- Integrity – do people have confidence when using information and tools in the digital workplace?
- What are the next steps you need to make?
I hope you will join me.
