If we look at percentages of the turnover that companies spend on ICT, we see an upward trend. Companies are digitising to the left and to the right, moving with the times. Digitising your organisation may sound like a lot of hassle, but it is also something that is inevitable. Of course, not everyone knows a great deal about technology and how best to digitise your organisation. Yet all this can be learned and ICT people can mean a lot here. Call in professionals and let them guide you well. Some time ago, the ICT department of an organisation was a separate and reasonably isolated department. With digitisation, it is precisely a department that is at the heart of the organisation.
Involve the staff
People are scared off by new things and big changes. The familiar goes away and that can cause a lot of fear and confusion. In order for digitisation to run as smoothly as possible, also within the team, it is important to create support among the users. By involving your staff in the changes and plans right from the start, everyone has time to get used to the idea. In this way, ideas and thoughts can be exchanged and the staff will not be passed over.
Digitisation for all organisations
From the very largest companies, to small non-profit organizations, all of them will eventually be digitized. Digitizing an organization means much more than just having everything on the internet. For example, digitised organisations are in close contact with customers. The line is much thinner, and communication is easier. In addition, data can be exchanged efficiently with other companies. Because everything is online, sharing is much easier. Much will also change in the area of the organisation within the company. Often there is a new layout and a digitized company has fewer management layers. There is also more room for decentralized leadership.
A long process
Digitizing your organization is not something that is done within a week. It is a process that requires a lot of attention. Does your company put a lot of energy into it, and is there effective leadership? Then the transition will yield an enormous amount of benefits. Both for the customers and for the organization itself, everything will become a lot more efficient. It is advisable to start the process by setting objectives. What exactly do you want to achieve with digitisation? This way you know where to work towards. Then make a clear plan and map out what has already been digitised in your organisation. Make agreements so that deadlines are met and the plan is worked on proactively. This provides more clarity and prevents digitisation from coming to a standstill. By planning the transition properly and accurately, you ensure that the process runs smoothly. And that is very important for both the organisation and the staff. This allows you to get off to a good start with your digitised organisation.
