At the platform level…

Organisations need to strengthen the connected fabric of the organisation by building out their digital workplace. But they need to go much further if they want to create platforms capable of supporting the data, AI, algorithms and smart systems they need to become truly adaptive.

A key challenge for any organisation looking to shift from a traditional hierarchy to a more connected and agile way of working is to develop the platform that connects and coordinates people and their work.

This starts with the digital workplace as a key connecting layer, but to really become the place where work happens, an organisational platform needs to also include services, data, algorithms and other Intellectual Property that makes up the value creation process.

Some of the fastest growing firms today are platform businesses that automate repeatable processes as services and algorithms that others within the organisation can build on to create value for customers.

As pioneers of the use of digital workplace technology, we are hugely experienced in helping organisations design, build and integrate work platforms to reduce their reliance on hierarchical management, benefit from automation and increase agility.
