DIGITAL STRATEGY & TOOLS
The old model of centralised corporate IT is not the right answer for the future firm. Digital strategy involves IT, but also sales and marketing, HR, knowledge and communications, and so forward-thinking firms are creating digital networks across the organisation.
Creating a model digital workplace is key to becoming more efficient and connected, and this provides a strong base from which to think about client-facing technology innovation, new products, services and platforms.
DATA & ANALYTICS
New technology is giving firms access to unprecedented amounts of data, which promises to change the way we practice accounting, audit, consulting and law. To take advantage of this, firms need data platforms, analytics and sense making tools and skills.
Within the firm, organisational data produced by internal tools and social networks can provide valuable diagnostic information about how well the organisation is performing for its employees and partners.
KEY SERVICE ELEMENTS
- Tech platform review
- User experience analysis
- Adoption barriers review
- Group & user research
- Use cases development
- Business use case alignment
- Comms campaign planning
- Action plan development
