There is so much buzz surrounding the importance of emerging technology, it can be overwhelming. Is an overarching tech upgrade to your facility necessary or even viable? Where do you start? How do you gain acceptance and begin the process? What should your expectations be? An article recently published in Facility Executive called “Preparing Facilities For The Inevitable Digital Transformation” does a good job of breaking down the most salient components to understanding all the trendy talk and information floating around and how it might realistically apply to your organization.
Author of the article, Bryan Christiansen, makes a great point by acknowledging that it’s a balance of knowing how to “think big” and provide leadership with long view as well as having a full grasp of the moving parts of the facility to ensure a plan is properly executed. It’s a big undertaking, but it’s also a big opportunity for you to take initiative and shine. Give it a read and let us know your thoughts!
