Digital workplace fundamentals

1 October 2013

This report suggests a blueprint for launching a successful digital workplace initiative anchored on two key prerequisites, namely scope (what is included) and approach (how it is delivered). Among the key takeaways highlighted in this report are:

  • The digital workplace permeates all aspects of working life. It affects technology, physical workplaces and people. Changes made in one area may result in changes in another.
  • Cross-functional teams increase the chances of a project successfully meeting its outcomes.
  • The benefits of a cross-functional delivery team include access to expert knowledge, discovery of project-critical information and better ways of working going forwards.
  • While most organizations involve senior leaders as stakeholders in their digital programmes, as well as IT, HR and Marketing, Real Estate functions tend to be under-represented.
  • Many organizations do not have representation from key stakeholders on the delivery team itself.
