As a digital project manager, I have a front-row seat at one of the most exciting events taking place here at Stahl: our digital transformation program. Since joining the Digital Transformation team just under a year ago, I’ve seen us take giant leaps forward with several innovative projects. New digital tools and solutions are helping us become more agile and efficient in terms of how we work together – but also more human.
Defining digital transformation
Digital transformation can mean anything and everything. At Stahl, it’s about using new technologies to experiment, rethink old operating models, and respond with greater agility to the needs of our customers and markets.
Nowadays, most organizations are involved in a digital transformation in some way. COVID-19 has been a game-changer: many of the old ways of working were often unproductive and possibly unsustainable, and the pandemic has disrupted that system.
We’ve seen new “sharing” tools enhance our lives: MS Teams, SharePoint, geolocation, and social networks, to name but a few. Because information can be accessed anytime and anywhere, collaboration has suddenly become a whole lot easier. A meeting can be organized in three short clicks; no need to take a plane or car.
A new way of working
By adding these new ways of working to an already strong business model, we can capture emerging opportunities in our markets and deliver more value to our customers. But digital transformation is not only about technology; it’s also about people. At Stahl, we have different teams working behind the scenes to give employees access to the right tools and create the best possible conditions for them to do their job. See details.
