The CITB-funded Digital Transformation through Leaders project will fund 80 in-house Digital Strategy Days for construction companies across Scotland. Any construction company in the Civil Engineering supply chain is eligible.
The strategy days will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis so please get in touch as soon as possible.
Non-eligible companies can access this service as a Digital Strategy Day Plus package.
The structured trainer-led full-day workshop is designed for companies who are near the beginning of their digital journey. It should be attended by anyone who has a valuable contribution to make when considering how digital solutions can be integrated into business activities, for example:
- Quantity surveyors
- Site engineers
- Site managers
- Project managers.
The exact process will always be adapted to meet the needs of the company we are working with; as an example, though, it could be something like this:
Explore the possibilities of digital construction. Crunch some numbers on how various aspects of digital technology could benefit the company.
Benchmark where the company currently is in terms of software, hardware, equipment, skills, capabilities, vision, intention, growth capacity, reputation etc
Select a couple of possibilities and analyse in more detail including direct ROI as well as side benefits such as being able to tender for larger projects, attracting and retaining talent, reputation and relationships with clients, etc.
Create an actionable plan aligned with the company’s business plan which will lead to identifying resources, potential suppliers, potential partners/collaborators, timescales, financial goals, and a digital mission statement.
