[Podcast] Remote Working - Start Small, Grow Big
The workplace in 2021 will demand a different set of skills. Now more than ever, organizations need to embrace disruption as a springboard for competitive advantage and adopt new ways of working that invigorate organizational performance. The needed capabilities include the ability to leverage remote work as an advantage, increase information agility, and drive business growth despite these challenging times.
That is the subject of this AIIM On Air interview with Martin Birch. Martin is the CEO and President of ibml and a member of the AIIM Leadership Council. We discuss the pressing need for increased information agility and the adoption of new ways of working that embrace work-from-home. In the midst of a pandemic and historic economic disorder, most organizations are coming to recognize how critical high-performance teams – however virtual – are to their organization’s continued success.
Martin suggests that one way organizations can move forward is to “start small” by adopting cloud-based solutions and approaches for a limited application, then expand the scope of the solution to other critical business processes. He gives some specific steps to take and describes some use cases that demonstrate the value and success of the approach.
The future of work is today. It’s no longer business-as-usual; new ways of working are needed. Organizations that embrace the disruption and leverage the ability to change as an advantage, not a roadblock, will be the ones that come out ahead. Listen to this episode of AIIM On Air for valuable advice and perspective.
