Shaping the digital workplace – Aarhus

Shaping the Digital Workplace

April 20, 2017 – Aarhus

Most organisations still operate with what could be termed a classic intranet; a platform where content is published and static company information is stored. Despite the massive confusion surrounding the definition, every organisation today has a digital workplace; a plethora of platforms, tools, workflows and services – and the intranet is simply a part of this landscape. The challenges for those managing this landscape are many.

Learn from leading practitioners and experts and gain actionable insights for your own initiatives towards tomorrow’s workplace at this J. Boye masterclass on Shaping the Digital Workplace.

What you will learn

  • How to develop a sensible approach to SaaS and cloud – with the end goal of enabling employees to bring in their own tools and services to work – and to bring work onto their own devices
  • How to develop workable governance models for your organisations
  • How to successfully deploy emerging tools and services to increase productivity
  • How to determine and define what success looks like in this fragmented landscape; how do you set meaningful KPIs that can be measured and reported back to the business?

Topics covered

  • How do you structure, coordinate and present this landscape for dispersed workforce, so their employee experience is coherent and relevant to them and their work? And how do you enable and allow them to access relevant services from wherever they happen to work?
  • How do you manage the ever-growing mountain of content and data? And the demands from the business to instantly be able to find the right content – and turn just some this data into meaningful business intelligence that can be acted upon?
