Let’s get digital: Transitioning to a new way of working

Change opens opportunities for innovation but for some it can be daunting; yet if companies don’t adapt and keep up with the wider industry, they will suffer. However, change brings opportunities for improvement and growth… as long as you can get everyone on board!

The last couple of decades has seen a huge change in the construction industry, with a huge push towards digitalising our workflows and delivery. At Max Fordham, we have found the largest challenge in starting to digitalise our workflows has been convincing the senior management that it will benefit the Practice and it was the right thing to invest in.

In this talk we will cover how we convinced our senior management that they should be embracing the digital age and how we have started to implement these changes, including:

• Starting with the easiest wins with a small amount of investment before moving to the more ambitious, including the development of bespoke tools.
• How we tried to make the change as easy as possible and support everyone to adopt the new ways of working.
• We will look at how we have automate mundane tasks, giving engineers more time to be creative.
• We will touch on the issues we have experienced, cover tips and tricks we have discovered, and show how to maintain tools and resources once they are out in the ‘wild’, including taking on feedback from engineers to make their experiences better.


Three Key Points:

• How to transition a company with multiple offices to a new, digital way of working

• How to structure your development priorities, their delivery and provide training and support

• How to maintain these new workflows and solutions whilst still developing new ideas
