Making Use of Technology to Make People Think SMART
In an ever-changing world, it is more important today than ever before to look to the future and to see what change looks like. Not only do we have to ask ourselves what the immediate impact of the change will be but also what the long-term effects of that change will alter, whether it be financially, socially or ecologically.
Over the past two years I have been developing this new approach in Saudi Arabia, a place that is not known for its technical capability but a country that is changing and changing rapidly. Through a change in strategy and a new coordinated approach to project and product management, the Saudi Government has started to look to the future, setting its goals on a new Saudi with a new vision by 2030.
As part of this strategy, they have changed their views and focus on what and how project and product management should be managed and through the help of a new framework and an adaptable sustainability model, these concepts and visions are starting to materialise.
I will take you on a journey, which shows how this change has occurred, what it now means to the country and how the lessons learned from this project can benefit you and your organisations to Think SMARTTM.
Taking what has been traditionally an emotive subject and making it more measurable and tangible, with the SMART Modelling technique the Saudi Government is starting to realise it does not have to rely solely on oil for its future revenues, stabilising its own finances and making great strides with regards to social inclusion and ecological awareness by looking at what it does before it begins.
The final closure of the lecture has been designed in cooperation with a colleague of mine, Britta Eremit. Within this section of the lecture we will demonstrate how you can navigate “Company & People” in a balanced and successful way through these times of permanent CHANGE. This will include how you can inspire your teams and leaders to deal naturally with external and internal influencing factors of CHANGE (Digitalization, Re-Structuring, Project- and Process Management etc.) and how these factors interact with each other and how to co-design the CHANGE process constructively.
In my short time with you I will try to share with you the challenges we have found with digitalization and what the impact has been on the working environments, how it will now change due to the digitalization tool and what kind of process management and soft skills are required to deal with this change both successfully and effectively.
I hope you will join me for this wonderful evening where I can share my experience of not only the project and the changes but of a strange and mysterious country that is beginning to rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
It is going to be my pleasure to inform you, perhaps surprise you but most of all, entertain you.
