Webinar Recording: Getting the Most out of New Technology for Manufacturing and Mining

In the last few years, manufacturers and miners have placed a renewed focus on digitisation and automation. Many believe that new technology will be the silver bullet to solve safety, productivity and profitability problems. And yet many initiatives deliver a limited return on investment, and more often than we would like to admit, the impact is negative.

For this webinar we were joined by Hendrik Lourens, Owner, Stratflow who unpacked this paradox, reflecting on why technology initiatives fail and how to overcome implementation challenges. 

The webinar answers these key questions:

  • How do we take the company personnel (especially time poor managers), who will help with implementation and who will be using the information, along with on the journey?
  • If we cannot demonstrate the value of the initiative within a few months, the momentum and support of already loaded managers and employees will peter out.
  • This has implications for the sequence in which we digitise and how we involve our employees. What happens when the implementation ends and the implementors leave?
