Getting going with digital adoption

digital adoption image

A half day workshop for businesses seeking to use digital tools to help grow the business.   For example by:

  • Making it easier and quicker for customers to be served;
  • Finding more prospects & lifting the customer experience;
  • Speeding up tasks to be able to do more;
  • Reducing the amount of paper involved;
  • Freeing up time for more sales and marketing activity.

On completion of the workshop, Management Teams will:

Know how to plan for the adoption of digital tools  – to work out what’s needed and what’s possible, make the right choice from a large range of possible solutions, get clarity about the skills required, keep within the budget and time available.

Have a digital adoption plan in the making – progress limited only by the bounds of the workshop

Know how to complete any of the planning steps remaining – and have free on-line support to complete it for the following week (see below).

Programme outline:

Introduction to a Digital Adoption Planning Framework.

Define the objectives to be served.

Map the current process within which digital solutions are required.

Determine the value to be delivered and how it will be measured.

Identify the scope of work they will perform.

Determine how to research the digital options available.

Establish the budget and time required.

Identify the skills and potential support required.

Before the workshop:

Business managers will be invited to complete a survey of training needs that will aid the design of the workshop.  This will capture learning objectives, initiatives already underway, and areas of critical importance for the business.

After the workshop:

Delegates will receive free on-line mentoring support for one week following the workshop in order to complete the digital adoption plan.


For a half day workshop:  £360 plus VAT.

This price may vary depending upon the length of the workshop and whether there are specific requirements that need to be met.

The workshop can be presented in-person or on-line.  If in-person, travel and subsistence costs may be incurred.

If on-line mentoring support is required beyond the week following the workshop, this will be charged on an hourly basis.

    customer intelligence image

    Finding the right customers at the right time

    A workshop for teams wanting additional intelligence about customers and competitors that they can action in order to drive growth – and want a plan for the use of digital tools and data to help them get there. 


    • Sales and marketing activities are obvious drivers of growth.  They also make heavy use of data and digital tools.  Effective use, however, involves detecting significant events e.g. a switch in a trend, a change in sentiment, interest from a particular prospect – and knowing how to respond.  Within this workshop you will develop a plan that will deliver the additional intelligence needed.
    • You will define the intelligence objectives that need to met e.g. to identify new prospects, further sales opportunities, spot competitor threats, flag switches in sentiment. 
    • You will explore how data from different channels (e.g. social media, CRM, emails) can be harnessed to yield sales and marketing intelligence. 
    • You will discover how digital tools can capture the relevant data and how to explore it to reveal the intelligence hidden in the marketing noise. 
    • The outcome is a plan that lays out what you need, how it will work, and what you need to do.

    Delivering service quality at a competitive cost

    A workshop for teams seeking to improve the quality of service in order to deliver a greater return and attract more customers – and want a plan for the use of digital tools and data to help them get there. 


    • A reputation for excellent service is a driver of growth, as is the ability to charge a competitive cost.  Achieving both, however, requires smart use of data and digital tools.  Within this workshop you will develop a plan for reporting service quality and the full cost to serve, that will lead to the deployment of resources to enhance quality and steadily reduce costs. 
    • You will determine the best approach to measuring quality of service and the real margin earned from each customer;
    • You will explore ways to diagnose and resolve reasons for cost to serve being out of step with value delivered.  E.g. through automation to free time and speed up service fulfilment, AI to predict obstacles to successful delivery, analytics to optimise the way in which assets and people are deployed.
    • You will discover how to explore service delivery processes and operations for opportunities to use digital tools to increase performance, release time that can be focused upon better service delivery, and to capture data to aid ongoing diagnosis of service quality.
    • The outcome is a plan that lays out what you need, how it will work, and what you need to do.
    lean data image

    Using data to drive lean

    A workshop for teams using lean methods to reduce waste and improve productivity in order to deliver operational excellence – and who want a plan for the digital tools and analysis methods to get them there.


    • The drive towards lean operations involves resolving problems, reducing waste and finding gains in productivity – all key drivers of growth.  Measurement and diagnosis of performance are vital.  Within this workshop you will develop a plan for the use of data and digital tools for measurement and diagnosis in support of lean operations. 
    • You will explore how operational data can be collected and analysed to measure performance and to determine the incidence and causes of failure. 
    • E.g. detectors and digital tools can tell you which defects and errors are occurring, where, and at what frequency. Analytics can indicate whether this is a growing problem or not.  Machine Learning algorithms can identify whether particular features within the operational process are contributing to the problem.
    • You will discover how Machine Learning algorithms can help to diagnose the factors contributing to waste and failure.  Also how optimisation analytics can help you to maximise indicators of overall performance taking a wide range of operational and organisational features into account.
    • The outcome is a plan that lays out what you need, how it will work, and what you need to do.
