Founder and managing director of Can Do GmbH, Thomas Schlereth, reports in a current article in Digitale Welt Magazin about the changed world of work in the age of digital transformation, about the importance of skills for corporate success and why home office is the new norm.
With the experience of the past and the observations of the now, a company can plan for the future and react extremely quickly to changes. A prerequisite for this is the creation of certain structures that enable it to deal with the complex and dynamic diversity of the digital age. Above all, planning scenarios change every second. Calculations are simulated, the most probable cases are assumed and classical planning is replaced by manual gathering of information. There is only one solution for this: collaborative systems.
As a result of the corona pandemic, the pressure on companies to work with these systems and make them available has increased immensely. Home offices, video conferencing, technical cloud platforms and much more are now just as indispensable as the fully automatic coffee machine in the office. These systems are certainly not new, they have simply not been used up to now. Now, within a few months, they have turned out to be a lifesaver for many companies.
What is important in a changing world of work:
- Good planning is based on a good overview of resources. It doesn't matter which industry a company is active in, because the fact is: without competent resource management, planning will never be successful!
- The right know-how also plays an essential role in progress and innovation. No matter how innovative and groundbreaking a planned project may be, without the right know-how you will fail at the latest when it comes to implementation. It is therefore important to find out what skills are already available and how to close any gaps in knowledge as quickly as possible.
- A look into the future must not be forgotten either. Therefore, the HR department should focus on skills. Employees should consider what knowledge might be in demand now and in the future, and whether they are prepared to continue their education and learning throughout their lives. AI-supported planning software can easily combine the views of a company and its employees.
