Confused about the methodology to use on you project?  Unclear about the role should your PMO play?  Do you have the right skills to plan the project?  Are you clear how you will manage the risks?  What ROI or improvements are you expecting to achieve?  Are your resources aligned to deliver them?

Recession smackdown – what are you automating?

Gartner predicts, “69% of routine work currently done by managers will be fully automated by 2024.”

What can and should be automated?  Where in IT have you automated?  Where are your processes and responses slow?  What is repetitive or manual?  Are you ready?   

Artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots, machine learning, and quantum computing are all the buzz today.  Everyone is trying to chase the shiny keys. Yet, there seriously easy, low hanging fruit opportunities in most companies.  The issue is not if it is there.  The issue is why it is not prioritized yet?  There is money on the table, and in this time of crisis and fear of recession, we can help you quickly identify what to automate.  Instead of focusing on what “to cut,” maybe focus on “what to automate?” You will end up with better results.

We get this because we have been where you are.  We sat in the C-suite during the last recession. This time, technology has evolved.  There are real opportunities to automate throughout your business. Tasks that up until now, you may have thought were not worth it.  We challenge you on that. The companies that are going to pull forward, and win, will be those that automate their repeatable and manual processes, and put their humans in roles that add value and service. 

Curious about what your company’s real status on automation is?  We can help.
