Once you found your right change partner, you will be able to draft a high-level vision of what your construction company can be, and develop a high-level road map for accomplishing your goals in terms of digital transformation. However, having a direction is not enough. Now, be careful to how you are going to share it internally.
First of all, share your vision and plan with your field workforce, partners and customers, and speak of it often. Indeed, digital transformation research consistently shows that vision and leadership from the top is an essential ingredient for success.
Another key ingredient is empowering digital change from the bottom up. If a construction management software is not embraced by the field, it will have absolutely no transformative value for your organization. It will be a waste of time and money. So, it is critical to choose construction applications and solutions which dovetail naturally with workers’ personal habits (e.g., social sharing and collaboration, mobile compatible technology), fit non-intrusively into their day-to-day routines, and yield some type of immediate gratification (for example, making something noticeably easier, faster, safer - or even simply more enjoyable).
This translates into getting mobile applications into the hands of field teams, and either supplying them with smartphones and tablets or supporting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies.
