Fortify: Is your organisation poised to take advantage of technology’s growing democratisation?
Pick one area where you can begin experimenting with technology democratising solutions – test this in non-critical environments, such as in back-office functions. Identify what tools your organisation may already have access to, or what additional investments need to be made, to power grassroots innovation.
Extend: How are you training your workforce to think like technologists?
Invest in technology literacy and training programs to empower workers with new skills recognising their varied time availability and prioritisation possibilities. This includes upskilling your current technology workforce and teaching employees the “business of tech” by ensuring plans to adopt democratised technologies are accompanied by training for security, governance and more.
Reinvent: How can democratised technologies make IT groups more effective—and vice versa?
Establish voluntary teams to support and guide the use of democratised technologies across your organisation. Try using technologies like low-code platforms to bridge the gap between the operational and technical sides of your organisation so that the workforce truly embraces tech innovation and makes it "theirs."
