RPA Business Case (1-part): Direct and indirect net-benefits -Considering transformations
RSS feeds WordPress
January 20, 2023
One of most relevant tool to enable decision-making about RPA, is the Business case.
Compared to the classic templates and adaptations, what often does not emerge is the holistic consideration of what we can call Indirect net benefits, the net benefits of People-centric approach, and the time when a firm can reap these indirect net benefits.

In a business case these factors have the role of mediators of the direct costs and benefits which as they are mentioned now, can reveal themselves misleading.
This is the first part of RPA business case .

Business continuity with new management solutions: Why is “do nothing” still the approach to a changing environment?
RSS feeds WordPress
January 10, 2023
This post tries to understand the mismatch between firms, new management solutions, and business environment reality. I perceive some factors that create an unsafe situation of “doing nothing”. And, being a curious person, I decided to investigate directly. There are two sides to investigate: experts who can support firms and the firms themselves.

What is your people centric level to get the adoption of digital tech?
RSS feeds WordPress
January 08, 2023
Adapting to a disruptive and rapidly changing business environment requires careful consideration of stakeholders’ behaviour. It emerges from a wide range of research that most technological introductions follow a process known as task orientation. An organisation’s behaviour can be seen as a result of its people orientation.

PEOPLES focuses on individual cause-and-effect logic, not maturity levels since every company is unique. We think that having statistical data about root causes and effects will not help leaders move forward when talking about People-centric.

Ask yourself: How people-centric is your company ready? What are the risks that you can mitigate or better remove?

January 06, 2023
Critical elements for a supporting and sustaining culture for RPA?
1. RPA is not a one-time fix, It requires maintenance.
2. Continuous improvement means open to experiment with modern processes and technologies
3. Collaborative culture
4. Adaptability: a culture that is open to change and adaptability.
5. Employees development: RPA can only be fully realized when there are skills and knowledge to work with technology.
6. Company’s climate: engagement level, enthusiasm, challenges acceptable which can help the behaviour of employees to adapt and change and support

Struggling to adapt to continuous changes in business environment: old-fashioned management style, or unmanageable disruption?
RSS feeds WordPress
December 28, 2022
In the recent past it emerged the failure of the current hierarchical and bureaucratic management model with incapability to fully react and adapt as a normalisation process to the new business environment.

People have been the most evident failure of this model including great resignation and quite quitting; on the other side we need to give justice to current management educated and grown in these environments which were fine before the last disruptions ( COVID, technology).

it is not easy to embrace radical changes while there is focus only on getting things done using what is in the culture and practice in that moment.

Human-machines (bots) Interaction Design: Why so crucial for TECH effectiveness and Culture?
RSS feeds WordPress
December 26, 2022
There are some points which must be considered in promoting Human-Automation (PRA) Design:

1. The present integration levels between people and automation at work can be summarised in an imbalanced low knowledge level for automation and a juvenile enthusiasm for technology.
2. The human-centred design promotes buy-in and improves technology’s efficiency and effectiveness
3. Design help to mitigate the unbalanced relationship between processes’ efficiency and normalisation ( flexibility and future adaptation to a changing business environment
4. Scalability needs and opportunities: it is the consequence of point 3.

Without forgetting the impact on Business culture related to Human-centric approaches, flexibility values supporting change and innovation to be coherent with company culture and, finally, Learning and experimentation culture elements

There has been a wide discussion about the adaptability and flexibility elements necessary to be competitive in the future. However, due to the slow adoption of approaches to get there, these questions arise:
* Why from 2012 very little has been done?
* Why 2012 is considered as the year of reference?
* Did we waste time or procrastinated for too long?

RPA Implementation strategy: Classic approach VS Rapid cycle projects
RSS feeds Wordpress
December 12, 2022
RPA -Robotic Process automation according to predictions from McKinsey, BCG, and Gardner, it can be expected that its utilisation will increase to 18–29 % in the following years.
What type of implementation strategy could be the best fit considering both organisations and culture types, hasn’t been confirmed yet. This awareness post compares the classic approach and the rapid cycle projects. Why? An implementation impacts project activities like Assessments, Requirements gathering, Goals and benefits, Manage change, but also the crucial ones are the baseline of the future utilisation in terms of productivity and flexibility: Digital competencies, Culture shift and adaptation, Learning and digital competencies.

People-centred culture. ” We make people before we make cars” -Toyota
RSS feed from WordPress
November 22, 2022
We think that a common pillar that is the baseline for all the transformational and Business continuity activities, is to have a people-centred culture.

We believe that cultural changes happen when the new company’s roles can support change behaviours.

We also believe that accomplishing a cultural change is not Leaders’ responsibility. Instead, it is their job to help change the culture by developing everyone in a well-ordered manner (with a process).

To uniform the needs and the capabilities of a company for having an appropriate culture, We have created, tested and utilised ourP EOPLES framework for a People-centred culture
PEOPLES framework is the Transforage appraisal of Leadership, Innovation and adaptation, culture, and Change capabilities with an integrated view of alignments or misalignments to help the top to reflect and learn and proceed further supporting people in their learning looking at Digital transformation, Enterprise agility, Resilience building.

Why are clients keen to accept introducing PRA- Process Robotic Automation?

October 26, 2022
Following a recent experience with the acquisition of two new clients, medium-sized companies with back-office automation, what emerged is that there are elements that require a consultancy activity to first remove the confusion based on Jargons, distinction between AI and RPA, between BPM and RPA.
Secondly to sense make the connections between culture, efficiency and customer centricity and RPA.
and make the last connection with VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) and High levels of digitalisation.

Digital transformation is claimed to be risky because technology is seen as predominant over culture and people and lacks a proper strategy or is wrongly transferred and disconnection from the company's Business strategy and goals.

It could be considered as the Columbus egg from Tech.
Low or No-code are not new technology, but it is not spread already.

1 Technology
Low and No code Digital applications

Date : September 14, 2022

Building applications with no-code platforms have become increasingly popular because they are fast, cheap, and virtually dependent on no-coding skills. Digitalisation's future is firmly anchored in no-code technology today.
It is becoming increasingly common for end-users to develop their applications without relying on coders; a lack of coders’ resources and skill sets are further contributing to this.

Currently, there is no standard for what qualifies as a no-code platform. No-code platforms still need some time to replace core systems, becoming the only way applications are developed. Coding will only be needed to create and enhance no-code platforms. Digitalisation is likely to be costly for businesses that ignore the no-code wave compared to their peers.
