Organisations are having to work ever faster to keep up with the pressures of an uncertain world. Internally, new technologies and ways of working are transforming how firms operate.
Increasingly, organisations are moving from a collection of free-standing ‘silos’ (such as intranets, document management, ERP, CRM) to a more coordinated digital workplace. But what does this look like in practice? We can help you create a concrete vision, and chart a course towards it.
The digital workplace consists of the holistic set of tools, platforms and environments for work, delivered in a coherent, usable and productive way.
But the digital workplace is easy to define … it’s journey that we should all be focusing on.
The changing nature of the modern workplace is presenting both challenges and opportunities:
- new technologies, such as social tools, are allowing staff to connect and collaborate
- information flows go from top-down, to two-way
- mobile devices are changing how we want to work
- senior management is driving change at an ever-greater pace
- untangling legacy systems and silos is hard
- without a common vision, projects are heading in many different directions
How we can help
We can help you get moving towards the digital workplace, by providing both inspiration and practical steps to take. This includes:
- Presenting a vision for the digital workplace, outlining the opportunities and possibilities, including real-world examples of what’s already been done.
- Creating a shared vision for your organisation, bringing stakeholders together to align needs and plans.
- Researching staff needs and opportunities, using practical research techniques to determine key needs and points of pain.
- Developing a DW strategy, outlining a pragmatic approach and roadmap for delivering on the digital workplace vision.
- Creating a plan for enterprise mobility, a key element of the digital workplace.
A few of our clients
What our clients say
I first met Catherine in 2011 when I was still fairly new to the world of intranets. Since then I have had the opportunity to work with her many times through membership of the Intranet Leadership Forum and as a supporter of several Step Two events. She is unfailingly generous with her knowledge and always fun to work with. Catherine has a wealth of intranet experience and is a skilled mentor who uses her vibrant personality to build connections across the intranet community. I recommend Catherine as a contact to anyone who is embarking on an intranet journey.

Let me start by saying that working with Steve is fantastic. He is able to get to the core of an issue even though presented with disparate groupings of information for varied people. He has provided a very positive approach and engaged all the staff in our organisation with the knowledge management project. This is also the first time in our organisation that we have ever had an external consultant come in that all staff have engaged with so positively and raved about. No issues raised or negative feedback what so ever. A minor miracle.
