Project Management for Global Digital Implementation Project
Industries running in solidarity are the thing in the past and with passing time the world is becoming flatter. Businesses today are more like sports where teamwork helps thrive together as well as at the individual level. All the industries are now undergoing a digital transformation. The presence of digital channels could transform the entire value chain, operations, services provided, and even after-sale services. Non-regulated, service, and product, industries have been early adopters of digital in every aspect, from ingredients to consumers, of their businesses. Regulated industries, like pharmaceuticals, alcoholic beverages, etc, are among the “late majority” segments of digital adoption. With changing demands, now, the regulated industries as well are looking to enhance stakeholders’ experience through digital adoption.
Lack of required expertise and resistance from the internal stakeholders, alongside the speed and scale at which implementation is expected across the organization, and that too globally is challenging. This is valid not only for regulated industries but also for non-regulated ones. Any such project management activity needs to be executed tangentially to the ongoing business activities without any disruption.
Working with contractual expert Project Managers, in the execution of such transformational projects, is the fastest way. Contractual project managers bring in a wide range of functional and industrial experience, alongside their global expertise, helping businesses grow and transform by meeting all the targets, deadlines, and expectations set forth them.
