Industrial Organisations are faced with many challenges: Meeting customer expectations, fluctuations in raw material costs, financial constraints and the ever-changing workforce dynamic.
These market drivers are not entirely new, some have been recurring since the first industrial revolution. What do we do at each revolution to address these drivers? We apply technology. However, if technology is the answer, then why are digitalisation initiatives failing? And why is it that industrial organisations have fallen behind the S curve?
We need to realise that;
(1) Digitalisation is not an end state, it is a Journey;
(2) Digitalisation is not just a technical journey, it is a commercial journey as well.
Proof of this can be found at Namibian Breweries Limited.
