Digitalization is fundamentally changing the entire world of work. Working from anywhere, exchanging data and knowledge at any time, meeting in virtual rooms, while using cloud solutions and modern communication tools – this is how tomorrow's working world looks. In order to work in an agile and efficient way, processes in companies need to transformation. Now is the time to start engaging in New Work, with the goal of promoting collaboration and communication among employees.
In the new world of work, it is necessary to establish agile workflows, communicate virtually and think digitally so as to establish new business models and to adapt to changing customer needs. To achieve this, companies must transform their organizational structures: Data and knowledge must be available anytime, anywhere. Team members must react quickly and flexibly to new tasks and be able to interact with colleagues. This works best in well-orchestrated, lean teams. This is also why the new, open working environment is characterized by small, agile units. It doesn't have to happen overnight for this to be achieved. However, it is necessary to have a step-by-step change in culture, working processes, hierarchies and the structures as well as the implementation of flexible workplaces. We have already successfully implemented the Company Rebuilding approach at T-Systems within Detecon and are also supporting our customers in this endeavor.
