93 percent of construction and real estate companies in Germany agree that at some point, the digital revolution is going to impact their entire work processes. But although they’re aware of this, actually digitizing their operations still presents a challenge. And then there’s the concern about job losses created by digital solutions. But interestingly, the German Economic Institute has shown that employment has been on the rise since 2018 thanks to digitization. Their study makes clear: New technological solutions create new tasks that in turn generate new competency requirements.

How is my work environment going to change?

Flexibility, being open to new things, and a willingness to learn are abilities that are taking on increasing importance in today’s era of digital transformation. Digital competence begins with an acceptance of modern technology. Project directors are not only the key implementers of digital projects, but those who profit the most from them as well. Their job is to create and maximize digital structures along with new processes within and across all projects.

It’s important that the project team has its own experiences with digital tools as well. This helps overcome the uncertainty and fear that might accompany organizational change, technological developments, or a complete re-working of existing processes. Project heads whose job it is to push a company’s business success will be surprised by the speed, certainty, and improved processes resulting from modern technology.

Question the status quo!

The project team needs to take a critical, honest look at the status quo before a new solution can be decided upon:

  • Which processes are not running smoothly, and could be accomplished even better by the use of software?
  • Are we currently using modern tools and software? Or are there other, better solutions that might even be easier to use?
  • Do we possess the right internal knowledge to evaluate digital solutions?
  • How intuitive is the new tool? How fast can the team learn and begin to effectively use it?
  • How can we successfully implement digital processes into the project?

Digitalization makes workflows easier. Software solutions should also be user-friendly. Don’t think for a minute that you and your team can’t get the hang of digital solutions! Modern software offers simple, easy-to-understand interfaces and personal support.
