Turning your utility company into a more agile and adaptable organization

The current business environment has made it abundantly clear that agility and adaptability are emerging as the most important characteristics utility companies can develop, not just to weather the current crisis, but to emerge with the ability to thrive in the digital economy. Companies need to be able to quickly pivot across the entirety of their business- from workforce transformation, asset maintenance, supply chain, production, and service. Clearly, the ability to rapidly adapt to changing business conditions is critical. The good news: it’s not too late to incorporate strategies and technologies that will allow you to create agile, adaptable, and resilient operations.

In this interactive round table discussion, facilitated by Avanade, you’ll have the opportunity to share input, ask questions, and hear from industry experts about how Utilities are meeting this challenge head-on. Topics of discussion will include:

  • How to facilitate successful Workforce Transformation
  • How modern business applications play a pivotal role in how to enable the digital field worker
  • How Utilities are leveraging advanced technologies such as Mixed-Reality, IoT, and Digital Twins to increase agility and adaptability
  • How Advanced Analytics and Artificial Intelligence provide greater insight and predictability

The Café Series is tailored to senior leaders responsible for operations, human resources, and service-related roles.  

Job titles include but are not limited to COOs, VPs, Heads, Directors, and General Managers responsible for Operations, Field Service/Operations, Customer Experience, Innovation, and the like.
