Digitize Your Journey Mapping Processes

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend Forrester's journey mapping workshop in their San Francisco office. It was a great mix of content and group exercises to give everyone hands on experience mapping the journey of a customer. We had a pretty impressive journey map by the end of the afternoon!

How to Maximize the Productivity of a Multi-generational Workforce

Today’s workforce includes a variety of generational factions, from Baby Boomers, Gen Xers (like me!) and Millennials, all the way to those from the most recent cohort, dubbed “Gen Z.” On top of that, this particular 50+-year span encompasses a time characterized by unprecedented change in the workplace. Put it all together and it’s easy to see the enormous challenge CIOs now face: They must find solutions that satisfy not only different age groups, but also vastly different skill sets, experiences and preferences.

Optimizing Outcomes: Don't Overlook Your Collaborative Workflow

The word "collaboration" can conjure contrasting associations, depending on who you are and on your life experiences. Some of us may think of collaboration as a positive thing — a process in which we work with others (hopefully harmoniously) and, by virtue of the teamwork, create results that are better than we could have achieved on our own. Others may bristle at the word, because it brings up memories of forced committees and coalitions, often ending with results that are inferior to those we might have achieved on our own.

While I've experienced both, my feeling is that the more refined the processes and technologies involved, the better the chance that the outcomes will be positive. The bad news is that the above are often lacking.

Force Multiplier: Digital Dexterity Equals Better Business Results

Prysm is laser-focused on helping companies develop digital-transformation initiatives, because we understand that leaders in the digital space are also revenue leaders. Case in point: a McKinsey & Company study1 found that companies that wholeheartedly embrace digital technology — strategically, not just tactically   pull in, on average, five times more revenue than digital laggards. No small potatoes.

The New Meeting: It's a Verb, Not a Noun

Research* shows that today's employees can spend up to 80% of their workdays collaborating. As a result, meetings — our primary method of working together  — have become mere way points in an ongoing collaborative process. This is a major shift from the way we used to think about meetings, which we regarded as events with a beginning and an end.

Digital Transformation: Your Key to Market Success

Outperforming your competition in a rapidly changing business climate requires a trifecta of humility, adaptability, and agility.

Humility helps you realize that perfection is a moving target and that success requires continuous evaluation and adjustment. (Or, in the immortal words of the band Kansas, "If I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.") This honest assessment clears the path for the next two key performance indicators.
