Hybride: @LINKIT Headquarters or Online
18 Oct 14:45 - 17:30

We all know that the tech world rushes ahead if you don't innovate, your competitors will fly past you. Yet it is increasingly common that plans for innovation are put on the back burner because there is no capacity or time to develop further. The daily tasks take up too much time for the employees, so there is no room to take on the innovation.

By automating repetitive work, productivity and quality can be increased. Employees have more time for important things like innovation and professional development. As an extra bonus, this means that the employees end up in the right place, which also improves retainment. There are countless advantages of automation, but implementing it is not as easy as ABC. There is a lot involved in this, but we are happy to help you with that.

During this event we will take you step by step through the process of setting innovation in motion in your company. We start at the beginning; how do you make this jump together with your organization? Together with us, Christiaan Konstapel dives into the first principles of innovation. For example, he wonders: When do we make the leap? What does it bring? What are the risks? What are the foundations we need to have in terms of capabilities and data? After this, Dick takes over to explain everything about the moment you decide to jump. Here he explains the advantages of automation and if you have everything in-house to get started? Do I have the people for it? All in all, how do I get the right preparation. What do you need to reap the benefits later? All of this will be told by using use cases and his own experience over the years. In the end Laurent will conclude by discussing the landing after the jump, based on his own experiences, how do you make sure everything goes in the right direction?

The event takes place at the LINKIT HeadQuarters (Rijnzathe 9 de Meern) or online at a location that suits you better. Let us know how you would like to join the event during registration. When you visit our office you can enjoy a delicious snack and drink, so it would be lovely to see you there!
