Build a Digital Workspace Strategy

Ensure people spend less time searching, more time getting work done while working remotely.

  • IT must figure out what a digital workspace is, why they’re building one, and what type they want.
  • Remote work creates challenges that cannot be solved by technology alone.
  • Focusing solely on technology risks building something the business doesn’t want or can’t use.

Critical Insight

Building a smaller digital workspace doesn’t mean that the workspace will have a smaller impact on the business.
