Is your organization ready for robots?
Are you equipped to ensure a successful implementation from a people perspective?
Is the current workforce capable of operating new equipment, and how does job roles and structures change when introducing robot automation?
More and more businesses are considering or have already decided to automate internal processes with physical robots. However, the pitfalls are many, when you plan to have individuals and robots working side by side.
There are many challenges keeping organizations away from success with robot projects.
Finding qualified people and becoming self-sufficient within automation is now a key topic for many. Instead of relying on external suppliers, they want to build up their in-house expertise.
Also, we see many examples of organizations and employees that do not necessarily welcome their new robot colleagues with excitement and open arms. Often, fear and uncertainty from employees lead to sabotage and obstruction of new technical solutions with the result that the robots never get a chance.
If the organization is not brought along on the automation journey from the start, automation investments may be at risk partially or in full.
The most successful implementations of robot technology happen when the organization is carefully consulted and supported through training and education.
The first step is an in-depth assessment of the organizational readiness for automation. The assessment helps identify focus areas for organizational improvement that will increase the success rate of future automation projects.
Based on the outcomes of the readiness assessment, we carefully draft the Automation Change Plan for introducing automation in the organization. Such a plan would include details on how to engage, train and empower the directly affected workers and leaders, as well as the suggested communication approach to the teams and the broader organization.
Finally, building the robotics and automation capability in the organization is vital for sustaining change in the long run. Automation is in many cases a lever for implementing changes in the process flow, job roles, and organizational structures, which also may require information and upskilling in new ways of working in connection with robot implementations.
