Towards a digital workplace strategy with Konica Minolta

There is a growing divide in working practice between what people want to do with information at work, and what organisations are able to offer. It is a divide often born from good reasons, such as security and cost effciencies, but also occasionally bad ones, such as ingrained cultures or narrow focus on the short-term. But whatever the cause, it only becomes possible to unlock new opportunities and create greater social value in a business through closing this divide.

To achieve this, Konica minolta is advocating a change in workplace practice, so that employees are enabled by technology rather than restricted by it. Konica Minolta’s belief is that companies need a composite design strategy. On the one hand, it must contain user-centred approaches to aid understanding of how advanced technology in workplace design can meet employee needs. On the other, there must be a system oriented design approach, to understand how technology should be created, sourced and deployed within the wider organisation, and the subsequent effects of doing so.
