Our Workshop Technology Deployment: How to get it done and maximise outcomes! is based on over 20 years of strategic and hands-on experience with technology deployment. We understand what it takes to get technology deployed, including all change management aspects. During these sessions we share key insights on the industry best practices that address the most pressing business challenges as well as discuss the tools and processes to optimise your workflow. Participants will then get a chance to apply the learnings in small group exercises.
A workshop for suppliers focuses on better positioning their technologies to facilitate uptake by end-users, thereby increasing business revenue. Typical attendees have roles in marketing, sales and business development.
We are advisors to end-users. A workshop for end-user companies typically takes a full day and mostly covers the same elements as below. In addition, a large part of the workshop focuses on critical success factors for technology deployment, such that technology deployment in the end-user company can be streamlined.
We also organise public events, mostly with local partners.

“Success in the deployment of technology depends on many factors. Through the Technology Deployment workshop, we validated that our internal process is on par with what is seen as a successful implementation strategy within the Oil & Gas Markets. We can now diversify our technology deployment, with the assurance that we truly manage these variables in a structured approach with a firm strategy standing central to the technology integration into different markets.”
