A substantial number of local enterprises have rapidly embraced digital transformation with the onset of the pandemic, notes Stax Sri Lanka, a company at the forefront of helping corporates manage this transition through its project management office.
Global management consultant, Stax, is currently leading the way in managing strategy execution for this new era. The company has already engaged diverse sectors including Sri Lanka’s tea industry for the digitalisation of its historic auction. It also extended expertise to the education sector partnering international schools for the implementation of digital learning platforms to suit teachers, parents and students’ needs. Stax says many Sri Lankan industries have looked at digital transformation as the operating strategy to charter a course through the pandemic.
When going digital, organisations must contemplate on the right balance for remote and physical working. They must also invest in relevant infrastructure to enable this process and service delivery, whilst reducing physical touchpoints with customers. Different sectors have diverse workforce generations, Stax notes, pointing to the need for varying levels of management and execution to realise individual ends.
“Setting up appropriate infrastructure is an important first step in a process of transformation; digital and otherwise. Organisations need to prioritise initiatives during such rapid transformations as resources are limited, and sometimes they must look at quick wins to start making a difference from commencement of execution. Initiatives can be prioritized based on investment and impact,” a Stax spokesperson said.

Drawing upon its global expertise, Stax works hand-in-hand with clients offering holistic solutions for digital transformation and programme management.
