Rich Reba
I'd like your thoughts: we have 350+ actively engaged in our tech transformation - how can we get 3500+ engaged, pragmatically speaking?
Chris Fangmann
We need to do what we're doing right now more often
A. James Boswell
change the messaging from above which has utilisation goals set so that people don't feel they can be involved in a meaningful way.
Chris Fangmann
Talk about results, show engagement, show how people that are engaged get visibility
Jim Petrassi
This has been a great grass root effort so far. Perhaps we set a goal for each of the 350 people to personally engage at least 2 other people, and so on, and so on, and so on (for those of you old enough to remember that TV commercial :).
Ernesto Diaz
From Region perspective, ground conversations around how tech transformation will support sales & delivery, get regional senior managament esponsorship.
charles
@richrebajr get them all on the same collab system
Soren Helsted
Good question Rich - we need to make it relevant for everybody - we are 73 online at this crowd chat, why not 350+?
Abhishek Khandelwal, PMP
@chrisfangmann I agree with your point, we need to make sure our fellow CSCians has visibility about what actually is going on.
Soren Helsted
but having these sessions more often will help i think
Mark Nebreda
A targeted engagement plan and comms to connect our Gen Ys/Milenmnials and increase thier particpation
Soren Helsted
we have regional TT meetings in my region to spread the information and talk results
Jeroen's Roonbot
your question is actually "how to create a movement" Might be a hint for an answer.
Dan Hushon
@Xcapee I respectfully disagree, people need to be vested personally in change. If it's important, people make the time. If you're a 9-5er then great, but don't ever expect to be a 1 or 2 employee imo. #ConstantLearning #ConstantChallenge
Kirti Kumar Jain
Use C3 public community in parallel with GDrive. So that anybody can access the deliverables.
A. James Boswell
@Dan_Hushon If I work 40 hours billable then record 40 hours extra (as per ethics policy) finance report my utilisation as 50% -> KRA fail. Need to fix that!
Mark Nebreda
TDC leadership hosting Town Hals when in Region to engage and promote Tech Trans
Ernesto Diaz
Agree with @roonbot2 Need to measure by level of engagement by creating a movement and evangelists.
Nigel Barron
Lead by example, transparency breeds trust, walking the talk...
Jeroen's Roonbot
Careful with target settings, we wan't to be an intrinsicly motivated swarm, not Amway or alike.
Venkat
Many employees are aware of TechTx program, work streams and various initiatives undertaken as part of it. They might not have engaged directly, but collaborated actively. This way 350+ stat may go up
A. James Boswell
Also worth observing that if we have 350 out of 3500 we probably already have most of the distribution of 1 and 2 employees covered. Rich was looking for actively engaging all / most technologist. They're not all 1s and 2s :-)
Dan Hushon
What are we still missing from the Tech Transformation that we should bring into focus?
Chris Fangmann
Would you agree we're now at the point where we could bring in selected customers into the Tech Transformation?
Howard Smith
Relationships with Academia?
Soren Helsted
What about select partners?
Rich Reba
agree with all three suggestions posted by Howard, Chris & Soren
Howard Smith
A way broker connections between clients willing to provide a context for new ideas with new ideas being developed internally, to create co-funded FOAK projects
Baskar V
Sure Implementation is the key which is underway
Fitz Stewart
- want to hear more about our offerings transformation
CSC@ImperialCollege
customer advocacy that the transformation is in demand
Ganesh Swaminathan
- we have to work on sharp and consistent messages that we can take to the customers
Rich Reba
@Fitz Stewart what do you want to hear?
charles
@ CSC employees need more awareness of the visioon
Ernesto Diaz
Set to Integration & Operation. Inputs and outputs between programs. Go for the first interactions for the model and manage over implementation success metrics
Bob Hayward
as our own LEF has pointed out, the real need is for 'double deep' talent that understands an industry as well as technologies. As we move up the stack into more vertical IP (software, BPO, BPaaS) industry knowledge is critical.
David Seymour
Like to see a visible tie up between Tech Transformation and Dev Studios "Platform" and "ESM" in Offerings Space...please. or pointers to that visibility :)
Fitz Stewart
on Offerings Transformation, want to hear what we've learned from CSC MyWorkStyles offering dev, and experience with C0 to date - and how offering dev will be different moving forward
Paul Varman
agree we need to see what alignments there are between TT and Offering Transformation and how that impact Alliance Partnerships
K. Kisovec
how to leverage the innovative aspects (like predictive trending) for client purpose
Howard Smith
Definition of 'next gen' beyond the call to arms
Howard Smith
A joined up story of CSC's collaboration, from ideation events, to enterprise social network, to jamming, to grand challenges and everything in between.
Howard Smith
Services Innovation
Howard Smith
Incubation 'FinTech' style
Howard Smith
Clearer definition of R&D in the CSC context (offerings, verticals, client accounts, technology futures)
Paul St Amand
strategic oversight to ensure there's a solid repeatable way to weave the offerings and pieces into a enterprise architecture that fits within our own environment and works within each clients environment
Howard Smith
Still more focus on talent I feel, role of HR beyond house keeping and onboarding employees
Rich Reba
@Fitz Stewart expect to see continuous improvements in Offerings Transformation - application of continuous delivery styles - rapid learning and iterations based on market needs - fail fast and succeed fast
Jerry Overton
Clear path to operationalize. We need an efficient way to take what we've done and spread it to the far corners of the company.
Howard Smith
