Expertivity Technologies

Expertivity Technologies provides the expertise required to help organisations rewire for execution, adaptiveness and speed. While digital technologies are shaping our modern societies and economies, many organisations are struggling to adapt to the tsunami of change inherent in the emerging digital world. The technologies of “advanced management practices” are often ignored in the rush to adopt the new digital technologies whereas, they are the cornerstone of the organisational transformation required to successfully harness them.

Expertivity Technologies provides expertise in both Digital and Management Technologies, the combination of which underpin the modern, high performance and agile organisation. In today’s digital economies, organisations need to develop world-class expertise in both.

Agile Business Execution is the application of both technologies to continuously reconfigure strategies, structures, processes, people, and technologies towards value-creating and value-protecting goals. It is the single most important capability required by organisations who want to survive and thrive in the emerging digital world.

Service and knowledge work organisations are particularly challenged by the change tsunami sweeping society and the modern workforce is seeking organisations and management that empower and enable rather than command and control. To succeed, modern organisations must build a foundation of operational robustness, resilience and agility if they are to retain their workforce’s trust and commitment while exploiting the opportunities emerging in the changing digital environment.

For over 15 years, our master practitioners have been the leading providers of Agile Business Execution expertise including Lean Enterprise Excellence and Digital-Readiness to the service and knowledge work sectors including Financial Services, Global Business Services, Healthcare, Public Sector, Utilities, and Information Technology. In doing so we have helped organisations from SME’s to Multinationals develop resilience in the face of emerging technologies, market volatility, changing regulatory environments and increasing customer demands.

During that time, we have developed a proven suite of proprietary tools and methodologies that help build and sustain the enhanced skills and capabilities required to deliver the superior organisational fitness that underpins long term competitive advantage. These include our Agile Business Execution Canvas®, our Service Operations Fundamentals Program and our Integrated Lean Management System, ServiceForce.  Since its launch in 2010, ServiceForce  has been powering the execution of service and knowledge work organisations, both large and small.

As an approved service provider for the Lean Business offers from both Enterprise Ireland and the IDA, we have been delivering major performance gains to clients across the service and knowledge work sectors.

Please come along and visit us at our stand located at the entrance to the main conference hall.
