Scaling up digital transformation initiatives (also called Industrial Transformation (IX)) come with a set of business challenges that are not easy to overcome. While some companies are successfully transforming, as LNS Research shows, most industrial organizations are either still keeping it at a smaller scope (e.g. pilots) or haven’t started their transformation yet.

In this webinar, we combine MaxGrip’s domain expertise in Asset Performance Management (APM) with LNS Research’s extensive market knowledge. Starting point for the discussion are four common roadblocks to scaling up digital transformation. Ronald de Kok, VP Marketing & Sales at MaxGrip talks to Bob Francis, research analyst at LNS Research, about how to overcome these challenges to successfully take the next steps in digital transformation. They are joined by Jeroen Tasseron, MaxGrip consultant who will talk about a global project at a well-known brewery.

The four roadblocks that are discussed:

  1. Asset management is not seen as a contributor of IX success
  2. The organization is not able to see beyond the technology
  3. The organization is not able to achieve internal adoption for the changes
  4. There’s no internal alignment or collaboration between Operations and Asset Management
