Digitalization will become a crucial driver for a profitable and sustainable growth in the coming years for the chemical industry where many players have already made significant steps towards digitalizing their most important operations.
In 2022 our Group has formally launched a Digitalization project which has involved and is involving many people in different areas of our organization.
The core project teams have adopted an agile working method that allows them to track the progress towards the final target in a very systematic manner. There are weekly or bi-weekly sessions with very specific and defined deliverables that are discussed and consolidated at the end of each session. In addition to the core teams, for each project there is also a non-core team and the sponsor(s) that are not hands-on the project but are extremely useful to provide feedback and an external view on the project.
