In particular I will focus on our tool, Sweco TellUs, which helps us facilitate the customer dialogue.

Case Study Embarking Digital Transformation the other way around: How to push digitalization with a behavioural change approach
Why it makes sense to turn away from tools and technologies if you want to increase their adoption
The six stages of behavioural change and how to move from being aware to mastering the change
Top down? Bottom up ? Central ? Regional ?, Local ? all but in the right sequence
Collaborative behaviours driving usage and adoption of social media and other collaborative tools
While communication and collaborative tools were widely spread their adoption and therefore the benefits linked to the usage were pretty low. What a surprise ! We needed absolutely to make progress as more collaboration across units and people was clearly needed to support the upcoming strategy. We decided not to keep on pushing the technology but to change the approach and turned for instance Yammer from a dead horse to a platform having half of the employee on it.

Building a Technical Brand- Transforming Digital and Mobility with a user experience focused approach
Challenge: changing the face of IT from cost center / service enabler / (dare I say) hindrance? to equal business partner / value driver / strategic partner
What’s involved – transforming all of IT (new people, new roles, new mindset, new org model); mindset change from ‘waiting for a call’ to ‘driving end-to-end business solutions that happen to include technology’; Run IT like a Business; Run IT Solutions like Brands
Focus more on ‘commercializing’ -> the change management process, the marketing, the people-service delivered along with the technology
Some good examples:
o Digital Meeting Service -> from consultation, to meeting agenda design, to pre-meeting training, to in-meeting support – we provide an end-to-end meeting service that allows you to ‘be there without going there’. Driving significant cost savings for the company without negotiating on quality of the meeting, we deliver a digital meeting service and user experience that allows our global company to keep meeting and connecting without all the travel and expenses and without compromising on meeting objectives/quality.
o Mobility Services -> transforming our way of working from a locked down, secured and limited (not to mention expensive!) centrally managed PC to a more flexible and mobile user solution including aspects such as the actual device used, the software incorporated and the way of receiving support to enable our users to work where they want to, when they want to and from whatever device they choose to use. Through this process, we improved employee satisfaction and engagement while driving down total costs of ownership for IT to run our end-to-end user computing solution
In my presentation, I will focus on how we build the capability in our IT professionals to run our solutions like a brand manager runs a brand in a business, taking into account all aspects of catering to the user (our ‘consumer’). We do ‘consumer research’ via disciplined market research techniques to gain insights, we do ‘marketing’ of our solutions to drive awareness, consumption, repeat usage, etc. We discuss our ‘market share’. We analyze our competitors where/when they exist. We maintain a Profit & Loss (P&L) for our solutions so we know exactly how much we’re spending vs ‘making’ (goal is to net 0). As a result of this, we naturally focus more on our end-to-end user experience and how to optimize that for maximum value to the company of our investments in technology. Our IT solutions are user experiences first and technology solutions 2nd.
FrieslandCampina is a €12B global, Dutch dairy company operating in 32 countries and serving consumers in over 100 countries. We are a cooperative, so our company owners are our farmers. Our workforce consists of 22,000 employees and our IT department is 300 employees strong.

Evening Keynote Aspirations and Obstacles for the Future of Collaboration
Every new communication and collaboration technology has its success stories, but for every advance it is easy to see many possibilities for improvement. We still tend to experience pockets of productive collaboration that leave few opportunities to forward or share information between enclaves.
Some of the trends are also at odds with each other. Social collaboration platforms designed to build connections across an enterprise compete with team chat tools that compartmentalize collaboration in small groups. No sooner has Slack been proclaimed the savior of workplace technology than along comes the backlash of those who complain about being overwhelmed by chat messages. Meanwhile, voice and video communications players want to wedge collaboration into “unified communication and collaboration” suites, while document and content companies show their own bias. Artificial intelligence, voice recognition, and augmented reality will be among the next batch of technologies to rewrite the rules.
Social Collaboration for Dummies author David F. Carr will paint the optimistic picture of what collaboration technology could be, if it can overcome its growing pains.
