Digital Leadership

Digital leadership, strategy and the need to develop a culture of collaboration and innovation

Using digital to transform the construction process

Working with the CITB, Thames Tideway, Costain and Skanska and with the support of numerous industry contractors and suppliers, we have developed an interactive digital learning programme that will equip leaders with the skills to lead digital change.

Our Digital Leadership course won the Water Industry Awards 2022 for the ‘Skills and Workforce Initiative of Year’ in joint venture with VINCI Construction Grands Projects.

We saw the Digital leadership programme as a great resource to help us drive awareness further around digital for both Senior leaders and Heads of function in Sir Robert McAlpine in support of our business digital agenda”. Nick Leach – Head of Digital Construction, Sir Robert McAlpine

Leadership and management are often confused.

The School’s digital leadership resources explore these two activities in detail, focusing on what traits leaders need to deliver digital transformation effectively in their organisations.

The next stage in the digital revolution has begun. Having transformed retailing, publishing, travel and financial services, digital technology is changing the way we plan, build, maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure.

It is vital for the improved effectiveness of infrastructure delivery that we maximise the benefits of digital delivery. The Digital Leadership Course helps to bring those of us who aren’t expert digital practitioners more up to speed so that we can better understand this area and can more fully contribute to its future development.Roger Bailey – Chief Technical Officer, Tideway

Finalists: Construction News Awards 2022 in the Supply Chain Excellence category and Best Innovation category.

Improving your digital maturity

How do I develop the skills to embrace digital technologies?

Describing the various digital transformations of the construction industry.

Digital Transformation in Construction Industry

Unlocking construction’s digital future: A skills plan for industry

The CITB White Paper  – part of their ‘Changing Construction – Changing Skills’ programme – reported that:

“At the heart of digitalisation is a need for a digitally skilled workforce. Construction businesses not only need to be able to use technology, but to make the most of it. The right skills are a key catalyst for digital growth. This report examines what the current skills gap is and what is required to fill it.

There is a growing interest in the industry in the need to become digital but it doesn’t always know how to go about it. The sector’s vision of how to implement, recruit and fill the digital skill gap is unclear.”

The School’s resources help you understand:

  • What makes a good digital leader?
  • The risks and benefits of digital adoption
  • How to develop a digital strategy
