A blank-slate approach
When developing its digital transformation strategy, PGS took the time to understand its business challenges and the technology landscape across the industry.
“We said, OK, if we could take a blank slate and start over, what would this look like if we started today and we didn’t constrain ourselves to what we’ve been doing?” said Mike Tomasco, vice president, digital manufacturing, Pfizer.
This approach, combined with strong executive sponsorship, helped the organization craft a vision that was all-encompassing and a strategy that was focused on delivering value.
Meanwhile, as this work was happening, a PGS operational excellence group was in the midst of an initiative focused on migrating PGS operations to a lean manufacturing mindset.
