The diagnostic tools are designed for use by businesses with the goals of bolstering their organisational resilience and moving toward a more sustainable business model. The provision of an action plan for future-proofing Irish multinational enterprises is one of the primary tasks of the new instruments that have been developed.
The first instrument is a method for determining the degree to which industrial organisations have adopted disruptive digital and environmentally friendly technology. The level of digitalization maturity of service organisations may be determined using the second instrument.
Michael Lohan, who is the divisional manager of life sciences talent transformation and innovation at IDA Ireland, stated that one of the primary focuses of the agency’s ‘Driving Recovery and Sustainable Growth’ strategy is to provide assistance to businesses in their efforts to undergo transformations.
