The Irish agency said its two online tools will highlight strengths within a company and identify areas for improvement, to help firms achieve better digital transformation.
IDA Ireland has launched two self-assessment tools for its client companies to help build their technology capabilities.
The two online tools are designed to help firms assess the current activities that enable advanced manufacturing or digitalisation of services. The tools aim to highlight strengths within a company and identify existing gaps for improvement.
IDA Ireland said these tools will also let companies priorities activities that build future capacity to achieve successful transformation and growth.
The diagnostic tools are aimed at companies that want to increase their organisational resilience and become more sustainable. One of the main functions of the new tools is to provide an action plan for future proofing Irish multinational companies.
The first tool is designed to assess the maturity of disruptive digital and sustainable technologies within manufacturing organisations. The second tool assesses the digitalisation maturity of service organisations.
IDA Ireland divisional manager of life sciences talent transformation and innovation, Michael Lohan, said supporting company transformation is one of the key elements of the agency’s ‘Driving Recovery and Sustainable Growth’ strategy.
“These diagnostic tools will help our clients to establish their current and future technology and talent or skills needs.” Lohan said. “This will be essential in positioning them for growth as technology adoption and digital transformation accelerates.”
Companies can access the two diagnostic tools by contacting their IDA Ireland project executive.
“IDA Ireland is focused on supporting our client companies’ transformation to enhance their overall competitiveness using digital disruptive and sustainable technologies,” the agency said.
IDA Ireland had considerable success retaining a high FDI record during the pandemic, with Ireland increasing its market share of FDI into Europe in 2020 despite a global decline in FDI flows.
In July, Skillnet Ireland reported record levels of engagement with its skills and training initiatives, as Irish businesses continue to upskill in areas such as digitalisation, leadership and sustainability.
