    Transformers 2018: how digital are the largest companies in the Netherlands?

    How far have the largest Dutch companies progressed in their digital transformation? Which companies are leading the way? And which digital skills are still proving difficult even for this leading group? The FD and Vlerick Business School have joined forces to publish the second annual study into digital transformation among the largest traditional companies in the Netherlands. The results can be read in the special ‘FD Transformers 2018’.

  2. Digital Transformation Leaders Game

    You can't lead a digital transformation alone

    The success of your digital transformation depends on the agility of your organisation. You need to constantly evaluate opportunities and take action, preferably faster than your competitors. This is where the leadership challenges lie. Together with his team, Professor Stijn Viaene has developed a leadership model and a game, the Digital Transformation Leaders Game. This is a light-hearted way of gaining insights into the different types of leadership which contribute to the success of your digital transformation.

  3. The data-driven project manager

    Data-driven project management in clear language

    Professor Mario Vanhoucke has eight academic books to his name. But his latest title, The Data-Driven Project Manager, is written in the form of a story. It follows Emily Reed – a young project manager who uses data to make decisions. The characters and dialogues are all based on real people and Mario’s years of professional experience.

  4. Condition-based maintenance

    Smarter maintenance means cheaper maintenance

    Thanks to the fourth industrial revolution, we’re increasingly able to connect machines with each other and with the internet. This gives us remote access to data about a machine’s condition – but how can we use this data to plan maintenance and reduce costs? Professor Robert Boute joined forces with several colleagues to develop algorithms designed to help.

  5. Petrochemical sector

    Digitising the petrochemical supply chain

    “Digitisation has already disrupted several industries. We wanted to assess its impact, analysing not only its challenges, but also its opportunities, to understand how digitisation can add value to the petrochemical supply chain,” recalls Caroline Ciuciu, CEO of EPCA, the European Petrochemical Association. Professor Ann Vereecke and her team, in close collaboration with EPCA, set out to find answers.

  6. Digital strategy

    “We must transform ourselves first”

    Piva eGov is a provincial internal independent agency, originally set up to provide operational ICT support to local authorities in East Flanders. “But if you want them to be able to take on the challenges of today, changes must primarily be made at the strategic ICT level,” says Dirk Goeminne, the agency's director. Together with Vlerick, piva eGov has developed a new customised service provision to help local authorities with their digital transformation.

  7. Web shop

    How to convince your online customers as a newcomer?

    A growing number of established companies are turning to e-commerce as an additional sales channel. Plenty of smaller start-ups, however, choose to set up only an online shop, without investing in physical points of sale. How can you convince first-time consumers to buy your products or services online, as an unfamiliar vendor? Are all kinds of guarantees sufficient? Or should you consider investing in a customer review module?

  8. Digital government

    Onwards to a digital government!

    Digital transformation: an end-to-end business transformation in which digital technologies play an important role. It seems inescapable, even for the government. But what shape will a digitally transformed government take? What is the current status? And what is needed to achieve a digitally transformed government? Lieselot Danneels’ PhD fills some of the gaps in the literature, and provides governments with some pointers.

  9. Digipolis

    How Digipolis stimulates innovation through its procurement strategy

    Digipolis is the public non-profit body which provides IT services to various public institutions in Antwerp. In 2015, Digipolis realised that it was missing out on innovative solutions – generally from start-ups – as it often called upon large, traditional software players. A major strategic exercise ultimately led to a drastic redesign of their procurement strategy. The new strategy completely overturned the status quo and boosted the participation of innovative start-ups in public tenders and the purchase of more innovative solutions.

  10. Public procurement

    How can the public sector take a more innovative approach to procurement?

    Innovative procurement means using innovative procurement methods with the goal of streamlining the purchasing process and making it more efficient. The public sector in Belgium still does that too little, tending to cling to the traditional method. However, innovative procurement has two major benefits, being saving costs and stimulating innovation. For his ongoing doctoral research, Ben De Coninck has been studying the Belgian government’s position when it comes to innovative procurement.
