Add your voice to Arcadis’ new water industry report
Based on a recent industry survey of 423 water utility professionals, more than 90 percent believe that innovation is critical to the future of their organization. However, only 40 percent believe that they have seen measurable change through innovation. Top innovation inhibitors include access to information and workforce engagement. This gap represents an opportunity to reimagine how utilities approach innovation and the value of bridging their needs with strategic innovation investments. With new solutions and solution providers entering the water market every day, digital technology and analytics is becoming a key catalyst for innovation.
How is digital empowering utility transformation to a fit-for-future state? How is it helping to close the gap between seeing innovation opportunities and realizing benefits? Arcadis, the leading global design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets, aims to provide the industry with insights on this topic based on the lived experiences of utilities and water industry influencers.
Add your voice to the conversation by taking a brief survey and sharing your story – completing both should take less than 10 minutes. The window of opportunity to join the survey is from Thursday, October 18 to Thursday, November 1.
Respondents who share their innovation story and express interest may be featured in Arcadis’ final Innovation & Digital Transformation report, due out by the end of 2018. Respondents will also qualify for participation in a 2019 ‘Sprint Orange’, a human-centric innovation experience hosted by Arcadis that helps organizations define a challenge, co-create a solution and articulate its value.
