About this Event

Developing Digital Leadership Skills in Construction SMEs

A free programme funded by the CITB for construction companies across the UK.

Creating a digital culture and overcoming resistance to change in construction SMEs

A Digital Boardroom: Improving Business Performance by adopting digital solutions.

Many construction companies have deeply embedded paper-based processes and traditional ways of working and developing a digital culture and overcoming resistance to change can be challenging.

This can occur across the organisation such as the director who does not want to fund a digital solution, the head of department who does not see the need for change, those with of fear technology or end-users worried about the impact on their long term employment.

This session explores:

  • The opportunities to improve business performance using a digital solution
  • How construction companies can develop a digital culture
  • Overcoming resistance to change
  • The technical considerations when introducing digital solutions

As the sessions rely on the interaction between delegates, all participants need to use a webcam and microphone.

Digital Boardrooms

Digital Boardrooms bring together owners and managers of construction SMEs. They are designed to give leaders the skills to introduce digital solutions into their organisation and hence improve business performance. Sessions will explore ways to streamline, improve or remove processes and tasks that are repetitive, error-prone or time-consuming, with support and guidance from experts in digital solutions.

Each meeting includes:

  1. A facilitated group activity exploring opportunities to improve business performance
  2. Discussions about a specific aspect of digital adoption, such as evaluating potential solutions, culture change or implementation
  3. Technical considerations
  4. Next steps

Delegates can join the programme at any time, but we hope they will attend all or most Digital Boardrooms to create a trusted peer support group.

Events may be sponsored by a supplier to meet the matched funding required by the CITB, but this is not a recommendation of specific products.

Joining instructions will be sent 24 hours before the start of the event. If you do not receive them, please email
