Project lead:

Amount awarded:
£115,171
Project summary:

The project will deliver digital leadership change through establishing a hub and spoke supply chain model. It will set the contractor as the hub and the supply chain as the spokes, and use this infrastructure to influence and upskill supply chain leaders.

The project will conduct digital audits of participating organisations, develop case studies and use them to create online and F2F training material for best-practice digital leadership which will be delivered training through the hub and spoke model to leaders in participating contractors’ supply chain organisations.

After the project, participating employers will have taken measurable steps to digitalisation. An online portal will be created that will house the case studies, training content and any lessons learned from the hub and spoke approach. This content will enable other supply chains to deliver the same leadership change programme.

Project summary:

The project delivers skills through a flexible model that allows leaders to engage in a way most appropriate to their needs. 

  • This model allows leaders to select and implement the elements of digital construction most beneficial to their organisation through a menu of open training courses, in-house support and coaching, seminars, webinars, on-line courses, written resources, an online diagnostic tool, open source teaching and training materials and by connecting construction companies to relevant experts.
  • The project will target employers in the civil engineering sector in Scotland with post-project GB and wider sector scalability. It will upskill industry trainers and mentors to ensure the sustainability of the project.
  • After the project participating employers will have taken measurable steps to digitalisation.  SOFC will continue to offer the service commercially, whilst making all training content freely available so others can also do the same. The trainers and mentors will continue to benefit their companies and supply chains.
