    59: From Whiteboards and Spreadsheets to Connected Planning: Michael Lynch's Digital Transformation Advice

    Join us as we discuss bringing the day to day running data and action items from visual management and paper notes, to a connected and full cycle solution. My guest, Michael Lynch, Co-Founder of Praxie, shares insights into the evolving landscape of AI, its practical applications, and how businesses can leverage this transformative tool to gain a competitive edge.

    The conversation delves into the role of so many data points in manufacturing and the challenges faced by companies in managing diverse processes, often relying on tools like Excel sheets. Praxie aims to address this by offering a digitisation platform that allows companies to start small and gradually build custom applications tailored to their needs.

    Michael emphasises the significance of digitising processes to gather intelligence and optimise manufacturing. He highlights the long tail of manufacturing processes, often managed through traditional methods like Excel sheets and explains how it helps replace these with digital solutions, improving efficiency and transparency.

Give this a go if you are in marketing or manage manufacturing
