Technology has been shown to help improve a firm’s productivity. However, the slow rate of technology adoption across many UK businesses could be impacting their performance. Our colleagues at the Productivity Institute have just launched their Digital Opportunity Survey, which provides organisations with a digital prescription plan to explore how they improve their performance through digital technology.  Find out more below.

The Productivity Institute is a £32 million investment made possible by a grant from the Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC), focussing on improving productivity and living standards across the whole of the UK economy. The Institute’s work in Scotland is led by the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow. The small business community is at the core of our mission. We aim to support and help small businesses to grow, scale up and succeed. Investment in and use of digital technologies and skills are key to unlock your growth potential. Our mission in Scotland is to unlock the productivity potential to build a stronger, more resilient economy especially for those currently so badly affected by the impacts of Covid-19.    

The Productivity Institute would like to engage you in a short (15 minute) survey that seeks to understand digital adoption and maturity in your business: resources, capabilities and skills, gaps and opportunities. The goal of the survey is to provide you with an analysis that will help you in developing a digital prescription plan for your business. This plan will help you automate and organise operations more efficiently to free up time to focus on growing your business.
