Mobility is a major force in changing the way organizations are using technology. This research note is based on interviews with key employees in the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building, The Danish Ministry of Social Affairs, Children and Integration and The Danish Ministry of Environment. It describes how cBrain F2 Manager and cBrain F2 Minister iPad-enables cBrain F2 Case Management Software and change the way top management work in Danish government.

Optimizing through mobility
Mobility is by far the strongest technology driver right now. Comparing findings from various research organizations leaves the lasting impression, that access to data and ability to do real work with data whenever and wherever needed are becoming top priorities in many organizations. Mobility optimizes processes and ultimately frees up time for the mobilized workforce to core activities or new ones.

At the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building tThe implantation of F2 Minister has led to more efficient case management, and at The Office for Case Management it is estimated that the iPad-enabling has meant a 70% reduction in time spent on the tasks needed after the approval processes in top management.

At the Danish Ministry of Social Affairs, Children and Integration the management meetings on director level are now totally without printed documents. All documents from the cBrain F2 Case Management Software needed for the management meetings are accessed from the directors’ iPad by cBrain F2 Manager.

Experiences from a top manager
Mr. Jesper Brask Fischer is Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Social Affairs, Children and Integration making him responsible for the day to day management, strategy and international relations:
“Time is saved. The academic staff prepares the items for the agenda and delivers all material to my iPad through F2 Manager.  I can work everywhere and immediately be able to find historic documents, whenever a checkup is needed.”

“Top management isn’t trained on the iPad. And the daily agenda with all the meeting material is a management tool they excel in. The digitized daily agenda therefore needs to work for them right away to be accepted as a new management tool.”
