15 DICT Scholars Graduate from 12-day RIS Technical Training in Bogo City

For Future Digital Transformation in the City

15 scholars graduated with certificates last September 1, 2017  for the first batch of the Rural Impact Sourcing Technical Training under Ms. Fleire Castro of Third Team Media as Resource Person for the 12-day Technical Training. The technical training is a project of DICT (Department of Information and Communication Technology) in collaboration with DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) and LGU.

DICT scholars together with DTI, LGU, and RP Fleire Castro

Most rural areas in the Philippines are highly populated yet have low employment rates due to the lack of investors within the vicinity. As a result, the majority of the working force would move to Manila, Cebu City, or other major cities where employment rates are high.

In connection with this, the Department of Communications and Information Technology (DICT) expressed their desire to advance digital literacy and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills among Filipino talents and freelancers. Thus, the Rural Impact Sourcing Technical Training was created, most especially in order to boost opportunities for high-value online jobs in rural areas in the country.

The technical training was done in collaboration with DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) who provided the Negosyo Center as the venue for the 3-week program. They also provided and sourced the MSMEs whose brands and businesses are partnered with their respective scholars for the rollout and implementation of their digital transformation.

It was also done in collaboration with the local government unit which, in the case of Bogo City, spearheaded by Mr. Roger Tonacao, the IT Head of Bogo LGU. The LGU provided technical assistance and meals for the scholars throughout the 3-week training and hosted the assessment and graduation program thereafter.

The scholars and MSMEs were screened according to basic technical and digital skills and according to interest in rolling out a digital marketing campaign, respectively. The scholars and MSMEs were then matched to work together for the duration of the 3-weeks and the 21-day campaign rollout.

Fleire Castro Together with the other DICT scholars of Bogo CIty

Ms. Fleire Castro, the Resource Person, delivered topics in a lecture + demo + hands-on format for 3 weeks aimed at producing top to bottom digital marketing services with the benefits of learning of Digital Transformation during this training.

Slingshot Cebu 2017 encourages MSME’s to adopt Digital Transformation for their Businesses

Last August 8-9, 2017, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) organized the very first Slingshot Cebu 2017 in hopes of continuing economic innovation by empowering MSMEs to adapt Digital Transformation. By definition, Digital Transformation is the application of digital technologies to fundamentally impact all aspects of business and society.

In this time and age, marketing has evolved to include the digital aspect, thanks to thee emergence of the internet. Social media plays the most crucial role, as it has paved the way to connect users around the world, regardless of timezone or location. It is for this very reason that MSMEs are encouraged to adapt Digital Transformation, since the marketing scene has changed largely due to the adaptation of technology.

It is interesting to note that a company’s lifespan has shortened from centuries, to decades and then to years. This is due to the disruptions that had happened throughout the history of business. At present, digital transformation has greatly influenced marketing, and as a result, several companies have received disruptions.

Competitors’ actions now are far from foreseeable, and market changes rapidly. Employees start to have more diverse needs, and many customers can now access information on several options through other customers. Customer expectations and tastes are now more varied and are easily influenced by social media.

Back when the internet was nonexistent, corporations turned to traditional tri-media — print, radio and television. However, since radio and broadcast advertising were costly, only giant companies or conglomerates could afford such, leaving MSMEs no choice but to stick with print. Thus, MSMEs had difficulty establishing brand awareness.

But today, MSMEs who are considered early adapters to digital transformation, are slowly gaining success, and are able to thrive in fields where conglomerates would have overshadowed them in the past.

It is worthy to remember, however, that long-standing companies are having a hard time thriving, most probably due to their unwillingness or difficulty in adapting to the digital world. Technology has become a double-edged sword — newer, millennial owned companies are slowly climbing the corporate ladder, while older, more traditional companies who have not made the switch to digital just yet are struggling to survive their day to day operations.

It is a fact that 80% of the businesses in the Philippines are MSMEs, yet majority of these are urgently in need of change in their marketing strategy in order to move forward economic innovation. Instead of going against one another, shouldn’t we work hand in hand as we explore the the new age of marketing in the ever changing business world?

Would you want to be a disruptor, or be disrupted?
