Industrial Globally

Agile and forward-looking organizations are innovatively combining these forces to connect machines, components and data systems along the entire value chain. Unprecedented levels of product customization are already possible for the brightest and best players.

Meanwhile, two further shifts are compounding the challenges and opportunities of Industry 4.0: legislative intricacy and a rising world population.

This is nothing short of a fourth industrial revolution. Yet its progress is already being slowed by talent shortage. For a new profile of leadership is now needed: able to transform complexity into opportunity across functional, geographical and conceptual borders. Whilst the call for such talent is on the rise globally, some regions, like Asia, are experiencing a particularly steep scale of development.
