Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR). We are in the middle of the automation and interconnectedness of devices, processes, smart homes, machines and other instruments. Pioneering technologies like IoT, robotics, AI, cloud computing 3-D printing, smart data or augmented reality are already making a big impact in our lives. However, those technologies do not only revolutionise one industry, but rather all industries and being revolutionised equally in an exponential way.
How does that impact leadership? With technological development happening at such exponential speeds, we need to learn to understand how to utilise new technologies to our advantage. The pressure is high for everyone with large amounts of responsibility and in leadership positions to ‘upgrade’ their management competencies.
Are you familiar with terms like UX (User Experience)? DT (Design Thinking)? Or which Lean-Start-up methods are suitable for your organisation, and how do you implement them? Does your organisation have a digital strategic plan or a social media forensics platform?
First of all, please be assured that you do not need to know the entire 4IR changes for your business in one hit. Some of them are not even invented yet. However, one must start somewhere, which is first of all at the educational level. Keep in mind that every department of your organisation needs to learn as new changes to existing systems will affect everybody.
It is time to move your business into the 4IR and start implementing corporate leadership education programs. Not sure where to start? We provide business diagnostics and tailored corporate training courses to ensure your organisation is ready to grow in the 4IR.
