Industry 4.0 is now gathering momentum globally. According to the 2016 Industry 4.0 global survey conducted by PwC, nearly three-quarters of respondents foresaw a high level of digitalization in their companies over the next five years. However, in McKinsey’s 2017 digital manufacturing global expert survey, companies also pointed out that the lack of a clear vision, strategy, and a systematic roadmap were the most significant challenges hindering Industry 4.0 adoption. Based on a 2017 study conducted in partnership with Accenture, seven out of ten manufacturers from the energy, chemicals, and utility sectors plan to deploy Industry 4.0 solutions by 2020. Companies also regard Industry 4.0 as a lever to boost both organizational efficiency and business productivity. However, the pace of Industry 4.0 adoption is uneven across different industries and companies. Companies both globally and locally are grappling with the concept of Industry 4.0 and the value it could bring. For these companies, questions such as What is Industry 4.0, and how can it benefit my company? Where should I start? What are my gaps today and where are the opportunities tomorrow? Remain unanswered. Industry 4.0 will create digital networks and ecosystems that in many cases, will span the globe but still retain distinct regional footprints. Both developed and developing markets stand to gain dramatically. Industry 4.0 offers a variety of solutions to optimize, from optimized asset usage and smoother manufacturing processes to better logistics and inventory management. Industry 4.0, smart factories, supply chains, connected customers, real-time alignment, etc., everything is about data, from actual operations to delivering a product to an end customer and beyond. Building an organizational culture that facilitates the ongoing creation of new value is not rocket science. But it requires a fundamental change in perspective on the part of the organization’s leadership and management, a move that will challenge current management practices, including how a manager’s performance is measured and evaluated. To be successful in a 4.0 World, organizations will now need to evaluate their managers and leaders not only based on what they have delivered but also by the readiness of their teams to perform in an unknown future. Contrary to popular belief, winning in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is not about speed but it’s about non-stop strategic change that continually advances the organization toward its stated goals.
