Digitisation has made rapid progress especially over the past 2 decades. From the way we consume media, entertainment, shopping, medical treatment, learning, the list goes on. The digital platform has progressively made an impact to touch our lives in every conceivable way possible.
This evolution into the new era into the Industry 4.0 has driven radical changes to the way businesses must operate. These changes are fast taking shape not only in how we manage our organisations internally, but also in engagement with the ecosystem - including marketing, supply chain management, government relations, human resource and all aspects of business and social interactions. It so prevalent that digital has become business, not merely the enabler.
Key focus areas are really in delivery and service which includes, among others:
Managing Change & Opportunities in the Industrial Revolution
Industry 4.0 for Manufacturing/ Engineering
Internet of Things(Arduino/RPi)
Five years from now, over one-third of skills (35%) that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed.
By 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have brought us advanced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence and machine learning, advanced materials, biotechnology and genomics.
These developments will transform the way we live, and the way we work. Some jobs will disappear, others will grow and jobs that don’t even exist today will become commonplace. What is certain is that the future workforce will need to align its skillset to keep pace.
