Challenges for Today´s Industrial Companies - A need for faster and better decisions
The new volatile business landscape decreases the room for mistakes and waste rapidly. Even more important; the window to capture various opportunities opens and closes faster. Organisations will simply have to act faster and thus in a more decentralised way, and with even better understanding and control of the financial requirements and the financial consequences.
The new volatile business landscape is characterised by:
- An accelerated development and deployment of digitalisation. The latter comes on various levels in a multi-layer stack: IoT, big data, data science, analytics, AI, machine learning, Industry 4.0, 3-D printing, servitisation, new business models, eco-systems, blockchain, cybersecurity
- Stagnant economic growth
- New geopolitical realities, e.g. Trump, Xi Jinping, trade conflicts, Brexit and strong nationalistic agendas
- Pressing environmental challenges, e.g. global warming, air pollution and shortage of fresh water
