Overview and Methodologies

Overview and Methodologies

Course Overview

Whether you are looking at "doing the same with less" or "doing more with the same", technology plays an important role to improve business processes and increase employee productivity. However, research shows that up to 70% of digital transformations fail to achieve targeted benefits; hence, this raises the question of how we can encourage our manufacturing workers to embrace both the ongoing changes facing them and new technologies. Planning and implementing your targeted change to minimise employee resistance and cost to the company while ensuring your workforce is confident and competent in executing those changes is pertinent to successful digital transformations.


This interactive, activity-based training focuses on the Organisational aspects of the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) Digital Transformation through the sharing of key notions of Organisational Change Management (OCM) aligned with the latest I4.0 concepts. Starting with an overview of OCM 4.0 and how manufacturers experience change, the course goes through the latest methodologies to plan and execute a successful digital transformation. It also introduces the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) and how Change Management in an Industry 4.0 transformation fits the SIRI's dimensions.
