Key Lessons to Achieve Successful Digital Transformation
There is a general sense of optimism in manufacturing organizations that digital transformation can positively transform economies, business, and society. However, implementing digital technologies across the broader manufacturing enterprise has proven to be challenging for many manufacturers
A new Deloitte study, Distinctive Traits of Digital Frontrunners in Manufacturing, can help organizations design and execute a strategy toward becoming a digital enterprise. The research pulls insights from manufacturers that are leading the path to digital maturity and presents key lessons to consider when seeking to achieve successful digital transformation including:
- Leadership and talent are important enablers
- Well-planned technology investments could yield greater returns
- Deliberate actions are often key to moving the digital strategy forward
How Manufacturers Will Tackle the Talent Shortage in 2019
The lack of workers is one of manufacturing's most dire situations. The good news is 2019 will be a year the industry attacks it head on.
Manufacturing is already wildly innovative in its optimization of production processes. In the coming year, we'll start to see that same innovation creep into the people processes side of the house, driven by the need to attract new talent in a rapidly growing sector.
