Digital Transformation using Disruptive Technologies

The fourth industrial revolution (or so-called Industry 4.0) brings with it a transformational disruption in almost every industry. BCG’s infographic  (modified) below shows the 9 dimensions of the Future Economy. 

Given that more than 35% of skills considered important today will have changed within the next few years (as per World Economic Forum), a suite of critical skills is needed among all workforce. In addition to that, workforce needs to have an understanding of the fundamental technologies of the 9 dimensions of Industry 4.0 and how to leverage them for their personal and organizational success - more importantly, future-proof themselves. Workforce needs to gain a Digital Growth Mindset with a "heart ware" change. 

Avvanz has crafted a 2-Days value-packed workshop that has been delivered in various parts of Asia, US and UK. This interactive workshop covers:

  • What is Industry 4.0?
  • Fundamentals of Digital Technologies, Productivity Tools and Applications to be productive anywhere
