Industry 4.0 – Senior Leader Briefing

Business Breakfast Event

Addressing the ‘digital challenge’ is imperative. In 2016, PwC’s global survey of over 2000 businesses reported a predicted increase of $493 billion in digital revenue over 5 years AND $421 billion savings in costs. The financial case cannot be ignored.

Designing and implementing digital transformational change successfully is dependant on an organisation’s digital IQ; how well its leaders define, lead and communicate the transformation. However, it is also dependent of the digital qualifications of the employees who need to roll out digital processes and services.

Join us at this briefing event for senior business leaders, at which Professor Andrew Callaghan – who has spent over 25 years delivering strategy for blue chip companies – will explore the following topics:

  • Designing and implementing an Industry 4.0 (digital) strategy
  • Understanding the key benefits including reducing costs and opportunities to create new revenue
  • How to unlock these benefits by digitising:
    a. Product and service offerings
    b. Vertical and horizontal value chains
    c. Business models and customer access

There will also be an opportunity to talk with experts from the wider team at the University of Nottingham, who can advise on the breadth of support and expertise available to businesses. If you have an R&D project in mind, a training or executive education priority, or even graduate recruitment need, our team will be happy to discuss the various programmes and schemes available to assist your company.
