“The Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) represents the combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things.
Leadership 4.0 is about leaders creating their own digital transformation strategy and ensure it is aligned with the business and growth plans of their organization. This is achieved by demonstrating effectively the suite of nextgen leadership competencies of cognitive readiness which include critical thinking, innovative thinking along with emotional and social intelligence skills such as empathy and relationship management.”
The highly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous and chaotic changes brought about by the internet over the last twenty years are nothing compared to what is to come over the next few years. No industry, no organisation is immune from the threat of digital disruption and with labour markets being transformed by artificial intelligence and automation, no individual is immune. The next generation of transformation leaders at all levels is required to drive digital transformation and to lead in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0).
Is your organisation ready for Industry 4.0? Are you ready?
Whether operating in the public or private sectors, in large MNCs or SMEs; participants using various practical tools, frameworks, and templates provided during the workshop, you will gain the key skills and personal confidence to become an effective digital change leader within the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution which are characterised by a highly disruptive, ever increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and uncertain (collectively known as VUCA) business environment.
The Digital Economy as part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution 4.0 has made a significant impact on companies of all sizes across various sectors. In each case, the impact is a different one which makes it essential for companies to have a good understanding and view of what they face and how the Digital Economy will disrupt their company: which opportunities can be seized and which threats have to be faced? Digitization has been happening all around us for years and as consumers, we just expect to have the information we want at our fingertips and have become accustomed to companies making personalized recommendations for us and understanding our online behavior.
Digital acumen is essential for business leaders in today’s hyper-competitive, technology-enabled world. But most companies lack the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the digital aspects of their business, according to a survey of 436 business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services.

The various modules and content outlined in this program are proven in its success.
