What you need to thrive in Industry 4.0

Written by Hans Vernimme on 20 February 2019 for Companies

The world is changing. Get ready for what lies ahead.

According to the World Economic Forum, in five years, over one-third of skills that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed. Innovations such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing, genetic editing and more are no longer science fiction but near future.

Companies need to anticipate and embrace this technological and digital (r)evolution. But most of all, talent needs to be prepared today in order to tackle the innovations of tomorrow.

A look in the review mirror

Before moving forward it’s always good to have a sense of the past. How did we end up here and what defined the previous industrial revolutions?

Core competencies for future-fit digital leaders

Finding qualified talent in IT, science and engineering will become the main challenge of companies preparing for industry 4.0. But aside from knowledge, hard skills and technological expertise, the right mindset to be able to keep innovating is key.

Talent has to be prepared for future challenges in order to reach a leadership level. Innovation, co-creation and flexibility are competencies that will become even more important, as well as driving results, nimble learning and customer focus.

Traditional education cannot keep up with the speed of change

Industry 4.0 is coming at a fast and exponential pace. Our current education system is not prepared for training the tech talent that is needed to drive the innovations of tomorrow. Classical jobs are disappearing and new challenges are arising, but education is stuck in between.

Exellys bridges this gap. We are enriching IT, science and engineering talent by combining hands-on training, self-development, deep learning tracks and practical experience through internships, graduate programs and career accelerators for young professionals. This way, fast learning and practice are integrated to shape qualified and dedicated future-fit digital leaders.

A steep learning curve

Constantly sharpening your skills has never been more important. Through hands-on workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions and deep dive technical tracks we’ll make sure that the next generation is ready for whatever industry 4.0 might throw at them.

We bridge their ambition to excellence
