What impact will the Fourth Industrial Revolution have on business and business strategy?
We already see that there is significant impact on business as we know it today.
With a focus/demand on growing business transparency and changes in market and industry responses and end-user behavior changes emerging, companies have to adapt the way they design, market and deliver products and services to remain competitive.
Current Organisational Status – In large, studies find that there are 4 types of organisational responses to the Fourth Industrial Revolution:
Those leading change
Those surviving for now
Those in denial
Those that have already thrown in the towel
Question remains – where do you fit?
With access to new technologies that change the way they serve existing needs, innovative companies can oust well-established INDUSTRIES, BUSINESSES, BUSINESS PROCESS and/or PRODUCTS faster and easier than ever before. Access to global digital platforms that improve the way we research, develop, market, sell and distribute can help companies to improve quality, cost or speed of delivery – BUT THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE INDUSTRY AND END-USER, AND THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.
One of the unique trends that the Fourth Industrial Revolution has created is the development of technology-enabled platforms which fuse the demand and supply to deliver a new way of consuming goods and services. This brings forth an industry of “sharing” platforms which utilises PEOPLE, ASSETS, DATA and PREVIOUSLY DEEMED USP’S in a developmental, research, mobile platform supported by leading technology applications.
At its core, the Fourth Industrial Revolution has brought forth FOUR MAIN CHANGES TO BUSINESS:
With the end-user at the epicentre of the economy, everything is and will continue to shift towards improving how the customer is served. The customer will start making service choices relevant to the “up-to-date” service methodology/product offered.
PURCHASING RISK EVALUATION – the end-user will rather risk new leading than trusted old.
What is your end-user expectation and will you influence their decision making process?
In your current Organisational Strategy – are you future-relevant?
Products and Services will be enhanced, replaced and made redundant given capabilities through digital enhancements, which will have an impact on their value – changing with the future will allow your products and services to be more durable and therefore relevant.
Collaboration will be key to the success of understanding the wide impact and influence of:
What Leading Looks Like
Who/What and Where do you Compete
ARE YOU STILL RELEVANT
As a single player in a team, you will become irrelevant. IN BUSINESS, the team has become a lot bigger, wider and influential. However, you will have to make a decision to COLLABORATE and LEAD YOUR COLLABORATION EFFORT – THAT WILL PUT YOU FIRST.
New business models and platforms are creating and will further influence NEW TALENT, CULTURE, LEADERSHIP STYLE, ETHICS, PERFORMANCE MEASURES, CONTRACTING, GEOGRAPHY AND ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURES.
The transition from the Third to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, like before, require companies to re-examine the way they think and conduct business; the only difference being that this will have to be done in less than 10% of the time spent on this before.
" ORGANISATIONS WILL BECOME IRRELEVANT WITHIN A PERIOD OF 12 MONTHS – there will be no delay in future-survival results.
BUSINESS LEADERS NEED TO REMAIN RELENTLESS IN THEIR PURSUIT OF INNOVATION TO STAY – FIRST, RELEVANT AND SECOND, COMPETITIVE."
– Gary Coleman, Global Industry and Senior Client Advisor, Deloitte Consulting
KEEP THE FOLLOWING TOP OF MIND:
Change has increase 50 fold over the past 25 years.
Change will increase 50 fold over the next 5 years.
The world has become one – you are now competing against the best in a Global Market.
End-users can buy Products and Services from across the Globe – there are no longer borders.
Computer Technology will replace some Task Orientated Jobs; it is our responsibility to secure jobs. Where, what and how do we up-skill and re-skill for future employment?
READING THIS MAKES YOU RESPONSIBLE
Already, artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us, from self-driving cars and drones to virtual assistants and software that translate or invest. Impressive progress has been made in AI in recent years, driven by exponential increases in computing power and by the availability of vast amounts of data, from software used to discover new drugs to algorithms used to predict our cultural interest. Digital fabrication technologies, meanwhile, are interacting with the biological world on a daily basis.
For Example: Engineers, Designers, and Architects are combining computational design, additive manufacturing, materials engineering, and synthetic biology to pioneer a symbiosis between micro-organisms, our bodies, the products we consume, and even the buildings we inhabit.
