Embracing change and uncertainty with learning – Insights for Executive Education development
This pandemic happened as we entered what often has been described as the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). As COVID-19 takes the public centre-stage, 4IR has started to gather speed and is dramatically reshaping businesses and our lives. Recent data show that we have vaulted five years forward in consumer and business digital adoption in a matter of around eight weeks. Banks have transitioned to remote sales and service teams and launched digital outreach, propelling fundamental questions of the necessity of physical outlets. Grocery stores have shifted to online ordering and delivery, creating an entirely new operating model and shopping experience. Manufacturers are actively developing plans for “lights out” factories and supply chains, pushing for reconfiguration of the value chain from production to logistics.
