Smart Factories are a Reality

84 percent of respondents to Capgemini’s global Smart Factories Report claimed to have a “smart factory” initiative in place, in which web-connected manufacturing processes based on advanced automation and robotics are deployed alongside big data analytics and the internet of things (IoT) to improve the productivity, quality and efficiency of a factory.

In the same report, over half of the manufacturing executives surveyed (56%) said they’d invested over $100 million in such initiatives over the last five years, with 20 percent claiming to have invested $500 million or more.

There is need for knowledge sharing by successful people.

Using a randomized field experiment with 100 high-growth technology firms, we show that founders who received advice from other founders with more “hands-on” management styles were more likely to reorient their own management activity and, subsequently, experience lower employee attrition and higher rates of firm survival eight months after the intervention.

Over the last several months, the author had a series of conversations with middle managers across companies of all sizes. Four topics: education, success, work environment, and value were expressed as concerns by many of them. Focusing on these four areas and developing measures to overcome these concerns will generate support from management teams and help build a strong positive culture that will aid the future development of the organization.
