IRC Industrial/Production Practice Group


I see the industrious
manufacturing industry is confronting uncertainty
in the phase of digitization, and new customer expectation. Customers increasingly
seek improved efficiency and production transparency from connective technologies
and digitization. By my reckoning, a significant
portion of new sales growth for industrial equipment manufacturers in the immediate future will come from connected
equipment with sensors, actuators, and analytical
insight that can exchange critical data with other machines, and computer networks in
a realtime via the cloud. Leaders in industrial sector need to understand digitalization’s
comprehensive impact on their lives and business strategy. That means transforming employee mindsets, and ensuring the recruitment of new talent is properly addressing
the needed skillsets to develop new products and services, and achieve speed and agility
that’s required in e-commerce, and the Internet of Things. The consequences for
not doing it are dire. As search consultants, we
are seeing a mix of clients taking both reactive
and proactive approaches to improving operational readiness around product development, manufacturing systems,
and order fulfillment. The reactive approach is
typically the more costly. We work closely with our
clients to secure talent that meets today’s demands, but ideally are also able
to steer the business through unpredictable change. The biggest challenge
for industrial manufacturing companies in the process
of digital transformation isn’t the technology, it’s the people. Success will depend
largely on the digital IQ of leaders and their teams. Leaders must deploy and enhance change management capabilities
to help ease their people through this radical disruption, working closely with
teams across all functions before, during, and after implementation. This means building a culture
of resilience and speed. Our clients can truly
