Organizing Work in Industry 4.0
Best practices and multilevel organizational charts rule the business world.
But in their quest for smart work design, executives typically forget one fact: In real life, things almost never go as planned. This program helps executives understand how continuous improvement strategies, sustained over a long period of time, affect core business metrics and business development strategy and contribute to the success of the organization.
This course equips managers with a fundamental understanding of Industry 4.0 concepts through the principles of Dynamic Work Design—as well as their own approach to change management—which can be improved for optimal business benefits.
- Understand a sustainable approach to Industry 4.0 connecting the way managers see work and their own roles as leaders
- Understand the principles and approaches that drive improvement; and apply them in all areas in the context of a particular company, thus creating a tangible culture of continuous improvement
- Implement improvement naturally in their everyday work, not from a prescribed list, but from a deep personal understanding of the principles
- Recognize successful improvement initiatives already in place and build on them
- Identify the true value-added aspects of work performed by individual workers and the entire organization
- Ensure that business targets and improvement activities are tightly linked at every level enabling informational transparency at all levels
- Develop inquiry and evidence-based problem-solving skills for individuals and for organizations for rapid feedback and problem-solving.
- Transform managers from controllers to enablers by leveraging the relationship between designing the work well and the engagement of employees that follows
- Make results (and problems) visible so that they can be addressed constructively
- Not just remove defects, but learn how to design work correctly from the beginning
- Practical exercises
