GAIN CONFIDENCE TO LEAD
YOUR FUTURE TEAMS
WITH OUR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION BOOTCAMP FOR LEADERS AND MANAGERS
WORKING IN THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
In 2021, understanding the tools used in your organisation is the key.
Based on a report Published by MakeUK and Sage in The Skills Challenge 2020:
‘The British manufacturing workforce must be comfortable with new technologies. Instead of fearing artificial intelligence and ‘robots’ taking their jobs, professionals need to understand that in the short and long term, technologies and new business models can boost productivity and allow them to focus on less repetitive, more business intensive activities. It’s even more impertinent for Senior leaders and Managers to have both commercial and technical knowledge.’
What manufacturing data tells us?
Within two weeks of lockdown, nearly half of manufacturers had already shifted to digital working practices, with 94% having staff working from home.
91% say that they have benefitted from the adoption of new technology, and eight in ten now plan to continue using technology that they have adopted.
Most were indeed well prepared, having invested in digital skills over the past 12 months.
However, a third of manufacturers have not undertaken digital skills training this past year.
Two-thirds recently reported a lack of confidence to keep pace with the digital skills they might need.
If two-thirds of manufacturers would gain the confidence to keep the pace with the necessary digital skills, then...
The global economy would gain $5 trillion. Additional GDP potential due to upskilling in manufacturing could increase to 4.4% by 2030. Automation is likely to have a transformative effect on the manufacturing industry, with PwC research estimating that up to 45% of jobs could be automated by the end of the 2030s.

What is Digital Transformation?
Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It’s also a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and get comfortable with failure. It’s also defined as: Customer experience, Operational agility, Culture and leadership, Workforce enablement, Digital technology integration
What is Internet of Things (IOT)?
In a nutshell, the Internet of Things is the concept of connecting any device (so long as it has an on/off switch) to the Internet and to other connected devices. That includes an extraordinary number of objects of all shapes and sizes – from smart microwaves, which automatically cook your food for the right length of time, to self-driving cars, whose complex sensors detect objects in their path, to wearable fitness devices that measure your heart rate.
What are Principles of AI and Automation?
Human augmentation, Bias evaluation, Explainability by justification, Reproducible operations, Practical accuracy, Trust by privacy, Data risk awareness

IS DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION FOR ME?
It’s evident that in this new world, technology is not a choice, but a fundamental business strategy that must be interwoven into every part of an organisation. Transformation can enable better collaboration within and between organisations, more personalised ways of customer engagement, higher employee innovation and productivity, and more accurate insights from data, all of which help a business grow and give it a better chance of thriving post-pandemic.
When it comes to digital transformation, it’s tempting to fixate on the digital part—the platforms and processes—rather than the transformation part. The idea that you could just buy the right software and instantly increase productivity is appealing. But fundamentally, digital transformation is about changing how teams work together, not just what tech they’re using to get that work done.
