Global Operations Strategy in the Digital World

Digital operations, or Industry 4.0, is on its way to wide adoption around the globe, and is revolutionizing manufacturing and supply chain industries. While the benefits are well known, this change brings about some unique challenges and opportunities. 

Distinct from Industry 3.0, which involved the automation of single machines and processes, Industry 4.0 encompasses end-to-end digitization and data integration of the value chain: offering digital products and services, operating connected physical and virtual assets, transforming and integrating all operations and internal activities, building partnerships, and optimizing customer-facing activities. 

Mastering Industry 4.0 requires a deep understanding of collaboration, the commitment of top management, and a clear strategy. Companies that fail to embrace this radical change will likely struggle to survive. 

In this course, we will revisit the core foundations of operations and supply chain management in the context of globalization and digitization.
