Success personified in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Four leadership personas for an era of change and uncertainty

Industry 4.0 holds the promise of a new era of globalization. Yet while our latest survey identifies companies successfully implementing Industry 4.0 technologies, many senior executives remain less prepared than they think they are.

As industry 4.0 continues to reshape the world in which we live and work, business leaders across every industry are having to strategically approach the many changes it is causing. In Deloitte Global’s second annual survey assessing business and government readiness for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we aimed to uncover how leaders are moving forward, where they are making the most progress, and what sets apart the most effective leaders.

This year’s report based on responses from more than 2,000 C-suite executives across 19 countries reveals that some are making better progress than others in dealing with today’s challenges across the four major areas of Industry 4.0’s impact – society, strategy, technology and talent.

The report also groups leaders who have seen the most success addressing these areas into four personas – Social Supers, Data-Driven Decisives, Disruption Drivers and Talent Champions.
