Manufacturers are optimistic about the industrial metaverse and are exploring ways it can create value in their talent, supply chain, customer, and production ecosystems, reveals the 2023 Deloitte and Manufacturing Leadership Council (MLC) Industrial Metaverse Study.
In a boundaryless world, work isn’t defined by jobs, the workplace isn’t a specific place, and many workers aren’t traditional employees. Those who partner with workers and experiment with what’s possible will create sustainable work models and elevated outcomes—making work better for humans and humans better at work.
To lead in this boundaryless world, organizations and workers should activate their curiosity, looking at each decision as an experiment that will expedite impact and generate new insights. Differentiation and winning will come not from always believing you must have the right answer at the start, but by being able to challenge orthodoxies, operate with humility and empathy, and learn from new information so you can refine as quickly as possible.
To be successful, organizations and workers will need to learn to navigate this new world together, cocreating new rules, new boundaries, and a new relationship. That means ownership models and value must shift. Organizations should abandon former illusions of complete control and recognize the role they play in living, evolving ecosystems, as workers assume greater influence and accountability for organizational and societal outcomes, leading hand in hand with the organization.
