The recently released ARC Advisory Group report, Industrial Digital Transformation Top 25 for 2022, profiles 25 companies that are winning at digital transformation. The companies span multiple industrial sectors and include firms such as Ford, HP, Pfizer, Rio Tinto, and others.
According to Arc, leaders prioritize transformation in six key areas: products, services, operations, design and construction, supply chain, and business processes. They’re also adept at expanding pilot projects into scalable business transformation.
So, how do industrial companies change at pace? They empower the operational frontline and plan for rapid knowledge transfer, say Arc analysts.
Today’s workers are shifting jobs more frequently, which is reducing the lifecycle of an employee. This is driving the need for operational leaders to be more focused on providing decision making tools for the workforce. In other words, workers need to understand immediately where to turn for answers. This is vastly different from providing classes of educational training. Recognizing increasing complexities on the shop floor and making technology more accessible to enable people to collaborate with the experts and intelligent software that can guide them on their next steps, are truly transformative measures unlocking significant value and productivity boosts.
In our view, this research offers a compelling business case for increasing manufacturing adoption of modern connected workforce solutions, which can enable rapid productivity growth, while delivering compelling ROI that business stakeholders and investors value.
