With emerging technologies and new capabilities, manufacturers must adjust to the current realities of the marketplace. Companies that are able to take advantage of our new age of interconnectedness with customers, suppliers, partners and employees will emerge as the leaders of tomorrow.


But capitalizing on this new technology driven marketplace will take agility and speed. In our interviews with leaders in this space, the challenge is clear: companies must be able to balance this faster pace of innovation without risking their investments in plant and equipment.


The goal of training departments within the manufacturing industry should be focused on teaching employees how to utilize the right resources and set the right priorities that lead to profitability.
