Organizations are facing unprecedented challenges and increasing demand brought about by the emergence of new technologies. This new digital era is known as the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, characterized by the digital transformation of our world and the unavoidable interaction between humans, digital technologies and physical assets. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is creating an increasingly fast-paced and complex environment, requiring organizations to be more agile, better equipped to adapt what they do, and ready to adopt new ways of working to succeed.
