Event description

Description

Competing in today’s increasingly digitalised world and winning in the fourth industrial revolution requires global context and market access, entrepreneurial leadership, a culture of innovation and the adoption of new emerging technologies. But above all, it requires a different set of thinking.


Over the course of the workshop, we will shine a spotlight on leadership, strategy, innovation and digital manufacturing (Industry 4.0). Designed for Australian manufacturing SMEs; the workshop is intended to help manufacturers to think differently about the opportunities that emerging digital technologies and new business models pose for their business.


//Who should attend?

Top-level representatives of manufacturing businesses (business owners, executives e.g. CEO, General Manager).

As places are limited, only 2 participants per organisation.


//Why should you attend?

Whether you are new to digital manufacturing or well on the journey, the futuremap workshop will give you valuable insights into the current state of your business and then have you consider where you aspire to be and by when.

Interactive and packed with industry examples, the workshop is intended to help you

  • think differently about the opportunities and challenges of digital manufacturing;

  • map the current state of your business with respect to capabilities and characteristics vital for future competitiveness and success, and compare this to where you aspire to be in two years from now;

  • understand the primary gaps between your current state and your aspirations, to assist you to develop your key areas of focus and potential investment; and

  • understand where assistance may be sought to help you on your transition to digital manufacturing.

Prepare to be inspired, learn, and grow as you spend the morning assessing and mapping your business’ manufacturing capabilities and characteristics using futuremap, a business diagnostic tool developed by IMCRC in collaboration with industry partners. As we guide you through futuremap, you will hear about Australian manufacturers who are already embracing digital technologies to transform their business.
