This webinar addresses key management challenges in Industry 4.0 from a practical integrated perspective, which sees business operations as collective tools, methods and insights for decision-making processes and for functional decisions from a wider, systemic perspective. The primary objective of the webinar is to enable  participants to map, identify and analyze key issues and challenges involved in Industry 4.0 and design possible research, management and policy solutions to challenges presented. The webinar explores complicated interdisciplinary issues and problems faced by researchers, managers, and policy makers in concrete contexts in Industry 4.0, leading theories, models and tools with emphasis on the bigger ecosystems companies and policy making institutions operate. The webinar adopts an ‘outside-in’ approach, which means that factors external to specific companies and organizations, logics and developments are the starting point of analysing emerging problems, designing solutions, and organizing decision-making and implementation strategies at corporate and policy-making levels. These issues are explored on three distinct but interrelated levels: micro, meso, and macro.


This event is part of a IN4ACT Webinar Series, organized by ERA Chair project “Industry 4.0 impact on management practices and economics” (IN4ACT). Find out more about upcoming webinars HERE.
