Companies tumble over the chance of a big win
Many medium-sized companies struggle to adapt well to the industry 4.0. That is not only due to high initial investment costs, but also to the absence of overall concepts.
Whoever asks Lutz Tilker why medium-sized companies struggle to adapt to digitalization will quickly get a clear response: ‘Human Resources are a key function for medium-sized company digitalization”. However, many smaller and medium-sized businesses simply lack this specific awareness. Human Resources often deal mostly with employment agreements, while development and further training in digitalization is neglected. Industry 4.0 is reduced to the use of new technologies and economic optimization.
