"Manufacturing is undergoing a change that is every bit as significant as the introduction of interchangeable parts or the production line, maybe even more so. The future is not going to be about stretched-out global supply chains connected to a web of distant giant factories. It's about small, nimble manufacturing operations using highly sophisticated new tools and new materials."
A revolution in manufacturing is creating smart, connected factories with new levels of flexibility, precision, and collaboration. Technological advances allow new ways of fabricating things that represent an extreme departure from the classic production-line model.

Phenomena are shaping business environments
There is a lot happening. To better understand what is going on, we research current topics and produce independent studies on chosen themes and phenomena. These studies summarize a comprehensive picture of chosen subjects.
Board of directors and management teams at all level benefit from our studies. The sooner your team has a common conceptual platform to discuss and understand a matter the better it results out in your strategy, management design, shape of the organization and talent management.
