Step 1: The right mindset
Industry 4.0 is not about technology, but about a new way of thinking and working. It starts with dreaming again. Ask yourself the following question: what do I want to achieve with my organization? Put it on paper and use it as a guide to devise intermediate steps.
Step 2: Dare to experiment
Industry 4.0 is not about one big step, but about a collection of small steps that together lead to something big. Do not set up large projects, but make small experiments. Let them grow with success and, in case of failure, just cancel them again.
Step 3: Go innovate
What is needed to make your dream come true? Other processes? New expertise? Other machines? Fresh collaborations? Release the issues of the day and make a list of possible intermediate steps that can contribute to the larger goal.
Step 4: Embrace change
Experiments give new possibilities and new insights. Embrace the change this brings to your organization and use the flexibility to keep moving. At least as important: dare to go back to step 1 and re-evaluate your ambition.
