45% of industrial organizations are already engaged in Industrial Transformation, and the leaders are citing “dramatic results.”

Companies are going beyond standard practices in Continuous Improvement (CI) as they seek step change improvement in their industrial operations.  Join our webcast “Industrial Transformation Readiness: Success Lessons from Real-World Leaders” to identify the best practices and life lessons for a successful Industrial Transformation (IX) program.

The webinar is based on a global survey by LNS seeking to understand why the outcomes of IX program vary so widely. There’s a clear distinction between how the Industrial Transformation Leaders (IX Leaders) define and execute IX programs and the rest of the market, the Followers. Among the many differences, IX Leaders are 41% more likely to focus on business and 60% less likely to make “evaluating/testing IIoT and other technologies” a core strategy.

What you will learn:

  • What IX Leaders are doing differently to achieve transformative outcomes
  • How Industrial Transformation drives Digital Transformation
  • The global state of IX programs
  • Which organization structures and budget constraints emerge among IX programs
  • What technology choices IX leaders make
  • Why legacy Operational Technology (OT) and business systems impact IX programs
  • Five best practices for a successful IX program
