    €110.00
    +vat
    The 2018-2019 Research at the Industry 4.0 Observatory added a new chapter, dedicated to the human factor: in addition to the “Skills” topic, this year we also considered the topic of organization, in the dual meanings of macro organization and micro organization; in fact, digital technologies change the type of contribution required from workers (from manual to intellectual), the dynamics of decision making (from prescriptive/centralized to adaptive/distributed) and the interaction between people (towards greater multifunctionality and collaboration).

    The report is aimed at presenting industrial applications of augmented and virtual reality. In the first chapter, augmented and virtual reality technologies are introduced together with other combinations of the real and the virtual worlds that have been lastly emerging: mixed reality, augmented virtuality, extended reality. Then, the key elements to realise industrial applications are illustrated: hardware (AR/VR devices), software (AR/VR platforms), and the role of users (i.e.workers). Industry 4.0 observatory has identified seven main areas of applications of AR/VR technologies based on a database of 170 AR/VR projects gathered during the last five years of research. So, the report provides examples of such applications, highlighting the general benefits obtained from the AR/VR projects.

    €190.00
    +vat
    HR Management is increasingly aware of the ongoing digital transformation and yet there is a frequent lack of structured strategies to sustain this change, strategies formulated by building on the business plan, in order to develop skills, roles and leadership styles (People Strategy). The road still seems long, and challenging times await HR Management over the next few years: to help people adapt to a professional world which is changing as fast as digital technology itself.

    Building an organisation for the future starting from people: the role of the HR Department in digital transformation

    €190.00
    +vat
    Digital transformation is entering into every area of people’s lives, changing how we live, learn, work and interact. It is a proper revolution, where digital innovation is calling the shots, changing the rules of the workplace and provoking an increasingly burning debate about their medium-long term implications for employment. The events taking place can be seen as a perfect storm, a driving force that is compelling organisations to innovate by putting practices and processes into discussion. The function of the HR Director is evolving within this landscape, taking on the increasingly important role of enabling the development and sourcing of key skills for organisations (digital or not) and of guiding the process of change.
