International Business Report (IBR) di Grant Thornton su Industria 4.0 e leadership del futuro

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 24 giugno 2019

Il mondo imprenditoriale sta attraversando un’ondata di cambiamenti dirompenti che sembrano ormai destinati ad innescare una Quarta Rivoluzione Industriale. Nell’era dell’Industria 4.0 sarà la tecnologia a determinare le trasformazioni più rilevanti influenzando praticamente tutti i settori e modificando gran parte delle professioni. Secondo l’International Business Report (IBR) di Grant Thornton del 2019 – ricerca globale effettuata sui dirigenti di imprese del mid-market – l’avanzamento del mondo digitale sarà il fattore di cambiamento più influente secondo il 42% degli intervistati. A seguire l’intelligenza artificiale e i big data (40%) e un maggior utilizzo dell’automazione e della robotica (35%).
Per Michele Milano, Vicepresidente e Partner di Ria Grant Thornton, “tra i cambiamenti in corso la tecnologia non sarà l’unico settore ad influenzare il mondo del lavoro e le capacità di imprenditori e manager di guidare imprese innovative e competitive. Il 32% degli intervistati dell’IBR cita la globalizzazione di risorse quali i mezzi finanziari e la proprietà intellettuale mentre il 30% dichiara rilevanti gli effetti sul lavoro legati ai cambiamenti demografici e generazionali. Altri elementi in gioco fondamentali di cui tener conto saranno le aspettative in merito alle buone pratiche etiche e di sostenibilità ambientale realmente adottate dalle aziende, in relazione all’Agenda ONU 2030 dei 17 obiettivi di sviluppo sostenibile post gli storici Accordi di Parigi del 2015. Queste variabili stanno stimolando un complessivo cambiamento dei valori sociali e aziendali e del modo di fare impresa. Recentemente la Grant Thornton, con i nostri soci in Italia, ha sostenuto il Premio Industria Felix col patrocinio di Confindustria e abbiamo partecipato a premiare le migliori 170 aziende PMI in termini di performance aziendale nelle Regioni Lombardia, Emilia Romagna e Lazio sulla base dell’analisi di 55.000 bilanci 2018. Parlando con gli imprenditori premiati è emersa l’attualità di molti degli argomenti citati in questo International Business Report (IBR) di Grant Thornton e di altri aspetti strategici vincenti come la capacità del senior management di saper adottare comportamenti nuovi per coinvolgere ed ascoltare di più e meglio le generazione più giovani che entrano nelle organizzazioni lavorative e che sono più allenate alla velocità e a saper anticipare le innovazioni nei mercati e ad intercettare le domande di nuovi servizi e prodotti. Il network Grant Thornton nel mondo è presente con 53.000 professionisti in 140 nazioni, tra cui l’Italia con uffici in 18 città. Il dna professionale e di mentalità imprenditoriale e orientamento al business dei soci è molto simile a quello dei clienti che sono principalmente PMI ad alto tasso innovativo e di crescita sui mercati domestici e internazionali”.Per Gabriele Labombarda, Partner e IBC Director di Bernoni Grant Thornton, “l’innovazione tecnologica, l’intelligenza artificiale applicata ai Big Data, l’automazione e la robotizzazione dei processi sono ormai divenuti asset strategici per le imprese, in assenza dei quali è difficile restare competitivi. Data la continua evoluzione che questi fattori impongono ai processi aziendali, è fondamentale che chi riveste un ruolo di guida possegga forte propensione al cambiamento e all’innovazione. La curiosità e la capacità di adattamento sono le doti che oggi non possono mancare in un leader: il successo sarà il risultato della tensione al cambiamento e della propensione a innovare. Dare ai giovani talenti la possibilità di sbagliare” prosegue Labombarda – “seguendo strade innovative, imparando dagli errori, in un ambiente che li stimoli a rivoluzionare modus operandi consolidati nel passato, sarà certamente vincente”.
