After GM, Krach helped found Rasna, the engineering design software company that created the category of “Mechanical Design Synthesis” and before it was sold to Parametric Technologies. Krach has also served as chairman of the board of trustees for Purdue University, chairman of the board of Angie’s List, and International President of Sigma Chi fraternity.The award will be made at Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s Annual Policy Luncheon on October 25th at the Santa Clara Convention Center, where Krach will share his inspiring journey with more than 1,300 attendees.

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”.

L’Europa comunitaria alle prese con una leadership inconsistente

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 novembre 2018

Siamo governati in Europa, e in alcuni casi anche altrove, da una classe politica mediocre e soprattutto incapace di valutare nella sua interezza i mutamenti in atto per poterli tradurre in interessi generali e non limitati a consorterie di dubbia origine. Anche ora che si stanno incrociando le spade tra i vari contendenti l’unico polverone che si è in grado di sollevare sono le polemiche sterili come è il recente caso che ha visto duramente contrapposti il ministro degli esteri lussemburghese e degli interni Matteo Salvini. Ma in questa sciocca diatriba ciò che ci ha colpiti di più sono state le giustificazioni di Asselborn che lo hanno fatto arretrare di almeno un secolo quando le nazioni contavano qualcosa solo se il loro numero di abitanti era elevato. Se fosse in buona fede, allorché afferma che gli immigrati per il paese che li ospita sono una risorsa, mi chiedo il perché non si adopera ad ospitarli in gran numero insieme a tutti i suoi colleghi, dalla Francia in testa, che si guardano bene d’aprire le loro frontiere allo “straniero”. La verità è che l’immigrazione di oggi è la conseguenza delle logiche colonialiste, post colonialiste e delle attuali inciuci con i governanti corrotti di alcuni paesi africani e del vicino oriente che hanno provocato uno sfruttamento selvaggio delle risorse energetiche e minerarie di quei paesi, impoverendoli. Ad aggravare il tutto si è aggiunto il revanscismo tedesco che non potendo scatenare una terza guerra mondiale ha giocato la carta dell’economia arricchendosi a spese delle altre nazioni e condizionandole con i loro alti debiti pubblici. Non sarebbe andata in questo modo se vi fosse stato negli anni passati una maggiore solidarietà tra gli stati e la capacità di contenere la sete di potere dei governi tedeschi, di cui la Merkel è la più accanita sostenitrice, bilanciandola con una comunità europea più forte e determinata.
L’Europa, infatti, non si costruisce sulle debolezze altrui ma si consolida attraverso un impegno comune per cercare di portare allo stesso livello di crescita e di prosperità tutti gli stati. (fonte: Centri studi Fidest)
