Uncertainty is a constant across all industries. Rapid advancements in the digital age — robotics, augmented reality, Internet of Intelligent Things, cognitive computing — further exacerbate that uncertainty. Getting a handle on the advancements that are disrupting the world’s value chains is no longer enough. Inadequate systems, processes and resources can no longer keep up. Dealing with uncertainty in the digital age requires a reinvention of business practices and clarity of vision. It's not just about having the knowledge, but also about utilizing it to benefit your operations and bottom line.
