Digitally connected industrial production in the context of Industry 4.0 not only promises faster and more efficient manufacturing processes, but also offers the potential to design and implement new business models. A high degree of agility, flexibility and the ability to learn is essential for companies to be able to adapt dynamically in the context of an ever-changing environment. It is not only necessary to build up and expand the necessary technological (e.g. AI) and data-related competencies, but also to align the organizational structure and culture of a company accordingly.
