Management 4.0 - Man or Machine?

The rapidly increasing digitalisation of the economy and society leads to major upheaval and permanently altered production and working methods. Estimates of the dynamics of the developments and the resulting interactions are not unique, but it is understood that the digital transformation will result in drastic and fundamental changes of economic and societal structures and orders.

Characteristic of the fourth industrial revolution "Industry 4.0" is the integration of the production with the most modern information and communication technology. Intelligent, digitally networked systems enable a largely self-organized production. Old business models are changing, new ones are added. What are the effects of the digital transition in the management of business?

The EWMD Germany Conference "Management 4.0 - Man or Machine" addresses the following question:

  • What kind of leaders are needed control this process? 
  • What is important to be considered? What can you do?     
  • Which role models already exist?     
  • Is Germany already behind compared to other countries?

This conference provides managers and entrepreneurs a high-profile platform for national dialogue, for new impulses and contacts. The conference will be held in Essen, a city that is dominated by industrial change.
