Our next challenge: the body gap
(page 2 of 2)
Only disruptive change and innovation across the three Ts will generate transformation. Our organizations face a critical decision: disrupt or be disrupted. It’s much easier to stay on the slow-and-steady path and live with the status quo and incremental change. After all, it’s worked in the past, right? The difference now is that there are companies in every industry exploring new ways to engage customers in order to upset entire markets. Accelerating technological change enables more and more upstart companies to challenge incumbents. Are you willing to bet your future that another Uber won’t disrupt your industry?
Fortunately, great Wisconsin resources and alliances are available to transform organizations. The expertise and dedication these people bring to complex situations lowers the risk of transformational change. If you’re looking to start this journey, be sure you pick a partner that can demonstrate impact and who shows a willingness to find the best resources — even (especially) if it means someone else benefits. Effective change pathways are well developed, but require a leap of faith in order to move forward. That faith and the right partners will lead to transformation.
I’m optimistic about our future and the changes we can make together. Wisconsinites enjoy challenges and working together to build a brighter tomorrow. We did a great job addressing the skills gap and serve as a shining example to the rest of the country. That’s a terrific warm-up for tackling the body gap. We will certainly succeed once again. We have the will, the expertise, and the alliances necessary to keep our part of the world in the forefront of manufacturing.
