A practical approach to Industry 4.0
14 Aug 2019
Article featured the recent seminar on Human Capital Development in Industry 4.0 that was conducted by the Institute of Policy Studies. The seminar brought together business owners, educational institutions, futurists and policy-makers to define the ambiguous Industry 4.0 term and to discuss how businesses, workers and policy-makers can adapt to the changing times. One key idea explored was how businesses can adapt to the gig economy that is preferred by the younger generation, due to its project oriented nature and flexible work schedule. An example mentioned was SP’s AGILE programme which lets students work on a gig basis as part of the curriculum to gain recognition for their work and valuable industry knowledge even before they receive their diplomas.
