The requirement profile Industrie 4.0 for executives

In 2011 the German Government presented a project named Industrie 4.0 that should revolutionize the German economy with its innovative high-tech-strategies and lead to increases in production and efficiency in a variety of sectors. Admittedly, executives have especially to catch up in technical areas and are not yet ready for the challenges of Industrie 4.0. This finally raises the question: How does the fourth industrial revolution affect the requirement profile of executives? For answering this question a study was conducted with executives of the management boards of mechanical, plant and electrical engineering companies with direct references to Industrie 4.0. The results show that the promotion program Industrie 4.0 together with the development of society has led to a changed understanding of leadership. Out of these conclusions a general requirement profile for the modern executive in the era of Industrie 4.0 can be deduced, the requirement profile 4.0.
