Management of processes, business models and people

December 14, 2021 | In this video interview, Dr. Nadja Hoßbach is looking at data-driven processes, business models and the people in the organization in the context of Industry 4.0.

After all, the introduction of new technologies is always also a question of economic efficiency – it only makes sense if these make business processes more efficient, reduce costs or enable additional services. The human factor also plays a key role in the success and productivity of Industry 4.0 technologies and applications. That is why we look at all phases of digitization from a behavioral and social science perspective. Learn more in the video interview!
