IoT connects the world!

Interview with Benoît Andrade, Managing Partner of Arrowman Executive Search

Interview by Olivier Durand

Connected objects are being deployed in every sector. Not only in the world of manufacturing, but also in FMCG. Figures attest to this, according to Gartner’s survey, there were 20 billion connected objects in 2017, and there will be 75 billion in 2025. But let’s start from the beginning, what really is Internet of Things?

“It’s the universe of interconnected physical objects that generate artificial intelligence. They have the ability to autonomously take initiatives without human intervention. They communicate with each other and facilitate decision making by transmitting real-time information.”

SMART INDUSTRY

The French industry will not be uberized. The 4th industrial revolution has already begun. We are not facing a disruptive revolution as expected, but a gradual transition to new industrial processes and collaborative modes. 

The trend is discrete yet deep. The digitalization of manufacturing tools is under way, accompanied by experts that are particularly agile and dynamic. Those experts are key in the hiring and retention plans. The industry of the future is taking shape, but not as we predicted.

Industrial companies are constantly improving their processes. They are starting to reap the benefits from digital transformation: efficiency, work time, security… this raising awareness pushes traditional businesses to reinforce themselves by internally relying on new competencies.

On what “soft skills*” will Executives need to rely on in order to maintain their employability?

Interview with Jean-Pierre Scandella, Managing Partner at ARROWMAN Executive Search

Interview by Olivier Durand

Jobs of the future do not exist yet, 50% of them will be transformed within 10 years, 10 to 20% will be created and, and the same amount will probably disappear.

On what “soft skills*” will Executives need to rely on in order to maintain their employability?

“We are currently experiencing a job revolution. Even though no one can distinctly predict the future, certain strong tendencies are observed in terms of competences to acquire and know-how to adopt. Global transformation, the multiplication of information flows and the simultaneous management of a multitude of projects, are factors that oblige Managers to have a critical mindset, making them break with their traditions and putting them in a position to advance and discriminate with refined judgement in order to deal with current events and not against them. Furthermore, the economic conditions now impose the need for new growth levers (in every sector: industry, luxury, distribution…), forcing everyone to work in a transversal and collaborative way; working in multidisciplinary teams is the leitmotiv. Finally, Managers must be creative and innovative, because it is possible to do more with less, companies now ask us to find “intra preneurs”. We can now say that creativity outweighs technical competences.”
