6,522 views

Published on

Disruptive technologies from additive manufacturing to artificial intelligence are transforming global production systems and unleashing a new wave of competition among both producers and countries. They impact and alter all end-to-end steps of the production process and, as a result, transform the products that consumers demand, factory processes and footprints, and the management of global supply chains, in addition to industry dynamics and countries’ access to value chains.

As knowledge partner on the important yearlong World Economic Forum initiative Shaping the Future of Production, A.T. Kearney is at the forefront of this transformation—helping a global team of government and business leaders understand, prepare for, and take advantage of the changes. Drawing upon our deep expertise in manufacturing consulting, we aim to prepare companies and countries to accelerate value creation and come out on top.
