It is important not to overlook the near-term impacts of Digital Transformation and the skilled labor shortage it is creating. Automation does not represent the replacement of a skilled labor workforce, but instead, the transformation of that workforce towards higher-level and more creative work, as more remedial tasks are removed from their plates. This transformation can’t simply happen through the purchase of new technology. It must happen over time and as part of the automation journey. The three main characters in that journey – people, process, and technology – must all be transformed along the way.
The Autonomous Framework and this white paper intend to bring a greater degree of order and structure to the autonomous journey. It is our sincere hope that you have found some value in them.
