The Industrial Renaissance: Retool, repurpose, reinvent

Industrial Companies have operated in a challenging business environment, with decreasing growth perspectives, high cost pressure and political uncertainty in their main markets globally, even before COVID-19. The pandemic has added yet another vast layer of complexity to an already challenging environment. In this continuously evolving and unstable environment, industrial companies need to retool, repurpose and reinvent to shape their revival.

Despite its significant effects, the pandemic has accelerated the need to act. It has forced industrial companies to transform and usher in the industrial renaissance. Four key factors will distinguish between mere survival or revival for the industrial players: 1) growth focused on a shift from product to services and omnichannel go to market; 2) a reinvented portfolio that includes smart connected products and services; 3) an agile workforce and a new industrial culture; and 4) a sustained adoption of technology to create a digitally decoupled infrastructure.

Accenture’s global survey reveals that Industrial companies know they need to transform their services business, but many struggle to find the right path.
