Shifting gears for growth

Sparked by new technologies and changing customer behavior, we’re entering an industrial renaissance. As we look to the global post-pandemic recovery and beyond, a series of technological, macroeconomic, societal, and B2B customer trends are both accelerating and converging to create new challenges and opportunities—on an exponentially bigger scale.

Industrial companies cannot simply focus on a return to the pre-pandemic normal. The scale of the ambition needs to be much higher—shifting gears to enter a new phase of accelerated growth.
