Description

Under the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it is important that organizations recruit and retain managers with skills that allow them to focus on meeting strategic objectives. To achieve this, companies must focus on implementing strategic management that allows managers to manage and lead continuous change, creativity, innovation, learning, productivity, speed, and effectiveness of their activities that turn them into constant value generators. Managers must also possess personal competences such as initiative, resilience, assumption of risk, creativity, networking, empathy, negotiation, self-control, self-knowledge, and the ability to turn difficulties into opportunities. These capabilities are important in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution because they will allow organizations to cope with the highly changing environment that will enable them to consolidate their growth and profitability.
