Customer: Zeiss

Topic: Leadership Training

Language: English

Industry: optical and optoelectronic industry

Goal: ZEISS wanted to train its global executives to become “Digital Leaders” to boost digitalization in their respective business areas.

Implementation: In this 12-week program, 21 hours of learning content were covered efficiently and flexibly. By establishing “Digital Labs”, it was possible to apply what had been learned in a practical way and to relate it to the company. Furthermore, the program included numerous live events in which developed topics were discussed with experts and colleagues and addressed in more detail.

Result:
  • ZEISS established the “Digital Transformation at ZEISS” program together with University4Industry, starting with the global management level at the end of 2020.
  • Since then, three roll-out phases have already taken place to offer the training program to all employees in management positions.
  • Overall, around 2,300 people from a wide range of countries, including China and the USA, have been certified.

The collaboration with University4Industry was a huge success and their ability to understand and customize their learning content to address our unique needs were a key factor to this success. We have achieved a very high participation rate and favorable Net Promotor score, and the program assisted in developing a global network of multipliers that have acquired the confidence and skills to address the ever-changing digital environment.

The Digital Curriculum is the largest and most extensive training project that Pepperl + Fuchs has ever carried out. The concept of this e-learning platform was individually tailored to Pepperl + Fuchs. This has led to the fact that we have been able to sensitize and even inspire our employees worldwide for the topic of ‘digital transformation’ - an enormous benefit for us as a driver of industry 4.0 solutions. Our employees now act as multipliers for one of our central focus topics, and we also live digitalization in the company itself.​

We at IXON are active within IIoT, where IT meets OT. Exactly in this field of IIoT, U4I provides a great overview of relevant upcoming technologies. This enables our technology experts and sales representatives to align on a future perspective in the industry. Thus, we can provide great value to our customers by having a broad understanding of the digital transformation in mechanical engineering - as guiding the machine builder through that transformation is one of IXON's core objectives. What is exceptionally great about the content provided by U4I is the combination of theoretical knowledge from industry experts and practical examples.
