BCG’s Vlad Lukic and Multiverse’s Sophie Ruddock discuss considerations regarding jobs, hard skills, durable skills, reskilling, and “T-shaped individuals.”
Companies that both prioritize innovation and make sure that they are ready to act are widening the gap over less capable competitors.
When applications in the pipeline target superusers, BCG's Vlad Lukic says, magical things will emerge.
Data champions have outperformed laggard peers across major indicators such as revenue growth, sustainability, lead times, and employee attrition—a performance gap that is expected to widen.

When large companies overinvest in digital capabilities, they dramatically widen the value gap with their more cautious peers, generating an average of 30% more EBIT over three years. What are these outperformers doing right?
Many steel manufacturers haven’t yet embraced AI, but that doesn’t mean they can’t. All that’s required is an openness to experimentation and a willingness to change.

The value of IoT data is hidden in plain sight. Using AR realizes its potential, as our app demonstrates. It’s critical that companies develop a joint IoT-AR strategy.
Whether they generate it themselves or acquire it from external sources, the amount of data available to companies today is increasing exponentially. And companies that choose not to use that data to create value risk hastening their own obsolescence or, at the very least, losing competitive advantage.
