Abstract

Industry 4.0 demands specific skills and talent. In some countries, human resources are failing to meet these demands. Workers must be smarter and more skilled to excel in this new technology-driven environment. More education and training—beyond academic settings—are needed to address this skills gap. Developing these skills will be a cost, but it should be considered part of quality conformance. The authors offer advice to help students become highly skilled and transform into valuable human resources beyond their academic achievements.
