Industry Challenges

The industry is looking to embrace the digital revolution and whilst technology offers part of the solution, the workforce has a key role to play in moving from digital concept to production. Companies need to develop new ways of marrying together humans’ ideas and technology to achieve their ambitions.

The Aerospace and Defence sector is looking to innovate, with the increased demand for sophisticated products and services if it is to keep up with end-user expectations on affordability and sustainability.

There is a global talent shortage across the industry, with an emphasis on engineering talent. Whilst much is being done to promote STEM subjects in schools and firms are partnering with universities, there are still several challenges.

Executives across the Aerospace and Defence sector need to drive transformation via:

  • Leadership empowerment
  • Re-skill and succession plan for the future business needs
  • Create an operating structure that leads to continuous innovation and collaboration
  • Increase digital capability
  • Look at future talent strategy and plan rather than react
