Automotive & Mobility

OVER
VIEW

Autonomous vehicles, Electric cars, Connected vehicles and Shared mobility. Today's automotive leadership around the world has begun to gear up their organizations for these game-changing trends. From manufacturing to supply chain management, new technologies to innovations, these mega trends are creating new opportunities that organizations want to tap into; in order to stay in the fast lane. These trends are motivating the top leadership and board to re-design organizational structures including compensation; in order to align them to the demands of a new automotive landscape.

Automotive leadership has to strategize to integrate these trends with traditional manufacturing; while ensuring a minimum of disruption, and create sustainable value for a wide stakeholder base. The industry, therefore, requires leadership that is conversant with new technologies (electric and shared mobility), supplier systems and new regulations that will determine not only competitive strengths but also consumer (drivers and passengers) issues in safety, shared mobility and ownership. One study suggests that new business models being forged could actually expand revenue pools by about 30 percent. To tap into these opportunities requires visionary leadership.

Governments worldwide are influencing policy frameworks for electric and shared mobility. This requires auto leadership to network with government authorities providing insights in areas such as public mobility. The automotive eco-system is in a transformative phase. It needs a new kind of leadership to take the wheel and which can strategize for growth, innovation and long term vision.
