Siemens’ Alexander Thielmann, Senior Vice President at Siemens discusses the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its effect on the corporate landscape.

The transformation Siemens has embarked on, aptly named Vision 2020 Plus, is a cultural one as much as it is a technology one. With a company as large as Siemens, Thielmann describes this sea change as navigating a fleet of ships.


“With this new change of these fleet of ships, the expectation of the board is also that the ships, or the companies, make more profit... Which also means now they are looking a bit more outside the box.”
