I met Chris Clott at the Opening Oceans Conference in Copenhagen early May and since he has a much experience from the maritime industry after having worked for liner companies, specialised in business strategy and also is one of the co-founders of the Maritime Global Innovation Centre, he gives a crash-course on where the maritime industry is right now when it comes to Industry Revolution 4.0.
With the goal to influence & drive change, Chris sees the necessity of collaboration and he would very much like to have that once he has figured out HOW it’s going to be done and then identified WHO can make it occur? If you want to reach out to Chris, he is @CCMaritime on Twitter.
Chris thinks that Scandinavia is ahead of the US when it comes to digital transformation but he can see the entire spectra in a true transformation when looking on a global scale. There are the Prospectors, where he counts Scandinavia, the Analysts, the Defenders and the total Reactors. They are all there and even though it’s most fun to look at the two first groups, the total reactors, they will probably not be here in a short number of times, things are changing, like it or not.
What is your view on what Chris is talking about? Where are you in this development? Can you list some of the true prospectors?
I would like to hear from you. I am @lenagothberg everywhere in social media, and you can comment below on the website if you are not into social media.
