This week on the podcast, (@AugmentedPod) we have Marty Guay, Vice President of Business Development at Stanley Black & Decker (@StanleyBlkDeckr). In this conversation, futurist Trond Undheim (@trondau) and Marty talk about the Connecticut state initiative designed to enable technology adoption and workforce creation. This is Episode #82 of Season 2 and the topic is Innovation Corridor in Connecticut.
Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim, and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.
Trond's takeaway: It has long been the thinking that government-sponsored workforce development is the only way to stimulate, learning, and training at scale. However, that may in fact not be the case and may at times have the adverse consequence that businesses don't invest themselves. But focused funding and initiatives do help and the CT innovation corridor seems well thought out and will presumably revitalize an important area around Hartford, which is much needed.
