Industry Operations Leadership Fundamentals

The Industry Operations Leadership Fundamentals Course provides a very detail introduction of what is Industry 4.0 which is unclear for many of us.It also introduces the Strong Link Archetype which provides a very specific and practical model of leadership intended to learn and develop tools, techniques and leadership styles for the Industry 4.0 environment combined with specific methodologies or techniques to enable leaders with powerful tools for project and resources management.


The Professors and Guest Speakers have a great balance between academical and practical experience, providing useful and practical tools and techniques to transfer the acquired knowledge into immediate action. In my particular case as a Plant Manager at Tesla, understanding the Industry 4.0 environment, and the upcoming trends and technologies in manufacturing, is providing me with a different perspective to better understand the challenges that my team and I are and will be facing in the following years and as well to better lead and manage the new generations that are developing in this fast changing and technologically advanced environment.

Industry Operations Leadership Fundamentals

The MacMaster IOLF had a great selection of very knowledgeable presenters from a variety of fields who were able to discuss the impacts of key theories in practice based on their experience. I was particularly impressed with the consideration McMaster had in bringing in a speaker to address mental health within the context of managing. It is a topic often cited as important, but rarely are managers provided tools to deal address it.
