Miami Beach, FL, October 04, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The Guild is supporting a new open-source model, the Talent Transformation Pyramid, that has been specifically designed to deal with the complexities of new work environments. The model was developed by co-founder Eric Shepherd based after months of research and interviews with numerous leaders and executives. The research revealed that the current models for managing and developing workforce talent were out-dated and inadequate to deal with Industry 4.0 requirements. The model provides a vocabulary, framework, and description of factors that support performance, readiness, behaviors, and capabilities.
“Automation will have profound impact on how we work together to achieve results. Just as with other revolutions, the fourth industrial revolution, will change the way that we work, live, and play. As tasks are replaced by automation new tasks will appear and new skills will need to be developed. Sharing a common vocabulary and framework will help us have meaningful discussions to develop workforce talent, teams and organizations,” Co-founder Eric Shepherd explained. “This new era both requires and enables us to create better ways to develop our own talents and to work with others. And it requires that we shake off traditional and linear thinking to embrace new skills and new ways of working.”
The Guild, supported by the Talent Transformation Pyramid, will help leaders and executives address these new challenges by promoting more strategic thinking and focus on an organization's readiness to perform.

About Industry 4.0
According to the World Economic Forum, new and emerging technologies are affecting our lives in ways that indicate we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0). This new era will build and extend the impact of digitization in new and unimaginable ways. The Fourth Industrial Revolution can be described as the advent of “cyber-physical systems” involving new capabilities for people and machines. This will see new ways for technology to become embedded within societies and even our bodies.
With process automation, robotic automation, the internet of things the nature of work will change. Some analysts predict that more than 40% of tasks currently performed by humans will be delegated to machines. This does not mean that 40% of people will be put out of work but it does mean that most workers will have to reskill and upskill. HR experts are predicting this will dramatically change the landscape of our workforce.
