Australian manufacturing is evolving. Shifts include a move from manufacturing high volume and low value goods to high tech and high quality goods. This means companies suddenly need to meet substantial investment demands in research and development, or need to up-skill their workforce. In some areas there is a strong tendency towards automation to save costs and margins. This has a dramatic impact on labour costs.

Consulting and turnkey delivery firms are trying to diversify their operations in an attempt to mitigate the risk of industry fluctuations. How well is your company managing, and how prepared is it to continue to adapt in the future?
