Tulip CEO Natan Linder to Discuss Future of Manufacturing and Frontline Operations at Davos 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated known challenges – workforce turnover, supply chain resiliency, and changing consumer demands, leading to an increased urgency in digital transformation projects.

DAVOS, Switzerland - May 18 2022// Next week, Tulip Co-Founder and CEO Dr. Natan Linder will represent Tulip Interfaces at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting. Linder will join world leaders in industry, government, academia, and civil society in discussions of substantive issues that affect the future of manufacturing.

Over the past two years, the pandemic and other changes impacting the global supply chain and labor market have accelerated many of the areas Linder has been urging companies to focus on further. Directing leadership toward upskilling and educating frontline workers and developing global, scalable solutions with low barriers to entry so that companies of all sizes can access the benefits of digital transformation with the internal teams that know their operations best is an area of focus at the upcoming conference.

This year, Linder will be participating in multiple sessions, concerning topics as diverse as the World Economic Forum’s Lighthouse Factories, how global real-time data sharing will transform manufacturing, and how to make sure the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings along their frontline workers. The WEF will feature Tulip's global operations map online to showcase the breadth of manufacturing operations around the world, highlighting more than a billion tracked processes this year from the shop floor to empower decision-making. The company has also partnered with organizations such as Outset Medical and Stanley Black & Decker, to bring augmented lean management principles into their operations and upskill their operators through digitization.

On his and Tulip’s collaboration with WEF, Linder remarked, “People always have been and will increasingly be the best resource a company has. Tulip shares the WEF and its ecosystem of member organizations’ commitment to augmenting and upskilling the frontline workforce, and building more resilient operations that are grounded by human-centric programs. There’s a lot to learn from each other, and this ecosystem has an opportunity to change the next generation of manufacturing.”
