 In his role Kirchner sees many Wisconsin   employers taking the lead on Industry 4.0, using it   to drive cost out of production, eliminate   workplace  accidents and improve customer   experience.

With an insider's view into education innovation, Kirchner believes Wisconsin's educators are better than those in any other state at equipping the Industry 4.0 workforce of the future. He also knows first-hand how employers can access this new wave of talent.
