The technological revolution and ongoing digitization are constantly changing the world of

work, driven by the covid pandemic. Traditional ways of working are reaching their limits, with

the actual meaning of New Work often remaining vague. Increasingly, companies are being

raises the question: How can the manufacturing industry organizationally anchor New Work

approaches?
