Abstract:One of the latest changes in the industry is the fourth industrial revolution. There is still a lot of unclearness surrounding this new change. One research area that has not yet been thoroughly research is the transferring of the industry to an ‘Industry 4.0’ environment. This research is focused on finding out how organisations that are transferring to an ‘Industry 4.0’ environment establish team effectiveness. Currently, there is not yet much information about collaborations in the ‘Industry 4.0’ environment. Therefore, the widely accepted IMOI model is used to explain what teams often need for team effectiveness. This IMOI model is the input for the first semi-structure interview round. The second round of semi-structured interviews is conducted to acquire more information on unclarities and interesting points. Four important findings have been found by this research. The case-organisation is perceived to have an hierarchy, goals, expectations and focus of different stakeholders do not align and team members often feel that there is a lack in resources. The outcome of this research is a clear overview of pain points in team collaborations and extensive knowledge on good team leaders and team members.
