Welcome to Pathfinder i4.0.

Dear employees,

The Pathfinder i4.0 is an anonymous online survey. The aim is to find out how the digital status quo is assessed by you, i.e. by all employees of all departments. It takes about 15 minutes to complete the Pathfinder i4.0.

The Pathfinder contains 23 questions, which are divided into four areas:

• Management and Leadership (Questions 1.1 to 1.5)
• Organisation and Human Ressources (Questions 2.1 to 2.6)
• Technology and Infrastructure (Questions 3.1 to 3.7)
• Market (Questions 4.1 to 4.5)

With a simple click you select the desired answer option. For each question, you can also show additional information. Simply click on the following button and the topic of each question is explained in more detail:

You can also leave a note for each question (for example, a specific example). In the annotations field you can (but do not have to) enter a free text:

At the end of the 23 questions we ask you to select your area of influence.

We hope you enjoy the Pathfinder i4.0 and look forward to your results.
