Industry 4.0 is not only a bundle of linked innovations, but a wide-ranging revolution that also affects the organizational aspects of the company and its value chain. This work focuses on the relationship between the tacit knowledge inherent in human resources and the codified knowledge built within the machinery and the whole production process 4.0. Human resources have returned to the center of the production process. Companies face a trade-off between the need to invest more and more resources towards internal training and the increased need to "retain" their employees. The Corporate Academy can be an interesting tool to achieve these two goals simultaneously. This work analyzes and compares 29 Italian Corporate Academies in the manufacturing sector based on a research and survey Nomisma. The study helped to understand the motivations that led these companies to adopt this tool, in addition to understand the different methods that they undertook in the process and the relative actual and expected benefits.
