Industrial Revolution 4.0 is a new paradigm in manufacturing that uses digital technology which has many advantages. Bureaucrats in the public sector are implementers of all public policies that continue to increase. There is a negative stigma that bureaucracy is rigid, slow, and inefficient. Therefore, in the face of the 4.0 Industrial Revolution, bureaucratic reform is necessary. E-government can provide many benefits, more practical work processes, and more productive results for the bureaucracy. With e-government, it is hoped that the performance of the state civil apparatus (ASN) as a public servant can be further improved. This empowerment is important so that ASN has the competence in accordance with the needs of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 which also eliminates bureaucratic pathology. In both the global era and the Industrial Revolution 4.0, demands that modern public sector managers have to deal with a rapidly changing world. Noninnovative leaders have failed to implement many public policy programs Innovative leader is a keyword in the global era that is used for various sectors and activities. However, the Industrial Revolution 4.0 is a formidable challenge for bureaucracy and bureaucrats in implementing its policies and producing quality public services.
