The Digital OneOffice: Getting Ahead of Today's Disruption
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

We are now making that final shift from the traditional global sourcing model to intelligent operations. In a few months, we won’t be talking nearly as much about automation and digital technology as the critical value levers - they are becoming  embedded into the fabric of the future operations platform for new generation organizations. Instead, we will be talking a lot more about the Digital OneOffice, where the organization's people, intelligence, processes, and infrastructure come together as one integrated unit, with one set of unified business outcomes tied to exceeding customer expectations.

Those who own the data will win, everyone else will pay for access
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

One of the key drivers for digital transformation in organizations, whether they are commercial, non-profit or government is the desire to capture, access and analyze data they previously couldn’t access. As physical assets become digital ones, they create vast amounts of data that didn’t previously exist. This, coupled with a need to build a truly unified customer view supports our belief that in the future, those who own the data will win, everyone else will pay for access. In this presentation Nick will describe the drivers of this phenomenon, the pitfalls and dilemmas it throws and give example of organizations that have succeeded in taking ownership of data, transforming themselves in the process.

Simplifying to Amplify in a Disruptive Economy: A Leader’s Perspective

Complexity and uncertainty – often the duo go hand in hand stoking each other in process, and overwhelming business leaders by turns. Uncertainty, in the aftermath of rapid (uncomfortable?) technological changes can be compelling. In an attempt to tame it, leaders can end up with increased complexity to move further away from what they sought to achieve – congruous adaption. Here, the moot point is getting the degree right. Since, learning and adaption will have to happen in parallel, and without the comfort of a time lag, this is critical. This session will feature successful leaders as they deliberate unequivocally on challenges which are layered, and script the way forward in these disruptive times.

Global workplaces are getting redefined that how work gets done by introducing the idea of a “Digital workforce” platform and digital workers that work alongside human employees. This combination is designed to help the human employee accomplish more than they ever could alone. The Digital workforce platform is the combination of RPA, cognitive and analytics together.

Introducing mundane and complex tasks to the digital workforce allows the human employees to think, create, discover, and innovate; basically doing things that humans do best. The man and machine partnership isn’t new, and has allowed the world to advance in countless ways.

Future of Work - Implications on leadership

Where you work, what you work on, how you work, when you work and even why you work, has changed. Add artificial intelligence, automation, and macros economic conditions and the future of work is being turned upside down. This macro pressure at the global scale impacts the business world from many fronts. In fact, the digital disruption that organizations face from non-traditional competitors, emerging technologies, and new disruptive business models, requires a different type of leadership to manage the pace of change required not only for survival, but also for cultural agility.  Past models of leadership play a key role, yet the continual over and under emphasis of one type of leadership design and style no longer is relevant for the challenges ahead.

Technology By People, For People

It’s an exciting, unprecedented time in technology. Advances in technology are poised to transform the way we work and live, and raise many questions about the opportunities, as well as very serious challenges we must address.  The impact of technology innovations can be positive, because the power lies with us - with people.  The fundamental shift is that we are no longer wondering what the newest innovation means for business or for people.  We are in control – we’re adapting technology TO us, not adapting to it.  WE are designing the future using technology to fit our needs.  Technology is now being designed by people, for people.  In an engaging session guaranteed to push the boundaries of your thinking, Justin Baird will take us fast forward into the future. Justin will share with us his experience working with emerging technologies and provide insight into how “New IT” is transforming the world as we know it, with practical examples of the great work already being performed today.

Chai on the “Cloud”: Balancing daily rituals with technology-induced change

Our lives our governed by daily rituals. We are all creatures of habit. One of the central tasks for an entrepreneur is to think of ways in which new technologies can preserve the comforting aspect of rituals but make them more efficient and accessible.  This is a tricky balance.  I will illustrate this with two examples in entrepreneurial settings, how my students and I have worked to marry technology with habits – first, bringing a steaming cup of ‘chai’, whether at work or at home, to you, and second, marrying technology with the daily clinical needs of those who suffer from the chronic disease epidemic hitting countries like India (diabetes, cardiac disease).

Preparing for Skills 4.0 – Is your job at Risk?
With the unprecedented economic developments and the dramatic changes rattling through many industries, companies and employees need to make sure they are ready to embrace the disruptions and fend off potential skills gaps and talent shortages. In the modern workplace, digital skills are highly valued; in the future, digital skills will be vital. The digital age is expanding into all areas of our lives, and it is not just those who work in IT that will need to be alert of this change. However, it is not simply the development of old jobs that make digital skills so important in the modern workplace, but the creation of entirely new jobs. There is a genuine fear of a digital skills gap created by the boom in the digital economy versus the amount of people who are trained to work in it. While automation and robots seem to present a bleak future for human employment, companies need to realize that it will be humans who will be guiding the robots to do the work, and hence it not the question of jobs, but skilled jobs. So, are you ready?
