DESCRIPTION:

By the end of the next decade, intelligent machines and systems will enter the workforce at an unprecedented rate. Research organizations estimate that over the next two decades, between 30% and up to 60% of current jobs will be partially or fully automated. Artificially intelligence will be responsible for everyday business transactions and decisions. Human-like robots will be answering all our questions using natural language, while autonomous vehicles will be driving themselves around the world and redefining industries beyond transportation.

Welcome to the age of artificial intelligence and digital employees. The expertise and competencies that made you and your company successful, and relevant in the 20th century might not be required in the future. The need for digital evolution is no longer an option, but an imperative for survival. Businesses and individuals must learn to adapt their leadership capabilities and organizational design strategies, as much as they need to evolve and improve technology competency. Important questions need to be asked and the journey of finding answers might change the way we design ourselves and businesses in the future.

This session has been planned to provide a framework to help us prepare answering these questions:

  • Is my company prepared to adopt and thrive in the era of synthetic intelligence?
  • Am I prepared for a journey of continuous learning and digital evolution?
  • Is my job part of history or the future?
  • What is the workforce of the future?

Disruption is the new normal and change is affecting businesses, jobs and people across all industries. More than ever it is crucial to mobilize ourselves and our organizations to take advantage of the digital revolution with the skills to lead the way and seize opportunities.
