Technology, which used to be thought of as a
function to be outsourced, or a sector on its own,
is now a strategic layer across all aspects of an
organisation. Understanding what’s over the horizon is
essential for any organisation wishing to harness the
opportunities of a rapidly changing global economy
in the 21st century. This one day masterclass will
equip participants with the ability to think clearly
and critically about the way technological disruption
is changing the economy, a skill that’s particularly
relevant for leaders who wish to maintain a strategic
advantage — and protect their organisations against
competitors looking to do the same.
