The Next Economy:Learn how to harness technological disruption to create strategic and competitive advantage


Publishing Date: 9/5/2018 11:00 AM

​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.

BY THE END OF THE MASTERCLASS, PARTICIPANTS WILL:

  • Have a sound understanding of concepts central to the process of technological innovation. 
  • Receive the most up to date information on the current state of technological change in multiple industries. 
  • Have access to new tools to harness 21st century working practices for innovation, change management and disruption.
