Industry Transformation: Orchestrating Technology and Organisational Change

Every sector today is being disrupted by a combination of forces including rapid digitalisation, macro-economic instabilities and workplace disruptions. To manage and lead amidst this perfect storm, it will take a combination of efforts from incumbents, startups, innovation, institutional capital, public opinion, and individual behaviour. Incumbents can bring their resources and customer base, while startups offer disruptive ideas and agility. Focusing on the energy sector, this session will explore particularly ways to leverage the interplay of incumbent industry leaders and disruptive start-ups for industry transformation.

The Future of Work in a Technology-Driven, Hybrid Workforce

The future of work will be characterised by new, emerging forms of interfaces and co-creation between humans and technology. As the digitalisation of systems, productivity tools, robotics and Artificial Intelligence is fast advancing, employees and employers are challenged to develop new and constantly evolving skills. As ChatGPT has demonstrated, this not only concerns "blue-collar work" in increasingly automated factories, but equally "white-collar work" of content and knowledge production. What are the potentials and ethical dilemmas stemming from the rapid adoption of emerging technologies at work, and how should we address them?
