Future Fit Leadership in Technology Transformation

Abstract: The world is increasingly subject to significant change driven in part by the potential implications of exponential technology developments like artificial intelligence, robotics, adaptive manufacturing, augmented and virtual reality.

In the past, we have been confident in our predictions about how the external environment is evolving and been able to come to consensus about the way ahead. Increasingly we are far from certain about how the outside world is evolving and are less able to reach consensus about how to proceed.

In this session, futurist Steve Wells will explore the factors driving future change, drill down into the technological landscape, and explore how mindset shift and leadership are crucial in helping us explore, make sense of, and thrive in an uncertain future characterised by exponential change and unexpected disruption
