Digitalization is fast-becoming the new normal in how companies are engaging with their customers. It is now what we do. But has it fully made its way into how we think, how we learn and how we lead? During this intensive one-day session we will help you to bridge this gap in a very hands-on way. We will share highlights on what leading companies around the world are doing right now to build the mindsets, skills and behaviors to lead proactively in the digital economy. You’ll receive an update on a major global research project on the future of leadership in the digital economy, as well as engage with senior HR executives from J.P. Morgan Chase and other leading companies on how they are digitizing their learning and development efforts. You will also get an insider’s view into a J.P. Morgan Chase initiative on design thinking and innovative product design through their partner: Decoded. You will not be an audience member during this session - you will test out these tools in real time and see how they can apply to your company!
- Professor Doug Ready and executives from Cognizant will share highlights from a major global research project Professor Ready is leading at MIT Sloan in partnership with Cognizant: The Future of Leadership in the Digital Economy. Doug will share some of the early stage outcomes from the global survey as well as the reflections of C-Suite leaders on what it takes to lead in this new world of work.
- Inger Buus, Head of Leadership Development will lead this interactive session on understanding the power of digitalization in not only how innovation is taking place today, but how this powerful technology is transforming how we work, how we learn and how we lead. Participants will actively engage with the JPMorgan Chase team to see how they can transform their own L&D initiatives by getting a look into J.P. Morgan Chase’s digitalization initiative with their partner Decoded.
