  • The digital age is much more than the industrial era amped up on tech-steroids. It is in many respects humankind’s return to its true nature. Smart organisations are harnessing our true nature to create value. Such organisations create the conditions to unleash our true potential, but this requires a fundamentally different approach to talent management. In this session, you will learn how the nature of talent management, leadership and business models are changing to accommodate what might be called talent 4.0. We will explore the human augmentation journey to date and how technology can be applied to turbo-charge our natural capabilities.

  • Across the world, senior managers and team leaders are increasingly frustrated by conflicts arising from what we refer to as multiteaming—having their people assigned to multiple projects simultaneously. But given the significant benefits of multiteaming, it has become a way of organizational life, particularly in knowledge work. It allows groups to share individuals’ time and brainpower across functional and departmental lines, and it increases efficiency as well. Multiteaming also provides important pathways for knowledge transfer and the dissemination of best practices throughout organizations. While the advantages of multiteaming are clear and quantifiable, its costs are substantial and need to be managed – from overlapping teams of independent projects to weakened group cohesion, identity, and trust due to fluctuation of team members, not to mention the stress, fatigue, and burnout experienced by individual employees. All around, it’s a significant investment of time and effort. But organizations pay a much higher price when they neglect the costs of multiteaming in hot pursuit of its benefits. In this masterclass, Mark will discuss why multiteaming is so prevalent in today’s economy, examine the key problems that crop up for organizational and team leaders, and provide recommendations for how to solve them based on his research spanning 15 years.

  • We live in a world of digital disruption, where established firms need to rethink both how they compete and how they are organised. In this talk, Professor Birkinshaw will describe the new models of organising that are taking shape today, and how these are helping firms deliver on the imperatives for decisive action and emotional conviction. He will also talk about the leadership qualities that are needed as digital technology, and AI in particular, makes many of the traditional parts of the leader’s job obsolete.

  • Automation, the gig economy, digital platforms, and other innovations are changing the fundamental nature of work and are having a significant impact on the workforce, workplace and the HR function. A comprehensive Digital HR Strategy is crucial for all HR practitioners and leaders wanting to ensure that their organization adapts to this changing and increasingly competitive environment, as creating a strategic approach for sustainable transformation goes well beyond conventional Digital HR propositions. The Digital HR Strategy should be broader when considering the transformation journey in the digital age, and in attaining the right level of sustainability.

  • “We have always done it this way.” “It’s too risky.” There are many reasons for an organization not to change and fall prey to its own inertia. Your experience may even validate that only 30% of transformations succeed. At Novartis we knew unleashing the power of our people was critical to future success. Before asking our employees to embrace change, we decided to embrace change first and rethink our approach based on current research in behavioural science, a design thinking approach, and generally a less hierarchical take on leadership.
