A generational change is happening in the workplace. There are enormous pressures to transform everything from work environments to business models to complete cultures. Workers are more nomadic, organisations and their challenges are more complex and new technologies are helping push past the limits of what’s possible.
To stay ahead of these trends we need to understand how technology is disrupting businesses now and how it will in the future.
In this webinar Ryan Asdourian, Microsoft’s Windows and Surface BG Lead, will explore how technology is disrupting industries, and how it can be harnessed to promote collaboration and boost productivity.
Businesses are built on ideas, innovation, and creativity – real transformation will come 90% from people and only 10% technology. We will continue to explore these themes with Microsoft at the Shaping a Digital World conference; collaboration (session 1 of the behavioural stream) is at the heart of the new/future workplace and workforce mind-set. In the manufacturing industry (session 2 of the productivity stream) we will look at how technology is an enabler to increased productivity. Legislation around data governance and security are also essential to creating a future proof workforce, (session 1 of the resilience stream).
