We have just witnessed what is called as the fourth industrial revolution: the evolution of the knowledge economy. It has brought massive changes to the business landscape.
Companies like Microsoft, Tesla, Apple, and Amazon lead the corporate sector today, replacing Ford, General Motors, General Electric, and Exxon-Mobil. These new companies operate with different paradigms than the ones that governed manufacturing and infrastructure intensive companies. Even among the surviving giants, such as General Motors, new technologies, artificial intelligence, decision systems, and robotics are replacing the role of middle management and skilled labour. With each passing day, technology is becoming central to the world of business and changing the role of management regardless of the industry.
As a skilled worker, do you feel prepared to stay relevant in a workplace where the use of technology is accelerating? Do you understand how to embrace technology in order to advance your career? Do you possess the ability to pivot in a workplace where A.I. and software are increasingly replacing middle management? Do you feel like jumping the bandwagon and joining a technology start up?
To address the importance of technology in business and how this will impact the workforce, we are honored to welcome as our Keynote Speaker:
Dr. Anup Srivastava, Ph.D., MBA, BTech
Canada Research Chair at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary.
A leading researcher on the changing economics of listed companies and an expert on valuation and financial reporting of knowledge companies.
