Deep Dive: Managing through Disruption

Some suggest we are well into a fourth industrial revolution — a time of significant and fundamental shifts in the ways we create, manufacture, and consume goods and services. Serious questions abound regarding the degree to which artificial intelligence, automation, and online economies will level considerable and long-term dislocations to the global economy. Given the pace of technological adoption and change, are these shifts a threat to employment in the short term? Will companies be able to retrain workers, or find new ones, for the work ahead? How do we manage our organizations in times of potentially radical changes in the ways we work? Is the prospect of a jobless future real? This deep dive will explore the minds of economists, C-suite executives, and futurists in ways that will raise many questions, offer new insights, and leave you with a lot to think about.
