Venue: Monarch Ballroom 3

Building the Data-first Culture for Transformation

As organizations embark on massive changes, getting better data is key to eliminating the unknowns of digital transformation. But, what does it take to develop an agile data-first culture to support the change?

Breakout 2 - AI Powered Core

Venue: Monarch Ballroom 2

Letting AI Expand your Powers of Prediction

Enterprises, for some time now, have been leveraging AI to handle traditional prediction problems such as inventory management and customer churn. Now, they are starting to use these prediction to solve problems that we haven’t historically thought of as prediction problems. Let’s ask them how.

Breakout 3 - Always on Learning

Venue: Monarch Ballroom 3

Design Thinking - Why Fast Beats Perfect

Gaining sufficient change velocity requires dramatically speeding up work metabolism. Waiting for enough analysis or the perfect product only gives legacy processes more opportunities to kick in and take over. The minimum viable product (MVP) approach allows for accelerated market entry of innovations while preventing expensive and protracted product development. Ask these design thinkers for whom this is business as usual.

You Can’t Do This Alone

There was clear recognition today that few of us can do it alone. Partnerships have become commonplace : Toyota collaborates with Amazon’s Alexa. Amazon’s Alexa partners with electric vehicle company Byton, Panasonic and consumer electronics manufacturer Anker. More of these ecosystems are being created, and more leaders are gaining from innovation and idea partnerships. Ask the panelists how it has worked for them.

Reskilling at Scale

Traditional methods of training don't always work to prepare people for a future where they work with machines. And in-person methods don’t deliver the scale that’s required for these times. Finally, traditional methods don’t enable businesses to personalize their training to account for a person’s current and target capabilities, nor do they deliver that training on-demand and as needed. So how do the winners do it all?
