Abstract

As a PM, it’s not sufficient to be aware of new technology trends, you need to learn how to lead the change so that your organization can embrace the future and not get left behind!

In this session, keynoter and futurist Christina “CK” Kerley will showcase the tech trends that are disrupting and dominating the 21st Century business landscape.

Yesterday was about billions of smartphones—but tomorrow belongs to trillions of smart things digitizing our physical world. The AI Arms Race is officially on, and companies must turn into “real-time, know-it-all enterprises” to keep a competitive edge. Digital transformation is our destination . . . and blockchains may be key in getting us there.

As headlines of job-killing robots abound, the real story escapes our view: Automation’s not taking our jobs away, it's giving us back our time. Freed from administrative tasks, “CoBots” will let executives focus on creating new forms of value. And as this era of record-setting advancements unfolds, the most critical success factor won’t be technological: it will be uniquely human. A Reskilling Revolution—unrivaled in size, scope, and scale—is just around the corner.
