The impact of digital technology on businesses around the world is only starting to be seen and better understood. Key technology areas such as digitization, analytics, networks, and the internet of things are advancing swiftly and are integral to future economic growth. Humans, on the other hand, develop much more slowly, and a recent Oxford Economics and SAP study of businesses across 14 countries indicates that most companies lack the leadership, skills, and practices they will need to compete. This thoughtful and provocative discussion with seasoned Senior executives from a variety of corporations will explore the challenging new skills, mindsets, and practices that tomorrow's leaders will require to thrive-and not be left behind. We'll talk about global trends, as well as, more regional and local trends, taking into account best practices from leading companies in the New York area.
