“COVID-19 has dramatically disrupted the economy and altered work as we
know it. In order to pivot to the next “normal,” we must re-imagine what
economic progress looks like and how the next workplace and next workforce
supports it”.

COVID-19 has turned conventional economic thinking upside down. Organizational leaders across society must consider new ways to work and create value for their patrons in an age of uncertainty and prolonged social distancing.

Firms are responding by rethinking the modern workplace and traditional management science. Leaders are assessing long-term risks and opportunities in a reshaped economic landscape that is quickly eliminating weak institutions from those built to persevere and reinvent themselves for the next normal.

Accelerating the transition are increases in the use of automation, A.I., and other digital technologies that were already separating early adopters from the rest. The challenge ahead confronts leaders with one of the largest and most complex challenges in recent history: After COVID-19, what is the future of work?

This Tech Talk will explore answers to this question along many different dimensions including business, economic, and technology. Join us to dive deep into the possibilities that may drive the future of work.
