Are you ready for robots to rise?

Disruptive technologies reshape industries and markets in unprecedented ways and at extraordinary speeds. Organisations that succeed are those that adapt rapidly to new opportunities and challenges. Rather than seeing threats they recognise disruptive technologies are a competitive advantage.

71% of organisational tasks are currently performed by humans, 29% by machines. In five years’ time this distribution will become 58% tasks performed by humans, 42% by machines.

This shift in the distribution of tasks requires an adequate management response; jobs redesigned and effective management of the new hybrid workforce, where humans interact with intelligent automation robots. It’s the responsibility of leaders to prepare human workers for this cooperation with automated systems.

This BusinessClass, delivered by Professor Ben Laker of Henley Business School and moderated by Riina Hellström of Peoplegeeks, advises on an insightful response and management approach to deal sensibly with change; providing you techniques on how to manage the transformation including

  • The importance of management and organisational agility,
  • How to lead a split workforce (human & robotic),
  • How to get over our (human) fears.

This BusinessClass is for senior executives and HR directors interested in managing change and leveraging emerging technologies.
