Organizations in The Day After Tomorrow

Peter Hinssen

Peter Hinssen

Chairman & Co-Founder

Nexxworks

We usually focus on the here and now, which makes sense, but we also spend a lot of time thinking of tomorrow: what will be our future value? How will our company survive disruption? It’s tomorrow that keeps us up at night. Though many don’t think much about the future, the greatest of thinkers who imagine the ideas, concepts notions or inspirations that focus on The Day After Tomorrow are the ones who create change in companies, industries and even the world.

In ‘The Day After Tomorrow’, Peter will talk about the right model of operations, the right organizational structure, and the right culture to maximize your chances for survival. Peter will share practical examples of pioneers who managed to move beyond and were able to change the course of entire industries. He will describe how they did it, so you can learn from their mistakes and their immense successes. But above all, he will discuss the people, the talent, the mind-set and the structures you will need to optimize your chances to thrive.

Creativity Triumphs Experience

Peter Arvai

Peter Arvai

CEO and Co-Founder

Prezi

The life expectancy of the most successful companies in the world has gone from over 60 years to mere 18 years today. The only way to survive in this economy is by constantly reinventing who you are and what you do. For this, we don’t need to be born as a genius or an artist to be creative. What makes the difference is the mindset.

Josh Bersin

Josh Bersin

Principal & Founder

Bersin by Deloitte

Over the last three years there has been a complete reinvention of the entire marketplace for HR software, platforms, and tools. While cloud-based systems have been replacing legacy software, a new industry of tools for team management, agile performance management, digital learning, cognitive recruiting, and productivity improvement are here. These new systems, built in a new “digital HR architecture,” are reinventing the way HR and IT teams should think about technology. In this research-based presentation, Josh Bersin will explain this new marketplace and give you guidance on ways to develop your digital HR strategy for the coming years.

Framing digital strategy for transforming culture and mindset

Yvette Cameron

Yvette Cameron

SVP, Global Head of Strategy

SAP SuccessFactors

Yesterday’s HR transformation focused on improving systems and simplifying processes. Lots of companies looked to the cloud to do so. But today’s digital HR transformation is about improving people’s experiences at work, and creating an organizational culture centered on high performance. Today in the midst of massive transformation, research shows that only 16% of companies are poised to succeed. In this session, Yvette Cameron will address how emerging as a digital winner requires rethinking your approach to managing and developing talent, your organizational structure, your leadership, and the cultures that are created in the organization.

HR Tech for Good

Leighanne Levensaler

Leighanne Levensaler

Senior Vice President

Workday

As workplace culture continues to have a major influence on company success, business leaders are thinking more and more about how their organizations can do well by doing good – by establishing (and sticking to) corporate values, evaluating how they treat employees, and reconsidering the impact they have on customers and the world at large. Workday has been an early advocate for a value-based business approach centered around core values and an employee-centric company culture. Leighanne Levensaler, senior vice president, corporate strategy, Workday, will discuss how HR technology can be used to shape culture, create engaging employee experiences, inspire action, and positively impact business outcomes.

The Fourth Transformation

Robert Scoble

Robert Scoble

Entrepreneur in Residence

UploadVR

Augmented Reality is coming. Virtual Reality will take entertainment minutes away. Over the next decade we will look at our smartphone screens less and less as we use things like Magic Leap more and more.

Even if you use your mobile phone's screen to watch a virtual reality event, it will be quite a different experience than staring down at a mobile phone in your hands.

Plus, you will look at, and interact with your world quite differently thanks to beacons, Internet of Things, new kinds of sensors and artificial intelligence systems to fuse data, analyze it, and present it in new ways.
