Disruptive technologies are changing the world we live in and it is imperative that business leaders have a solid understanding of both challenges and opportunities that might arise from them. digitalswitzerland has partnered with IMD Business School and EPFL in order to design and deliver a unique 2 ½ day learning experience centering on disruptive technologies and what they mean for top executives and their companies. In this programme you will not only discover the various technologies (e.g., AI, blockchain, IoT, robotics, digital health), but also understand how you and your business can leverage these technologies to generate new business opportunities and ensure competitiveness in the future.
Start: Monday, September 30 at 16:00 at IMD Closing: Wednesday October 2, at 17:30
The programme starts with a virtual launch webinar and will leverage the IMD applications “Global SignalsTM/ What the TechTM”. We gather at IMD in the afternoon of September 30th to kick off the programme. A unique feature of the programme is that it is integrated with the 2ndIMD-digitalswitzerland Digital Competitiveness Summit. Here some information about the 1stSummit in 2018.
Tuesday will be a full day at EPFL, where you will be exposed to the latest tech trends in AI, Robotics, IoT, and Healthcare.
Wednesday we are back at IMD and will look at big data and emerging business models as well as implications from a leadership and strategy perspective. The programme features a wide range of world-leading technology, strategy and leadership professors.
