Title: Leading Change with Emerging Technology
Presenter: Betty Magome
Industry 4.0 and next generation technologies, such as IoT, blockchain, analytics and AI, will transform how public entities operate, how services are offered, and what outcomes are created. These smart technologies facilitate the emergence of innovative business models that force cities, utilities and other companies to reconsider their roles and scope in new ways. It will be a disruptive change to how many industries operate today. Successful transition to these new emerging business and operating models require expertise in new generation of digital technologies, agile and learning organizations, an innovation culture, new operational processes and policies, and the ability to navigate change. We will explore these new technologies, why they are relevant to our work, challenges, opportunities and key takeaways in migrating to a new paradigm.
