TECHNOLOGICAL DISRUPTION︱AI︱AUTOMATION︱BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION︱TECHNOLOGY ROADMAP︱METAVERSE︱WEB 3︱INNOVATION︱EXPERIMENTATION
If there is anything the last 3 years has highlighted, it is that the only certainty is uncertainty itself. Lasting economic, geopolitical, environmental and technological disruptions have redefined the business environment, and this ‘new norm’ is perhaps best summed up by the Collins Dictionary Word of the Year 2022, ‘permacrisis’.
For organisations, this new context has emphasised the need to build resilience and adaptability, accelerate digital transformation initiatives and embrace disruption as a catalyst for opportunity. But now, with added economic pressures, the stakes have been raised once again.
In order to navigate this uncertain and competitive environment, business and technology leaders face a difficult balancing act. How do they deliver efficiencies, productivity and growth in the short term, whilst also innovating and experimenting with the disruptive trends and technologies that enable long-term growth?
Our members joined us at Chief Disruptor LIVE May 2023, Navigating Uncertainty: Driving business value now whilst innovating for future growth, and heard from senior leaders from across startups, scaleups, enterprise and the public sector on how to transform strategies, mindsets and technologies now whilst also leveraging cost-effective disruptive technologies, innovation and experimentation in the future.
Unlocking Hidden Value from Technology
In this cost-saving and uncertain environment, realising technology-enabled productivity, resilience and security provides an invaluable competitive edge. But to unlock the potential of technology and drive digital transformation, leaders must make strategic decisions to optimise.
Innovation and Experimentation in 2023
In the last 3 years, innovating and experimenting with a clear vision, in terms of strategy, mindset and technology, has enabled organisations to navigate disruption. In 2023, understanding what innovation and experimentation mean to your organisation is key.
Delivering Competitive Advantage through Data-Driven Insights
During uncertainty, data is no longer ‘collected for the sake of it’. Having the right data at the right time has become a competitive advantage; capable of driving productivity and innovation within operations and processes and propelling organisations towards growth and delivering results now.
How to Delight and Retain Your Customers
Customer experience is becoming increasingly complex; it must be seamless, secure, personalised, consistent and omnichannel to name a few. Making sense of this, at a time when customer loyalty, trust and engagement are key, is a fundamental task for technology leaders.
The Role of Disruptive Technology
Disruptive technologies will transform industries. But right now, organisations are often limited by budget and risk. Before making any decision, business leaders must understand the technology, explore fruitful business cases and evaluate the impact it will have on their sector.
Putting People at the Centre of Your World
The challenges of hybrid working, recruitment and retention are well documented. But to compete, organisations need an innovative workforce driven by diverse thinking, disruption mindsets, engaged leadership and clear purpose. How we deliver this demands new approaches, accountability and leaders.
