1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

The much-anticipated boost in productivity that Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as AI, cloud, and automation were supposed to bring are showing signs of arrival. How can organizations and their HR executives better position themselves to capitalize on this moment? We’ll discuss:

  • Understanding and identifying productivity opportunities.
  • How organizations should be re-architecting their work to optimize human potential.
  • How to think about work as a series of flows, rather than processes, and in service of outcomes, not just outputs.
