How organisations are responding to technology disruption

How organisations are responding to tech disruption

CCMA Open Forum - In this month's breakfast briefing, Derek Lande from Accenture tackles the issue of competitive agility and how organisations are responding to technology disruption.

In an environment where the pace and disruptive impact of new technologies is increasing, organisations are increasingly trying to predict what will impact their business and plan how to respond. This event will explore some of the long term technology trends and examine why the pace of disruption is accelerating.

In the face of accelerating and increasingly harder to predict disruption, many organisations are focusing on enhancing their competitive agility as the one certain requirement for future success. We'll discuss how achieving agility touches on everything from culture to organisation to process and technology.

This informative breakfast briefing, held at Accenture's offices in Dublin will begin at 08:00 and finish at 09:30

Date: 25/09/2019

Venue: Accenture The Dock, 7 Hanover Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin
