Workshop on Digital Transformations-2019

Workshop on Digital Transformations

Emerging technologies and digital business models are fundamentally transforming how firms compete with one another. Traditional boundaries and value networks of firms are getting disrupted at a rapid pace, forcing organisations to rethink strategies not just for business growth and competitive advantage, but also for survival. Technology giants as well as digital native entrepreneurs are increasingly challenging the dominance of large established industry incumbents across diverse sectors. Digital technologies are also opening up a host of unprecedented opportunities for executives and leaders across all business functions to redefine value, innovate, shape culture, collaborate, and grow. 
The purpose of this workshop on digital transformations is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of leaders from industry, government and academia to build a deeper understanding of technology-driven disruptions and sources of competitive value in the digital economy. Through these conversations, we will explore how emerging technologies are not only transforming business models but also driving newer forms of engagement with stakeholders, organisational structures, and organisation of labor markets. 
The four key themes for the event are:
  • AI and the Future of Work, Products and Services
  • Designing a Digital Blueprint for the Industrial Economy
  • Regulating the Gig Economy
  • Leveraging Start-up Ecosystems to Beat the Competency Trap
The workshop, hosted by the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE), will be held on 11th and 12th October, 2019 at the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad. The workshop will comprise keynote presentations, research presentations, and panel discussions on key issues around the focused topics identified for the workshop. 
We welcome you to join in the conversation.
