Hosted by Peter McGarahan.
Rapid and breathtaking technology advances are forcing radical changes in how service and support organizations function. This includes their culture, leadership, and even careers.
Global business and social trends, as well as technology spending are driving organizations to accelerate their organizational change plans in order to survive and thrive. They must plan for complete transformation - strategy, structure, people, process, and tools. Are we preparing our professionals to plan for and execute these changes? Are we helping them position themselves and their organizations for success in this dynamically evolving world?
This session will explore the impact of rapidly changing technology and business trends on traditional careers, positions, and skill sets. The wake-up call McGarahan will deliver comes from four-star US General (Ret.) Eric Shineski: "If you don't like change, you'll like irrelevance even less."
