Enterprises are innovating and digitalizing rapidly to remain relevant. However, merely focusing on technological innovation isn't sufficient anymore; companies are constantly out-innovating each other. Competitive advantage in the conventional sense has become passé and it has become imperative that companies need to relook at their organization as a whole to hold on to that edge, including their talent strategy. Though talent acquisition strategy and development has become the top focus for C-level leaders to win in the ongoing race to be leaders, true talent transformation by leveraging digital technologies is something that leaders to focus on.
This keynote by Zinnov will focus on how the HR function can lead the digital transformation from the front, shape an organizational culture of relentless innovation, leverage RPA/platform and AI to locate and engage potential candidates, and the next-gen tools that companies are leveraging to retain talent.
Any transformation, particularly a strategic one, is a big challenge. Often, it's not clear at the offset as to how it's going to be fully accomplished. The idea of not backing down from unknown challenges is what lies at the heart of any transformation - be it personal or in business. This inspirational talk by Rick Crandall, a seasoned technology veteran who chose to take a road less travelled, will explore what it takes for leaders to break away from their comfort zone, find the right resources and break down the problem, in a way that is both pragmatic and keeps the passion alive.
In the digital era, enterprises are focusing on strategies that will enable scalable growth. In most cases, enterprises would consider replicating their competitor's strategy or relying on the tried and tested mantra as the safest bet to augment growth. However, with the unprecedented scale of digital disruptions happening, such old strategies become irrelevant and turn into a recipe for failure. In this talk, a leader will share their experience on how to build dynamic organizations with a growth instinct at its core, where leaders apply both reason and instinct to hyperscale at an accelerated pace.
In FY2019 alone, enterprises spent USD 2.3Bn on Robotic Process Automation (RPA), while the global RPA addressable market stands at a whopping USD 50Bn. Though there are massive new opportunities for companies to reap automation-related benefits, companies are struggling to articulate the ROI that they are looking for and their readiness to adopt RPA at a companywide level. At the initial stage , the expectations from RPA are improving productivity and reducing costs. But RPA is much more than that and can add value and increase the business itself.
The panel discussion will focus on the key levers of success for RPA adoption ,execution of the RPA strategy and how RPA can be the differentiating factor in value creation for the company.
