Opening Keynote: Diversity and Innovation: Hearing Voices and Getting Your Voice Heard
Professor Neale will focus on the levers of composition, participation, and influence as ways to design for innovation. She will explore the strategies and tactics that teams can use to take advantage of the resources and creativity of the individual members. She will wrap up with a set of prescriptions to help team members improve their ability to get their voices heard, as well as ways in which team leaders can structure interactions so that the voices of divergence may be considered.
|9:45 – 10:45am||
Professor Athey studies the rapid increase in digitization of corporate activities and society, in general, and the opportunities and challenges for businesses. This session will start with an overview of how big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) are being used in business. We will then discuss how companies and management adjust as the business makes heavier use of automation, algorithms and data science. Finally, she will review how digitization changes business models and industry structure, as technology firms and platforms take a more central role in the economy.
|11:00am – 12:30pm||
Introspection, Purposeful Change, and Leadership
Join Professor Lowery for an introspective conversation about what it takes to be a leader and how you are already in your own way as a leader. We all have fears and dreams. Those fears and dreams affect our actions on a daily basis and as a leader, they affect our organizations. Be prepared to feel slightly uncomfortable and go outside your comfort zone during this session.
