The strategic orientation of many companies is focused on digital transformation and the handling of disruptive business models. The digital revolution has also created a new position in management: corporations are increasingly appointing their own Chief Digital Officer or CDO for short, to tackle the mega trend of digitalisation. But what are the most important levers to manage digital change successfully, and where are interfaces to HR management? After all, it is the employees that have to support and shape the change. At Zukunft Personal Europe, keynote speakers Dirk Müller, CIO of Franz Haniel & Cie. and CEO of the digital unit Schacht One, and Heidi Moser, Head of HR at ratioform Verpackungen GmbH, will provide orientation and impulses in a joint keynote. In an advance interview, we spoke with them both about the collaboration between CDOs and HR managers.
The fast pace of modern life requires a high degree of flexibility, courage and emotional intelligence from employers and employees alike. The result is a constant need to adapt to new market conditions, the development of new forms of collaboration and last but not least, the fusing of human intelligence with artificial intelligence. In short, we find ourselves in perpetual beta.
What opportunities and challenges does this present to employers and employees? What will the working world of the future look like? How do we want to work in the future and who will decide?
We want to explore these issues in more detail taking our inspiration from the motto of the exhibition Zukunft Personal Europe 2018: “work:olution – succeed in permanent beta”. With this in mind, we are calling all bloggers to take part in the blog carnival: “How to succeed in permanent beta?” #permanentbeta.
