Type of Event:

Disruption, evolution or extinction of services or societal norms isn’t a new thing. We’ve been displacing professions for centuries - think the blacksmith or the milk man.

In this one-hour workshop, we’ll draw on questions that have emerged from British theorist, Richard Susskind recent work called “outcome thinking”.

You’ll learn:

  • Disruption isn’t a new thing, innovation is a fundamental part of our economic system
  • Disruption isn’t just digital technologies – it’s contemporary changes in existing business, business model and practices
  • Technology’s role in enhancing or renewing business models
  • New management techniques emerging from the tech sector.

The webinar is hosted on Zoom. You’ll receive the webinar link via email shortly after registration.
