Abstract: Future-proofing Businesses and Workforce through Digital Transformation

In the seminar we explore the complex evolution of digital technologies - from stationary information systems to ubiquitous digital ecosystems.  Rather than focusing on information technology per se, this seminar aims is to understand what is driving Digital Transformation and what are the potential repercussions for individuals and businesses. It also aims to assist academics and practitioners to identify the biggest challenges and opportunities associated with Digital Transformation and to understand the organizational capabilities and individual skills are needed to future-proof organizations and workforce in the digital economy.
