In its 3rd third year, DISRUPT.SYDNEY™ is Australia’s first and oldest disruption conference. This year our speakers and audience explored the implications of digital disruption for business, society and our everyday lives, under the theme “Disruption for Good”.
DISRUPT.SYDNEY.2016, in its 4th year, is Australia’s first and oldest disruption conference. In 2016 we engaged deeply with the topic of change itself. Our speakers and workshop facilitators addressed a range of crucial questions.
Under the theme “Living Disruption” DISRUPT.SYDNEY.14 offered two keynotes, a number of TED-style short talks, a panel discussion and hands-on workshops on various topics from innovation to social network analysis. Importantly, the event created many opportunities for networking and informal exchange.
Two of the biggest challenges facing modern organisations in disrupted marketplaces are 1) to rapidly create new insights and 2) to accelerate professional development and knowledge transfer to stay on top of change. This workshop brings together the ground-breaking work of Gary Klein in these areas.
The Digital Disruption Research Group and Sydney Business Insights were joined by speakers Euan Semple, Simon Terry, Sandra Peter, and Anne Bartlett-Bragg who shared their experiences and debated the key issues facing leadership teams in the digital future of business. This panel was chaired by Professor Kai Riemer, leader of the DDRG .
The session will draw upon three years of research into automation and the future of work by Leslie Willcocks and Mary Lacity, covering multiple industries, applications, and shared services, and uses case studies to establish action principles that mitigate automation risks.
