Technology has become a game changer across all industries. Its rapid pace of change has resulted in significant ambiguity for Board Directors to grapple with. Competitive disruption, even for non-technological or traditional industrial companies, has come in the form of rapidly changing markets, customer behaviour, and pricing -- all driven by underlying changes in the technological capabilities of consumers, markets, regulators, competitors, upstarts, or all of the above.
The session provides the current thinking on how Board Directors should approach technological change, how to ensure that the board is sufficiently informed about relevant emerging technologies, and how it can best help management prepare for both the opportunities and risks posed. It will cover proven methods that directors can use to efficiently and effectively incorporate "technology thinking" into the overall strategy planning process.
"The session has affirmed my own tracking of technological developments & the positive impact on my own industry & the insights on how similar trends are re-shaping other sectors are useful."
Chief Executive, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore

"The session has reinforced in me the need to be alert to disruptive innovations, which can come from unexpected quarters. In countering such "disruptive innovations" we must not be afraid to embrace the new technologies and discard old paradigms."

Chairman, Singapore Technologies Aerospace Ltd
