Management 4.0 is about management in the fourth industrial revolution: in the digital age.

Already, we’re living in an age where technology is enabling new business models, disrupting existing business practices, transforming the workplace and shifting the balance of power. We’re talking about management at a time when society is changing — when the workforce is ageing and becoming more inclusive, and where the demands and expectations of consumers and workers are very different to those of previous generations.

This year’s conference will explore the future impact of six key themes, through the expert insights of keynote speakers and engaging workshops.

Technology Transformed

What will innovations like AI, automation and new ways of communicating mean for the role of a manager? Will we see the rise of the digital leader?

Society Transformed

As the population ages and becomes more diverse, what new challenges will managers face and how will leaders adapt? How is the balance of power shifting in the workplace?

Patterns of Work Transformed

How will managers countenance more employees working flexibly and remotely, with a greater emphasis on ‘working smart’ and being objective-driven?

Business Transformed

How can we ensure that rapid, disruptive business models are able to develop managers as they grow? What will technology mean for existing business models?

Leadership Transformed

With command-and-control styles of management becoming extinct, what skills and attributes will tomorrow’s leaders need to thrive? What new leadership styles will evolve?

Lifelong Learning Transformed

Long gone are the days of spending the whole of your career at one company. Up-skilling and re-skilling will become even more important; how should we facilitate this?
