CMI Annual Scotland Conference 2019

Management 4.0

The world is changing. Don’t get left behind.

Robots. Artificial Intelligence. Digital Leaders.

We’re not talking about science fiction here. These once-novel concepts are becoming ever more standard in businesses across the country. Join us as we explore how to keep up.

Technology like robots, drones and self-driving cars is held up as the key driver behind the Fourth Industrial Revolution — but dig a little deeper, and you’ll find there’s more than meets the eye.

The digital native generation is entering the workplace with expectations around patterns of work and corporate responsibility which organisations are having to respond to. The ageing nature of an increasingly diverse workforce brings both new opportunities and challenges alike, with key puzzles like lifelong learning and diversity and inclusion to solve — and that’s only scratching the surface...

Join us in Edinburgh on Wednesday 23rd October, as we discuss the six key areas in which the business world is evolving, and the skills managers and leaders need to develop now to stay relevant as they unfold.

We’ll be exploring...
