OD Conversations: DigiTech, 4th Industrial Revolution, and OD

February 21, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Target OD Competency: Designing Interventions

Technology, particularly its application to OD practice and its accessibility to OD practitioners continue to pose a big challenge to traditional OD practice. Through this Conversation, the ODPN endeavors to bridge the gap so that by the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Navigate the changes imposed by the current and future Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and digital technologies shaping the world of work and OD
  • Have a drone’s view of 4IR and DigiTech
  • Examine the organization’s emerging coping strategies; and
  • Discuss the change imperatives in the future OD practice.

Session Topics

  • Introducing 4IR and DigiTech: What it wants to see in your Workplace
  • Emerging technologies: AR/VR, IoT/IoE, Dematerialization, Learning Analytics, People Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Machine and Deep Learning, Blockchain and SmartDocs, SmartHealth, Chatbots and Robots, OD Education and the Professionals among others
  • Coping strategies (organizations, the profession and your career)
  • Public Conversations
