Webinar: Estratègia, tecnologia i globalització: escenari de futur

Aquest seminari és el tercer del Cicle Catalunya Clústers “ESTRATÈGIES PER ENCARAR EL FUTUR”, organitzat per ACCIÓ i pels 29 clústers del programa Catalunya Clústers. 
La crisi de la covid-19 és un gran accelerador. El que passaria en deu anys, passarà en deu mesos. En la turbulència, la constant de creixement l’asseguren les empreses que generen i acumulen dades, coneixement i talent.
La tecnologia es converteix en el major driver econòmic de la història, el més ràpid i el més contundent. Imprescindible per a la creació de riquesa i la distribució de prosperitat, inclús per a la nostra salut i supervivència.
Davant d’aquest context les empreses han de reposicionar-se creant un ecosistema, activant equips d’alt rendiment i actuant com a organitzacions ambidextres que exploten el negoci actual i alhora exploren nous horitzons.
La ponència anirà a càrrec de Xavier Ferràs, Professor titular del Departament d’Operacions, Innovació i Data Sciences d’ESADE.
