The amazing new innovations we’ve seen in the past few years — robots, drones, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, the Blockchain, and so on — are not the crowning achievements of the second machine age; they’re the warmup acts. Over the next 10 years tech progress will bring more business change and disruption than we’ve seen in the past 50.

How can organizations survive and thrive in the turbulent years to come, as typical business structures and conventional jobs are transformed? How do leaders need to think differently about their markets, strategies, and management philosophies? In this talk, Andy McAfee will tackle these issues, and give an executive’s guide to succeeding in the second machine age.
