Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean, London Business School, said: “Technology continues to redefine the business landscape. It is an enormously exciting time for business as innovation opens up new markets, new ways to communicate and new experiences for the consumer.
“But change brings with it challenge. Are we ready for the revolution in consumer behaviour? Do we have the management models to keep pace with the changing demographic and expectations of our workforce? These are among the critical questions industry leaders will address.”
Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School, one of the School’s world class faculty, is speaking on a panel that will examine communication and consumer strategies for the digital age.
Professor Birkinshaw says: “Technology is changing the way companies relate to their customers; it is also changing the basic fabric of the firm, in terms of how people collaborate and how decisions get made. New models of working are emerging, and the companies that embrace these new models first will be at a significant advantage.”
