What: WiT Breakfast Date: How technologies enhance our organizations and lives by Deloitte
When: 09.03.2021 08:00-09:00
Where: Online Stream (Zoom)
1) STRATEGY, ENGINEERED: The distinction between corporate strategy and technology strategy is blurring—each needs to inform the other. Strategists are turning to strategic technology platforms equipped with advanced analytics, automation, and AI. Organizations are using these tools to continually identify internal and external strategic forces, inform strategic decisions, and monitor outcomes.
Speakers: Anna-Reetta Kangasmaa leads Operations Transformation focusing on operating model transformation and Jenna Hakkarainen specializes in business and growth strategies and new business development at Monitor Deloitte Finland. Anna-Reetta and Jenna will talk about how technology choices bear a greater role in enabling—or potentially constraining—organizational strategy.
2) REBOOTING THE DIGITAL WORKPLACE: As the world’s largest unplanned work-from-home experiment continues, many business leaders are asking as yet unanswered questions: When the dust settles, will remote work become the rule or the exception? Is a permanently remote workforce sustainable? How will productivity and employee well-being be affected?
Speakers: Anna-Maria Lehtonen leads projects related to the future of work and Petra Mursu focuses on organization transformation, change management and communications in Human Capital services at Deloitte Finland. More often than not, technology is one the main drivers of these transformations. Anna-Maria and Petra will talk about rebooting the digital workplace: how data and technology can help us build employee experience regardless of physical location.
