As advances in technology rapidly shift the work tasks performed by people vs. those performed by automation and algorithms, organizations need to deconstruct, and then reconstruct, the way work gets done.  They also need to prepare the culture for inevitable changes to workflow and organizational structure. Leveraging data from a brand new, not-yet-released i4cp study – conducted in coordination with USC Professor and industry guru John Boudreau and many F500 companies – we will explore how high-performance organizations are leveraging advanced work automation (AI, robotics, etc.) in the workplace as well as in the HR function.

Session objectives:

  • Creating a change-ready culture
  • The goals of value creation versus cost reduction
  • The tactics of work deconstruction
  • Exploring task analysis versus job or people replacement
