Digitalization: Making Global Working Lives Better…or Not?
Keywords: digitalization, technology, shared economy, work/family, leadership, education
Abstract: Traditional mechanisms for conducting business, learning, engaging experts, even initiating/building intimate relationships have given way to electronic and virtual mechanisms. Our lives are more convenient when we can obtain what we need from the comfort of our homes or on our smart phones. But are they better? Our panel of seasoned academics, practitioners, and consultants will share their views on how digitalization has impacted organizations, individuals, and the fabric that binds them, and then engage all participants in envisioning the future—predicting intended and unintended outcomes and prescribing how best to function and find satisfaction in the (still increasingly) digital world.
