In many ways, the future of work is now.
Recent years have changed nearly everything about the workplace, from where we work to how we work. An even bigger shock that’s likely to reshape work for decades is the reinvigoration of artificial intelligence due to advances in generative AI.
Generative AI will change the jobs of millions, but will it be a force for creating workforce value or, as some fear, a job-destroying disruptor? And where should leaders start when considering how and why to apply this rapidly advancing technology to unlock potential within their teams?
Gain perspective from our guest speaker, Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst J. P. Gownder, who has researched the impacts of AI and automation on the future of work for more than a decade, and Lexington Griffith, Point B’s leading AI expert. You’ll learn about:
- Key “shocks” that necessitate the continuous reinvention of work
- The 4 M’s of generative AI and how leaders can use them to design a future of work strategy
- Why investing in “RQ,” the Robotics Quotient, can help you succeed with AI in the workplace
- Human potential in the future of work and how humans and AI will work together
- The crucial role of several types of balance – between technology and human factors; between urgency and pacing; between capabilities and aspirations – in planning your path forward
