Please join us for a converation with PK Agrawal,  Regional Dean and CEO of Northeastern University - Silicon Valley on "The Future of Jobs in a Disruptive World". 

The forces of disruptive change are gathering momentum.  Technology driven change drivers such as  Robotics, 3-D printing, sharing economy, mobility, big data, and cloud computing, to name a few, are fundamentally restructuring the nature of work, and therefore, the future of employment.  As these change drivers run its course within the next decade, the nature of jobs and employment will change accordingly.  Many job classes are likely to become extinct while new occupations will emerge to fill the gap.  As an example, doomsayers postulate that robots will make humans redundant.  Others would argue that economic history tells a very different story.   

This brief presentation followed by group discussion is intended to explore the nature of these changes and how organization leaders could harness these trends to successfully reshape their organization’s future. 

Presenter: PK Agarwal, Regional Dean & CEO, Northeastern University – Silicon Valley

Moderator: Jim Spohrer , Director Global University Program and The Cognitive Institute, IBM

We thank our sponsors IBM and Northeastern University for thier support.
