New Program

Rapid technological advances, shifting global product and labor markets, evolving regulatory regimes, and the quickly emerging gig economy are having a profound impact on the fundamental nature of work. Developing specific, actionable strategies requires more than a recognition of looming challenges and the application of general rubrics. Managing the Future of Work will give you the tools now to build sustainable competitive advantage in the future.

This program is offered in collaboration with Harvard Business School's Project on Managing the Future of Work.

Managing the Future of Work goes beyond anticipating change by helping participants frame specific questions relevant to their companies and generate specific hypotheses for solutions. Case study discussions and lectures by HBS faculty, influential guest speakers, and discussions with highly accomplished peers center around the challenges in moving beyond outdated workforce development models and redefining the workplace.
