Join your peers from companies such as Ford, GE, Merck, Microsoft, Pfizer, PwC, Red Bull, Dolby, and Zillow for an interactive discussion of the future of work and the agile organization with five global thought leaders:
- Dr. Rob Cross, the Edward A. Madden Professor of Global Business at Babson College
- Dr. Amy Edmondson, the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School
- Dr. Bob Sutton, Professor of Management Science and Engineering and a Professor of Organizational Behavior (by courtesy) at Stanford

- Dr. Michael Arena, Chief Talent Officer at General Motors
Topics covered will be creating agility through internal networks, realigning jobs to align with the evolving nature of work, the impact of destructive friction within organizations that leads to inefficiency, and leadership practices that create psychological safety to encourage employees to speak up.
