INNOVATION IN INNOVATION

organizational challenges / fuckup projects
We want to provide the conference’s audience with concrete, tangible knowledge, so we are going to unveil several best practises from companies who have dealt with digitization challenges in the past. To create transparency, our invited experts will discuss the mistakes they made during their journey, the distinction between vision and reality, and all the tools that can help the transition.

The relationship between humans and technology/digitization is still a mystery full of misconceptions and false beliefs. Are we all just irreversibly addicted? If not us, what about the next generation, our children? Is technology a necessary evil in today’s world? We are seeking the answer to these questions with the help of expert opinion from psychologists, addictologists and coaches.

Talking about the effects of the digital economy doesn’t make much sense until we understand what human resources are needed in the first place and how these people reach the labour force market. Our national and international presenters will discuss the issue in great detail and offer possible solutions and insight.
