Supply chain leaders gathered to discuss transformation strategies
in the face of disruptive technology
Speaking at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference – held in London on 20 and 21 September – Lynda Gratton, author and professor of management practice at London Business School, talked of how the rise of technology has pushed the world of work into a period of major transition that will rival the industrial revolution.
Combined with the fact we are living longer, healthier lives, we must prepare for entirely new ways of working, she said.
“We believe the transition we are going through is as great as anything we saw through the industrial revolution, and it’s happening a lot faster”, she said.
