Digitization has proven to be one of the primary drivers of disruptive change. From media to healthcare to manufacturing, we are witnessing the widespread transition from a human workforce to increasingly digital one — one with the ability to exponentially metamorphosizes practically every industry At the core of digitization lies a set of properties which, when fully understood, can be leveraged for positive global change. Join Pascal Finette as he decodes the nine core principles behind disruption through digitization and shows you how to leverage them in your practice.
In a connected world, the way we innovate and do business is changing rapidly and radically. By embracing the “wisdom of the crowds” and co-creating with customers and suppliers, we can tap into a resource that was never before possible: a universe of experts and an infinitely deeper and wider talent pool. Singularity’s Pascal Finette explores why organizations that adopt these principles are outcompeting the market and their much larger and better-resourced rivals. Drawing upon his experiences at Mozilla, the pioneer at leveraging its open source roots, Pascal explores the unlikely success story of the Firefox web browser (now used by more than 500 million worldwide) and emerging trends today. You’ll learn what works, what’s next and how to leverage these essential competitive advantages in your organization.
