DruckerForum2015-Blog

We are pleased to announce that getAbstract will be a sponsor of the Global Peter Drucker Forum 2015 on November 5-6, 2015 in Vienna, Austria.

The 7th Drucker Forum touches a key theme of our time: It will look at the technology Tsunami – with Robotics, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, and The Internet of Things – through the lens of humanity.

This leads into fundamental questions to be discussed at the 2015 Conference:

  • In a technology-driven economy, is management still about people?
  • Does it need a fundamental makeover?
  • How can digital technology be leveraged to augment human capacity as opposed to automate and replace it?
  • Can we achieve breakthrough innovation across the board creating new opportunity for people?
  • Based on the new technology infrastructure – is a new economic order in the making?
  • What is the role of the public sector in this secular transformation?

The 2015 list of world class speakers and thought leaders includes:

  • Rachel Botsman, Founder of the Collaborative Lab and author of What’s Mine Is Yours
  • Tom Davenport, Distinguished Professor in Management and Information Technology at Babson College and author of Analytics at Work
  • Steve Denning, Forbes contributor, Member of the Board of Directors Scrum Alliance and author of The Secret Language of Leadership
  • Henry Mintzberg, Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University and author of Rebalancing Society
  • Dambisa Moyo, International economist and writer on macroeconomy and global affairs, and author of Winner Take All
  • And many more…

Thomas Bergen, co-founder and CEO of getAbstract will participate in the session “Will Technology lead us into an Entrepreneurial Society?“ Find out more on this and other sessions in the conference program.
