Artificial Intelligence: New Challenges for Leadership and Management

The Future of Management in an Artificial Intelligence-Based World

Artificial Intelligence: New Challenges for Leadership and Management

21 de marzo de 2018

Barcelona, - IESE Business School

The current technology revolution is reshaping industries, making business models obsolete, growing new companies with a different set of capabilities and creating disruption and social change. The role of general managers is more important than ever in a digital, big data, analytics, robotics and artificial intelligence-based world and the competencies that they need are changing fast. At the same time, there are some classical attributes of the general manager’s functions – providing a sense of purpose, developing a long-term perspective and references, promoting a holistic view of the firm, and engaging people and making teams functional, among others – that are still relevant, but that may take new dimensions in this new, changing business world.

What companies, people and society in general will expect from senior managers in a few years’ time will be different from their current skills and capabilities. Technology is disrupting companies and communities, and general managers, as the ultimate stewards of a company, need to reflect on how to manage this process and help come up with constructive solutions. The purpose of this conference is to discuss those relevant issues for management and management education with an inter-disciplinary perspective that brings together leading management and leadership scholars, experts in AI, CEOs and senior general managers, and deans of leading international business schools.

This is the fifth IESE Leadership Development Conference. This series was launched in 2008, just before the explosion of the financial crisis. Each conference has addressed major topics in business education: leadership, ethics and business social impact (2008); globalization and leadership development (2011); the future of the MBA program in developing a new generation of leaders (2013); and innovation and entrepreneurship in global leadership development (2015).
