Work is changing in profound new ways. Accenture research performed in collaboration with the World Economic Forum leaves little doubt that work and business will never be the same, begging the question, Is the enterprise prepared to respond meaningfully, and at scale? Probably not. Organizational sensing reveals that only 11% of organizations are truly agile, which means 89% are not.
The experience of organizations pivoting to future-relevant workforce strategies bears that out. Leaders have questions about where to start, what future to solve for, what to message about changes taking place, and working within a culture of ambivalence about new practices.
This session will review Accenture’s analytical approach and observations from experience with Global 500 clients using analytically-driven insights to reshape their future workforce using the “4Bs”: Buy, Build, Borrow, and Bot to form a complete labor sourcing strategy tailored for the times. This includes reviewing a method that decompose job roles into component tasks before evaluating their potential for automation, digital augmentation, and ‘adaptive’ propensity, i.e., talent platforms for gig work, and developing strategies for ‘newskilling’ at scale.
The session is appropriate for HR and business leaders inspired to join a revolution of agility by providing evidence-based decision support on the future of work, as well as researchers and academics, and will conclude with specific action suggestions for people leaders to consider.
