About this event

Abstract image of economic data.

The covid-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation worldwide with companies starting to invest in new technologies and updating legacy systems. The ability of organisations to adapt to these changes will define their long-term competitiveness in the global market.

While the increasing adoption of A.I., big data, automation and other new technologies is occurring at a breakneck pace, most companies in Japan are still struggling to transform the most important aspect of the corporate value system – their workforce

In the 2020 IMD Digital Competitiveness Ranking, Japan ranked 22nd in digital talent and 27th in digital competitiveness. For Japanese companies to remain competitive in the global market, business leaders must cultivate a digitally-savvy workforce, which poses a great challenge to Japan’s ageing society.

Join us and our panel of distinguished speakers as we examine some of these issues:

  • How can companies successfully develop training programmes for employees of all ages and technical skill levels?
  • What are the key pillars of the multi-stage process of re-skilling and where should managers start?
  • What sort of approaches should be used and which platforms would help companies achieve these goals?
  • How can companies use data analytics to measure employees KPIs?
  • How to craft and implement a digital culture within the company, managing the balance between technological and interpersonal skills
