The industrial revolution and the labor-intensive economy it spawned have been replaced by a mind-intensive knowledge economy that’s driven by technology, automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and globalization. It’s become abundantly clear that an entirely new approach to organizing, operating, managing and learning in the knowledge economy is needed.

In the webcast, the speakers will discuss key points from their forthcoming ATD Press book, Minds at Work: Managing for Success in the Knowledge Economy, so you can understand:

  • the distinct differences between the management models created to “manage hands" in the 20th-century business models and the models emerging to successfully “manage minds” in the 21st century
  • why supporting continuous learning, open communication, and “anytime, anywhere” collaboration is critical
  • some of the most successful technology and practices you can use today to start managing minds.
