Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
Digital transformation is accelerating at an exponential pace. While it disrupts old ways of doing things, it also opens up new avenues of innovation, efficiency, and connectivity. As complexity increases, you have the opportunity to use tech to support your performance, to learn, share ideas, and innovate. This requires thinking differently about how you digitally design your learning and interactions. Agility depends on it.
In this session, you will explore ways you can use digital learning design to make learning the way you work, to unleash the collective intelligence in your organizational community, and to build powerful learning organizations—essential for agility in the digital age.

In this session, you will learn:
- About the role that talent leaders must play as architects of agility in the digital age
