Business Advice We Shouldn’t Believe Anymore.

The amazing new innovations we’ve seen in the past few years — robots, drones, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, the Blockchain, and so on — are not the crowning achievements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. They are the warm up acts. Over the next 10 years, tech progress will bring more business change and disruption than we’ve seen in the past 50 years. Is technology squeezing out jobs? How can business survive and thrive in the turbulent years to come?

Hear from Andrew McAfee, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Initiative on the Digital Economy and a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management, as he shares his analysis of the new world and a toolkit for thriving in it.  As Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management, Andrew studies how technology is changing business, the economy, and society. His 2014 book on these topics, The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies, has won several prestigious awards and has been both a New York Times and Wall Street Journal top ten bestseller. His newest book, Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future, published June 2017, offers an executive’s guide to succeeding during this turbulent era when technologies are hurtling forward at such a startling pace.

Named to both the Thinkers 50 list of the world’s top management thinkers and to the Politico 50 group of people transforming American politics, Andrew writes popular blogs, academic papers, and articles for publications including Harvard Business ReviewThe EconomistThe Wall St. Journal, and The New York Times; has talked about his work on CNN and 60 Minutes, at the World Economic Forum, TED and the Aspen Ideas Festival, with Tom Friedman, Charlie Rose, and Fareed Zakaria; as well as in front of innumerable global audiences.
