The Future of Work: The 4 Shifts Your Organization Must Make…Now!The best algorithms will still depend on humans asking a better question. Natalie Nixon

In this session, Natalie Nixon offers provocative ways to embrace the future of work and outlines 4 shifts every organization must make to be nimble and adaptive.
