Session Title “The Importance of Access to Credible Knowledge in the Age of Digital Transformation”
Session Abstract Many industries were already in the midst of a digital transformation due to changing consumer behaviors. Artificial Intelligence is disrupting every industry you can think of and project management is no exception to this rule. According to AI Innovators: Cracking the Code on Project Performance report by PMI, 81% of project managers admitted that their organization has already been impacted by AI. 

Due to the pandemic, many companies have switched to hybrid or remote work environments, business leaders have focused on digital-first strategies to improve productivity and efficiency. As digitisation continues to drive innovations and data, there is an increased need to break down knowledge silos and use credible resources to help understand the data and use it to make better business decisions. 
The reality is, every industry relies on credible expertise, and project managers need to be able to quickly access the right knowledge and expert resources at the right time in order to remain competitive in their fields. 

Key takeaways from this session 

● How AI technology can help remove knowledge silos, identify expertise across the company for improved knowledge sharing 

● The Implementation of AI learning to improve data organisation, transforming information into knowledge for improved project management.

Session Title“Grow at Maximum Speed by changing the Mission of the Finance team”
Session AbstractThe pandemics has presented an unprecedented challenge in business survival. The change in consumer habits and new substitutions coming from online and offline scenarios have drastically shifted the competition landscape so fast that no one could have planned for. Companies that are the first to identify and execute on new business opportunities are more likely to survive. Turning threats into opportunities, some even beat competitors or created a new market for themselves.

Finance has traditionally been positioned as a supporting team that mainly takes charge of the financials and audit compliance matters. However, companies with high performance well often have the Finance team involved in strategic planning and decision-making processes. A Finance team with full potential realized can identify business opportunities, execute new initiatives fast and maximize growth by taking calculated risks. The presentation will discuss about how to incorporate the Finance team into your winning strategy for business expansion.
