Emergn is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of the 10th Global Peter Drucker Forum.
This year’s forum will explore the intersection of technology and humanity. What are the big picture implications of technologies like artificial intelligence on the workforce?
In the event’s opening keynote, Emergn CEO Alex Adamopoulos proposes that business leaders are the most important players in the effort to solve these complex issues. Great leaders light the path, preparing their people for the future of work by promoting continuous education.
Emergn further explored these topics in several venues leading up to the Drucker Forum, including new research, articles, video, and on our podcast, The Emerging World of Work.

We asked several global enterprise technology leaders how they’re responding to the challenge. Here’s what they had to say.
Do you ever think about how you think?
If leaders are the most important players in influencing the future of work, then the way these individuals think, lead and navigate opportunities will have a major impact on their workforces.
Emergn has partnered with Kinetic Thinking to conduct original research into the way leaders think. The Entrepreneurial Styles Assessment helps respondents understand their preferred way for engaging in ‘novel’ situations, and reveals alternative approaches that help them face new situations more effectively.
The research is ongoing – sign up here to receive more information about the results when they become available.
To help you determine your preferred approach to work, you can take the assessment here. It will only take a few minutes to complete and will give you a greater awareness of how you engage with novel situations — those times when you are faced with something new or have an insight into how to make a difference and want to take your idea further. Once you know where you are, you can start to experiment with alternative approaches based on the specific challenges you are currently facing at work. By understanding what your current preferences are, you can be more deliberate about any changes you make to your ways of working.
Listen to the Emerging World of Work
The conversation continued on The Emerging World of Work, where we asked some of the world’s top thinkers on the transformative enterprise about the skills, perspectives, and qualities of great leaders. Listen and subscribe to the show on any podcast provider.

Alex reflected on all of these themes in his most recent articles for the Forbes Boston Business Council. Read his most recent perspectives below.
The AI revolution is about the fusion of people and technology, blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological in a way that is poised to dramatically reshape our day-to-day lives in ways we can’t even imagine yet.
There is no one-size-fits-all agile methodology, nor is any one methodology guaranteed to deliver certain results. That’s because you can’t fit Agile neatly into one box. It’s a big idea meant to drive change, not a prescribed set of best practices that are the change themselves.
One of the key challenges still facing organizations is that they tend to put people in roles that support the products the company currently makes instead of considering how the business will evolve over time and, more importantly, what value needs to be created to better serve customer needs.
