Webinar Overview

In the Connected Economy, value is created through the technology-enabled links between people, machines, and organizations.

Every organization now faces a challenging shift: According to a new study by HBR Analytic Services (HBR-AS), more than half of the companies surveyed believe that a substantial part of their revenue is under threat from a new wave of digital disruption.

To counter that threat, organizations all over the world are changing how they operate to become part of the Connected Economy. 

But one group, the Connected Economy leaders, is already gaining rewards from new connected business models. These leaders have seen significantly stronger revenue growth over the past two years than their less connected rivals - due to their ability to exploit information at speed through their use of hardware, software, and networking technologies. 

On June 16, in a Harvard Business Review live event, Abbie Lundberg and a panel of experts will explore the keys to competing in the Connected Economy, using insights from the new study, The Ecosystem Equation: Collaboration in the Connected Economy, sponsored by IBM and conducted by HBR-AS. 

The panel will discuss the strategies for operating in the Connected Economy, and the way that the relationship between IT and the line of business leaders is changing to a new model based on collaboration and engagement. Paulo Carvao, General Manager of Sales for IBM Systems Hardware, will close the discussion with a concluding perspective from IBM.

If your company wants to become a leader in the new Connected Economy, join HBR on June 16.
