Superteams, as described below, have been with us for decades. Why discuss them now? In December, Deloitte, a major global consulting firm, based on their research, listed Superteams as a top workforce trend to watch in 2021. As they said: During the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations doubled down on teams and teaming as a survival strategy to enable adaptability and speed…
The next frontier in teaming is superteams: combinations of people and technology leveraging their complementary capabilities to pursue outcomes at a speed and scale not otherwise possible… many organizations still tend to view technology as a tool and enabler rather than as a team member and collaborator.
Most respondents …to our survey… said they view artificial intelligence (AI) mainly as an automation tool – a substitute for manual labor-rather than a way to augment or collaborate with human capabilities. …Executives responding to the 2021 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends survey recognized that the use of technology and people is not an “either-or” choice but a “both-and” partnership.
We’ll have a presentation on this “both-and” partnership. Then our Members’ Opening Discussion will focus on Members’:
Then, as always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?”
We’ll also be serving as Strategic Advisory Board Members to ABL’s Kenneth Shen, as he makes the Featured Member Presentation.
Kenneth Shen is currently the Managing Partner at Half Past Nine, a digital strategy management consulting firm, architecting actionable digital strategy for small-to-mid sized companies. Previously, he was the VP of Marketing for Pressure Profile Systems, a global supplier of the world’s most advanced tactile sensors, and co-founder and CSO at Altitude University, an advanced training platform for the drone industry.
Our Orange County Technology Round Table meets on the 1st Thursday of each month. We have been meeting via ZOOM since April, and look forward to meeting again in person – once we can do so safely, hopefully early in the New Year.
"The best thing for me about ABL is the learning that takes place. I enjoy listening to problems my colleagues are facing and then what kind of solutions are there to deal with those problems. In the process, I gain a wealth of knowledge to improve my business."
"ABL allows you to set aside everything else and really just listen, interact, and think about a whole completely different set of issues than you will on a day-to-day basis."
"It's worth every penny. The amount of value is remarkable."
"ABL has been an invaluable experience for me. I get better every month with every meeting as I leverage the collective expertise of my fellow Members."
