San Gabriel Valley (SVG)

Technology CEO Group

1st Friday of the month from | 8:15 am – 12:15 pm | Monrovia, CA

Upcoming ZOOM Meeting

 FRIDAY, March 5

Opening Discussion Topic:


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’:

  • Current and expected use of these kinds of superteams?
  • Past results of key results from their use?
  • Key Success factors in implementing them?
  • Handling of people displaced by these technological transformations?

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 Bryan Hinckley, as he makes the Featured Member Presentation.

Bryan Hinckley is Global VP for Immersive Experiences at Electrosonic, Inc., an audio-visual technology company that designs, integrates, and services systems of all sizes. Electrosonic focuses on applications where it provides expert knowledge in high resolution displays, professional audio systems, interactive solutions, sophisticated control systems, and other applications of complex digital media technology.
