Application and Implications
of Emerging Technologies

In-Person | Monday 7 – Wednesday 9 October 2024
Valletta, Malta


The world is on the cusp of a major technological revolution, fuelled by the public release of advanced AI and other technologies. With supporters seeing a utopia at hand and critics foreshadowing the end of civilisation, it is difficult to know what it means for business right now. CRF’s 2024 conference will address exactly that.

Focusing on the implications of technology for improving productivity, driving innovation, and developing people, we will discuss several key areas:

  • Industry impact – which organisations are going to be most affected, why, and how?
  • Skills – most news stories have focused on jobs which have become redundant. What new roles will be created that create business growth, and what skills, both ‘soft’ and ‘hard’, will those new roles require?
  • Work design – what will jobs look like when augmented by these technologies, and how will we design them?
  • Learning and Development – how can this technology be used to learn more effectively, and how can we harness it to assess competency?
  • Leadership – what skillsets will our leaders now need to ensure their organisation takes full advantage of this technology?
  • Organisation Design – what do we need to do to ensure innovation with AI doesn’t happen in silos? How can HR and IT collaborate more effectively?

CRF’s 2024 conference will also address effective change management, which underpins all these focus areas. All new technologies require effective change management, though generative AI currently presents the greatest potential to transform how we work; it will change many work tasks, as well as displacing others and creating new ones. Change will not be spread equally, either – differences between front line and head office, geographies, and age demographics further underline the need to get buy in from the whole organisation.

The implications for people will be vast, and HR must take centre-stage.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the implications of new technologies on your business operations and HR’s central role in managing those implications.
