Blockchain will fundamentally change how businesses operate, people interact and the world shares information. The impact of distributed ledger will be close to or exceed that of the creation of the world wide web. Companies are only beginning to see, understand, and explore the potential applications and uses of distributed ledger. As a strategist, it is a difficult task to make sense of the fragmented landscape while continuing to manage the daily pressures and needs of a successful organization. To survive, companies must embrace blockchain, incorporating it into their existing strategies and start building core competencies now.
On October 3, 2018, a group of strategy executives will convene to explore these issues and discuss the concept of distributed ledger and blockchain technology. The group will explore the impact it will have on the future of business and the implications it has on strategy now and in the future. Nitin Gaur, Director of the IBM Blockchain Labs, will present his insights and lead a series of discussions that will help the group understand blockchain and give them actionable ideas that they can take back to use in their own organizations.
