For the first time in the human history, 8 billion people can be connected. What does
this connectivity mean for our civilization moving forward? In a hyperconnected world, distance and time have different connotations in decision-making and conventional boundaries between global and local become blurred to offer new ways for organizations to plan and operate. Yet, conventional approaches that once led to vertical silos with deep expertise as a way to optimize cost, maximize profit, and increase operational efficiency have now proven to be insufficient in overcoming well-being problems facing people and the planet. In this session, Andre Nogueira will moderate a conversation between Patrick Whitney, Anirban Ghose and Sam Pitroda about ways forward. The conversation will be based on Sam’s recent book, Redesign the World - A Global Call to Action.
