Details

The Valora Lab will give experienced members of boards of directors an insight into how digitisation, business agility and transformation can be addressed and supported at board level and also provide them with the tools to do just this. As an initial starting point, the issue of digitisation will be highlighted from an executive perspective, and the current position of a typical board of directors as a committee, the changed tasks it has to fulfil and the new obligations it needs to meet will be established. The topics will range from the self-analysis of participants’ own boards of directors as regards the required digital expertise and possible changes in the composition and rough make-up of candidate profiles to new demands placed on governance in relation to innovation management.
Against this backdrop, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the CEO of Valora will present experiences, findings and implemented measures.
It will also be revealed how personnel changes in the Board of Directors have been utilised by the new Chairman to develop additional digital expertise. Here, an explanation will be provided of the objectives and criteria involved in the search for and integration of an appropriate candidate, as well as the related challenges. Presenters: Franz Julen (Chairman of the Board of Directors of Valora), Michael Mueller (CEO of Valora), Adrian Zwingli (entrepreneur).

The lab is not public. It is aimed specifically at existing members of boards of directors with at least one mandate. To register, please send an e-mail directly to susanne@digitalfestival.ch

Which trends will shape the working world of the future?
A rise in levels of personal productivity, extremely straightforward cooperation across company boundaries and increased flexibility as regards working models will be three key developments. But what does this mean in concrete terms? And what role will chatbots, workstream collaboration and multi-touch devices play in our day-to-day work? Together, we will get to the bottom of these and other interesting questions and experience the new technologies live.

Is digitalisation making us lonelier, or is it bringing us closer together? Are digital networks and automation improving our lives or simply increasing competition? Can we achieve more together? How is digitalisation helping us to do this?

As an innovation lab which is part of a locally networked cooperative, we are actively tackling these issues. We rethink existing business models and find new ways for people to work together to make an impact. In our lab, we want to experiment with social technologies in order to make digitalisation work for us so we can all profit from it together. After all, we’re all tech users – and perhaps soon even owners? An interactive workshop with emergent design elements from the RAI Lab team Chantal, Désirée, Fabian, Janine, Romana and Stefan.

In this fast interdisciplinary design thinking workshop we will look for FinTech problems that we can prototype in just 90 minutes. First we will try to find out who is the customer of the problem you try to solve. Then we will try to understand the problem a little bit better and generate first ideas, rapidly prototype first solutions and pitch the best ones to the other workshops participants.
This workshop is for everybody who loves to generate great ideas and first prototypes in teams. So, if you want to spend 90 quiet minutes on your mobile, don’t apply for this workshop.

Pioneer the world of IoT for your company. After a short introduction to the possibilities of IoT, lab participants will team up and have a go at developing their own smart product.
In this lab session, participants will be asked to imagine themselves as manufacturers of a particular product who are looking for ways to make their product smarter. One product will be drawn for each team from a pack of cards. Lab participants will then be asked to imagine that this product were a smart product, able to collect, analyse and evaluate information about its surroundings and communicate with them and their customers. The participants will work together in groups to develop a smart product which would offer added value to their customers and their company. At the end of the lab session, everyone will reconvene and each group will pitch their idea to the others. A small prize will be awarded for the best product.

Details

It takes more than good strategies and endless PowerPoint presentations to prepare an organisation for the digital transformation and give it a more competitive edge – without a modern leadership model and the ability to get employees on board, inspire and lead them, it is practically impossible. The process is similar to the planning and implementation of a political campaign to mobilizse volunteers or a corporate campaign carried out using the business campaigning® model. In this lab, a bit of theory and some real-life case studies will provide valuable lessons for change management and on how to successfully navigate the digital transformation.
