In this interactive workshop, Mark and Thomas will review the impact of digital labor and cognitive technologies, identify areas where these can be applied and collaborate with the group on an opportunities list.

Digital labor and the automation of the human workforce will have a profound impact on enterprises over the next several years. Entire operating models — including people, process, technology, governance and culture — will be reshaped as work carried out by humans is increasingly augmented by software-based virtual agents. We'll examine how some organizations are using an Agile approach to introduce digital labor — using sprints, backlogs and story points to estimate and realize better outcomes.
