The changes facing society demand a degree of innovation never seen before. Sharing is a step on a larger digital journey that began as early as the 1990s with the Internet. Today this dynamic tool is helping us to utilize resources more efficiently and sustainably. But are we using it effectively enough?
The digital shift presents politicians with new challenges. Fast and effective political decisions are needed, but are politicians and businesses able to keep pace?
“The Millennials” are the leaders of tomorrow. A generation dedicated to working for triple bottom line – people, planet, profit. How will this affect business?

With new digital solutions and changing consumer patterns, society is using and organizing resources differently than before. Consumer focus has become central to industry. Innovation is no longer confined to industrial silos, and traditional industrial boundaries are disappearing. We need to see innovation in a new light, while devising new ways to collaborate in the future.
New forms of value creation are emerging. New business models and data monetization will be central to new digital solutions. This presents great challenges, but also great opportunities. This restructuring requires access to capital and risk management. Partnerships, crowdfunding and innovative financial solutions will be important factors for success going forward.

Wise, creative minds flourish when challenged by unconventional leadership. Lifelong learning, diversity, global jobs, flexibility, compensation and values mean more to people of principle than traditional career trajectories.
How do we create a culture to attract innovators? What does this require from management? How can you change your own culture?
The toughest competition will be for the best minds. Success will be measured by an organisation’s ability to attract and retain talent.

After an exciting day at the Technology Summit we invite you all to our traditional Meet & Mingle Dinner.
This is a great venue for enjoyable get-togethers, good discussions and reflections after the conference program – and an excellent opportunity to make new and useful contacts.
We can offer good food and drink in venerable and historic surroundings. Kongsberg’s history starts in year 1624 with the start of the silver mining operations. So what is better than discussing future solutions in the museum’s old melting hut where it all began.
