About the Webinar

Simply adopting the newest technologies such as mobility or unified communications and collaboration platforms cannot guarantee a rise in performance. In fact, in some cases, unprepared organizations may even see a significant loss in productivity.

Our upcoming webinar will focus on the findings of a recent research study that point toward strong and effective business resources as the most significant differentiator between companies who reap the full benefits of their IT investments and those who don’t.

Dr. Nils Olaya Fonstad of INSEAD’s eLab takes an in-depth look at the ways that business resources and technology investments can be combined to help, or hinder, an organization’s success.
