Digital services are becoming an important means for manufacturers to create more value for customers by reducing the risk of downtime and improving performance of customers operations. While such ‘servitization’ has great potential, the transformation towards service-based business models is a challenge requiring both leadership and strong capabilities.
In his presentation, Thomas Frandsen will share key learnings from the CBS research project Driving Competitiveness through Servitization and provide an overview of the recently launched national programme Servitize.dk with CBS as a key research partner, which are both funded by the Danish Industry Foundation aiming to improve the competitiveness of Danish Industry.

Companies accumulated enormous amount of employee data. Despite of the growing interest in evidence-based decisions, this data remains unexplored. As a result, our managerial decisions are often based on guessing rather than knowing. In her talk, Dana Minbaeva, Professor in Strategic and Global HRM at the Department of Strategy and Innovation, will talk about the advantages of having evidence-based approach in managing human capital in organizations.
