    Moderator: Santi Subotovsky | Partner| Emergence Capital

    Speaker: Wade Foster | CEO| Zapier

    Remote workforces have become a topic of hot debate. Companies such as Yahoo and IBM are bringing their workforce back into the office for greater team synergy and efficiency; at the same time, many other companies are building remote workforces, allowing them to hire the most talented employees regardless of their location. Business leaders will debate the pros and cons of a remote workforce. Wade Foster, CEO of Zapier, a company known for it’s 100% remote workforce and it’s Bay Area relocation policy, will make the pro work-from-home argument. A corporate leader focused on bringing teams back into the office will take the con side.

  • The Science of Distributing Collaboration

    Speaker: Paul Leonardi | Duca Family Professor of Technology Management | University of California, Santa Barbara

    Organizations of all types – corporations, universities, NGOs – are increasingly creating teams, project networks, and advisory boards that comprise far-flung members. The evidence suggests that distributed collaboration can be useful for harnessing the best knowledge, accelerating innovation, and building products and services that meet user needs. But distributed collaboration is often difficult to manage due to a host of social, political and technological issues. We will discuss the latest scientific findings about how to overcome the challenges inherent in distributed collaboration to achieve increased performance. We will share examples from companies like General Motors, SAP, Discover, Rakuten, and Jive Software, about the specific plans they have created to implement these scientific findings to make distributed collaboration succeed.
