Markus Hällgren

Markus Hällgren is a professor in management at Umeå university. He is genuinely curious about the mundane in anything extreme. He has researched extreme contexts such as mountaineering, emergency departments at hospitals and the police.

He has published extensively in various academic and practitioner oriented journals. His latest project, Triple E.D., is focused on everyday activities in extreme environments.

In his talk, Markus will take you to Mount Everest and provide insights about the dangers of being bored, how commercial expeditions mitigate these risks and how any organisation may improve their business by learning from the insights gained in a setting where failure is not an option.

The Future of Work II

For #CRESUM18 we have decided to continue in the direction we took last year and look deeper into the questions concerning the part of our lives where we spend most of our time awake, our work.

We will ask questions and hopefully provide answers.

Why is it that as little as one out of ten people are actually engaged in their job? Is it leadership or the workplace that create this or something else?

How does the ever increasing role of AI and robots impact us as humans? What are the creative opportunities, what new skills do we need and will there even be jobs for all of us?

To find answers to these questions and more, we have invited a number of speakers with expertise in these areas to share their stories.

Welcome to #CRESUM18.
