Skip to 0 minutes and 3 secondsWelcome to Week 4 of the course. This week, we are switching our viewpoint. In the first week, we had a broad societal approach, so we were looking at technology at the level of the world humanity society and so on. In the past two weeks, we adopted an individual perspective. So we were focusing on your interaction with the technology and your relationship with the technology. This week, we are focusing on the organisation as a whole. This means that we are looking at organisation on one side, technology on the other side.

Skip to 0 minutes and 37 secondsAnd we will try to figure out whether we use technology to enable our organisation to achieve its goals, whether it is working against our goals, whether we are making good use of it forwarding on our part, or whether we are sometimes maybe even following technology. So we find some new technological advancements, which we like, and the organisation goes that way forward. What we also doing this week, it is that we will have a look at how technology developed over the time. So where we were the day before yesterday, yesterday, where we are today, and you will see that very often where most organisations would classify as yesterday.

Skip to 1 minute and 22 secondsAnd then, of course, we think a little bit forward about where technology will be tomorrow and where our organisation will be tomorrow together with this technology.
