    Welcome to the Supply Chain Finance collaborative arena

    FREE
    Collaborations between banks, technology providers, trade associations, logistics providers and fintech companies are multiplying, new technologies are spreading, such as Blockchain, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence and the use of innovative solutions is gaining in strength. In Italy, Supply Chain Finance - the set of working capital financing solutions that can leverage the role of companies within the supply chain - is now a well-established ecosystem that involves many players, offers concrete opportunities for financing companies and is also becoming accessible to SMBs.

    Artificial Intelligence: on your marks!

    €190.00
    +vat
    The Artificial Intelligence market in Italy is still in the starting blocks: among the companies who say they have undertaken AI initiatives, only a minority say that at least one AI project is fully operational. AI thus remains an area of untapped potential, marked by low levels of knowledge of the topic and its promise.

    People 4.0: staying ahead to avoid falling behind

    €190.00
    +vat
    HR Management is increasingly aware of the ongoing digital transformation and yet there is a frequent lack of structured strategies to sustain this change, strategies formulated by building on the business plan, in order to develop skills, roles and leadership styles (People Strategy). The road still seems long, and challenging times await HR Management over the next few years: to help people adapt to a professional world which is changing as fast as digital technology itself.

    Artificial Intelligence: Perspectives from research to market

    €190.00
    +vat
    The term Artificial Intelligence was coined over 60 years ago, but the topic has never been so hot. Yet, the lines are still blurred between the applications available on the market, the areas that most research centres – both public and private – are concentrating on, and in some cases, science fiction.

    Building an organisation for the future starting from people: the role of the HR Department in digital transformation

    €190.00
    +vat
    Digital transformation is entering into every area of people’s lives, changing how we live, learn, work and interact. It is a proper revolution, where digital innovation is calling the shots, changing the rules of the workplace and provoking an increasingly burning debate about their medium-long term implications for employment. The events taking place can be seen as a perfect storm, a driving force that is compelling organisations to innovate by putting practices and processes into discussion. The function of the HR Director is evolving within this landscape, taking on the increasingly important role of enabling the development and sourcing of key skills for organisations (digital or not) and of guiding the process of change.

How does a company choose the best solution for their suppliers? Which are the different sources of information that need to be taken into account when implementing a SCF solution?

    Overview of Digital Innovation in Retail: in search of value

    €110.00
    +vat
    Retailers face a series of challenges. On the one side, Italian consumers are ever more digitally aware, on the other increasingly burdensome management of back-end processes, due in part to the greater range on offer and in part to the shorter average life-cycle of the products. In this complex and constantly evolving scenario, digital innovation can help retailers to respond more effectively to consumer requirements and design processes that are more efficient.

The talent management journey is an assessment framework used by HR Management to evaluate the “as is” positioning with regards to these four levers and then to define the possible roadmap for advancement and innovation within the processes involving the development of human resources.
