Blockchain & The C-Suite
The CEO and Strategy
Blockchain enterprise adoption is not as simple as switching out the old for new. CEOs and strategy officers need to undertake significant organizational change for the implementation and commercialization of blockchain systems, and manage their firms in a competitive market that requires inter-firm collaboration for successful adoption of the technology.
CIOs play an essential role in successful enterprise adoption, building on legacy systems and software and diffusing the technology across the firm as it affects all departments. Timing is important as well, not only in finding the right kind of talent, but creating and deploying this new system in a receptive environment.
Talent and Education
Blockchain has enabled a whole new set of tools for employers and educators. Soon, the implementation of microcredentialing capabilities, pay-as-you-learn funding models, and massively open online courses, plus the co-creation of open educational resources, will make the meta-university possible, affordable, and accessible for more students and employees worldwide. This will also make it easier for HR to verify employee credentials and vet applicants.
