Let your voice be heard

Faculty of Business and Management Sciences in collaboration with the Alumni Office recently hosted its annual Diversity Seminar on the Cape Town Campus.

Delegates at the recent International Conference on Business and Management Dynamics deliberated on how digital technology can be used to sustain economies.

The two-day conference was hosted by CPUT’s Faculty of Business and Management Sciences this week under the theme: Sustainable economies in the information economy.

Prof Ron Weber, Emeritus Professor at Monash University and one of the conference’s keynote speakers, said he saw the invitation as an opportunity to discuss the issue of sustainability of the information economy.

Weber suggested some strategies for designing good digital resources, decoupling of subsystems and the developing of resilient subsystems to enable them to deal with perverse outcomes.

He encouraged designers to use more renewable energy to power digital resources, design more energy-efficient resources and build digital assets with renewable resources.

He called for an increased use of IT standards as well as the recruitment of more highly trained IT workforce.

Dr Michael Twum-Darko, the conference’s Convener, said the conference was a product of years of planning as the CPUT’s Graduate Centre for Management is in the process of reinventing their journal which was last published in 2009.

“The advent of digital technology makes it difficult to manage the economy in the old way in which we did before,” added Twum-Darko.

Prof Dina Burger, CPUT’s Director of Research, congratulated the organizing team with the excellent choice of the conference’s theme and the world-class keynote speakers.

“At CPUT we are dedicating ourselves to the careers of our academics to assist them to become frontrunners in the generation of high impact research solutions to industries,” said Burger.

Delegates attending the 4th Leadership and Management in Projects-driven Industries in South Africa (LAMIPISA 2016) Conference were urged to not only diagnose the challenges facing the continent but also devise strategies to fix them.
