Program Description

The discussion of the future work has been in the spotlight, mostly associated with catastrophic predictions of massified unemployment, caused by the arrival of the “robots” and Artificial Intelligence. We can see that these analyses don’t talk about the essential points neither identify the action points that can help the executives of the organizations to look to the theme in a constructive way.

The program Business Automation for the Future of Work was conceived in a partnership between CATÓLICA-LISBON and EDP, the company that assumed a technical leadership position in the subject at an international level, with the goal to fit the discussion of the future work in the actual moment and, precisely, through an automation concrete technology, the Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

The program was structured in order to provide crucial knowledge so that managers can act in a solid way in the discussion process of RPA applicability to their organizations, to make the respective business case, to define the appropriate governance, and to know which are the main steps of implementation.
