Corporate Leadership in the Age of Acceleration

Featuring Maureen Ehrenberg, JLL; Srini Khandavilli, Intel and Jared Summers, ExxonMobil

Corporate and commercial real estate comprises a large portion of the world’s economy and includes every industry, from financial services to healthcare. While some forward-thinking companies are in the news showcasing new technologies, for many others, their sheer size, age, and organizational complexity may make them immune to the dynamism of the marketplace. As new technology opportunities continue to develop, strong corporate leadership is required for successful digital transformation. Ehrenberg, Khandavilli and Summers share insights on trends they see impacting CRE over the next few years:

Ehrenberg: “Organizations must achieve that balance between using less space, being efficient and effective, flexible, agile – while keeping the human element intact and thriving.”

Khandavilli: “The key trend is continuing the integration of building and enterprise data… the marriage of these two will lead to deeper functional insights and enhance how we manage buildings.”

Summers: “AI and machine learning’s potential is transformational… the new model will require a shift in how companies manage real estate groups as skills required to maintain these models may not yet have on hand.”
