Abstracts invited for  September 15th IADC DEC Tech Forum “Transformation in Leadership”

As the market and workforce evolve, the way that companies lead their wells operations is transforming. In this forum, we will explore current trends, the next-generation workforce and drivers that are changing the industry’s operational leadership structure and approach, as well as discuss best practices for adaptive and transformative leadership. Transformational leadership serves to enhance the motivation, morale and job performance of the workforce through a variety of mechanisms, which allows the leader to align teams with tasks that enhance overall performance. We will also discuss how the industry can more effectively come together to standardize best practices while scaling up innovative ideas that can enhance safety and performance of wells delivery. Topics for discussion will include:

  • How are the roles and responsibilities of various wells leadership positions changing?
  • How does increased automation affect the risk picture and overall leadership decision making?
  • How is decision making changing with new automated systems, and the integration of drilling data with the beginning of machine learning for trend recognition and enhanced decision making?
  • How can we do a better job of communicating internally between disciplines (drilling, completion, production, reservoir, geology, etc.)?

Currently, the plan is to hold this event on the morning of Tuesday, September 15th, at National Oilwell Varco, 10353 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77042, and to offer an online broadcast for those who cannot attend in person. IADC will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and make changes to these plans as needed.

The deadline for abstracts is Friday, August 7th.
