The F1 partnership driving tomorrow’s world

Monday 12 February 2018

The story of how two of the world’s leading organisations are working together to revolutionise everything from Formula One to healthcare is the subject of this year’s Mark Bailey lecture to be delivered by Mike Dobby (OL83).

Mike will talk from first-hand experience of the new collaboration between McLaren Applied Technologies, the advanced technology, innovation and design company, and Deloitte to build data-driven business products.

Mike, who is vice-chairman and senior consulting partner in Deloitte, will describe how a ground-breaking partnership with McLaren is bridging the ‘physical to digital’ divide by helping organisations make sense of data.

He said: “The business of F1 is uncertain and rapidly changing.  We must compete for the future.  We don’t just measure what is unfolding in the race now, or simply look back at what has happened in the past. Instead we create hundreds of thousands of alternate realities – every second of every race – to guide us towards the best available result.

“And when we take this power from the track into the race for organisational performance, the advantages are innumerable – from improving traffic congestion and accident response time in complex transport networks to raising quality and compliance in manufacturing supply chains and live outpatient monitoring and treatment in healthcare.”

Mike has been a partner with Deloitte for over 18 years, and focuses on the technology, media and telecommunications sector. His expertise in organisational design, business transformation and business process improvement has seen him deliver some of the company’s largest transformation projects.

He will deliver the 2018 Mark Bailey lecture at The Grammar School at Leeds on Thursday 19 April. Tickets are free: please book your place here
