Embracing the New Corporate Facts of Life
It takes extraordinary vision to see around the bend in an uncertain world where change happens at such breakneck speed. To obtain such vision, smart leaders must first recognize the irresistible forces rendering conventional business rules obsolete. Disruptive innovation, economic instability, environmental degradation, stakeholder power and more bring unprecedented challenges for business and society, and great opportunities for growth.
Diana Rivenburgh will describe how forward-thinking organizations, from global giants to the latest start-ups, view these as tailwinds propelling them into profitable markets while solving some of the most challenging problems of our time. These bold leaders move beyond today’s best practices to develop tomorrow’s next practices. In this interactive presentation, she will prompt you to think about how these forces influence your business model and how to open your mind and tap into your stakeholders and resources to surface exciting new possibilities
