"Organizing for the Future"

The forces of technology, demographics and globalization will dramatically disrupt the world of work.  The scope, scale and pace of disruption are fast eroding existing business models.  Companies have to constantly seek new ways of doing things to remain relevant to their customers.  To do that, companies and individuals have to anticipate the future, rise to meet these forces, and bend them towards the arc of opportunity. 

While disruptive forces may bring uncertainties for businesses, leaders could prepare their companies for the big trends that are unfolding rapidly across the globe.  Aside from keeping up with technology, they have to understand what impact these trends would have on employment, work, and learning.  In this talk, Dr Thomas Goh, Chief Client Officer, Center for Creative Leadership, a global top ranked executive education provider, will share practical insights on how companies and individuals could prepare for the new business realities and build competitive advantages for sustainable growth.
