Transforming in a Disruptive World
The average life of an organization has been reduced by 50 years in the last 50 years. In the 1960s, it was 67 years; today, it is 17 years, and the impact of that 50-year difference is immense.
Leaders now need to be increasingly more aware of their strategic landscape, conscious of their business operating model and constantly thinking strategically. This dramatic change in business transformation is affected by artificial intelligence, algorithms, augmented and virtual reality, nanotechnology, and other new technologies. Many companies race to adopt digital transformation while others race to stay in business.
In this engaging and entertaining keynote, Robin Speculand shares what it takes to transform in a disruptive world by sharing the three broad themes for transformation and uncommon practices from successful leaders in a disruptive world.
