Event description



In the classical industrial paradigm, big leaps in corporate performance of more than 100% per year have been very unusual. Nowadays, in our hyper connected and dynamic world, for more and more organizations exponential growth rates have become the new normal.

That growth is only possible due to high complexity and non-linear interdependency, so that it is too much for analogue management in the old school way. Only smart digital solutions in a new patterns can keep up.

The GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple) have become the fifth largest economy after the USA, China, Japan and Germany with 900,000 employees only. With over 3 trillion market cap, their EBITA is larger than Austria’s GDP. Out-performing the rest of the world with less than 1 million employees is unprecedented in human history.

Out-performing the rest of the world with less than half of the population of Vienna, is never done or known before in human history. How is that possible? How can this be useful for other organisations? What is the impact on your leadership and management?

If you are intrigued by disrupting the economy and creating the future paradigm, join us at the:


At the 1492 Collective Intelligence Summit, we will share with you several use cases of technology enhanced behavioral transformation based on the wisdom of crowds. We will discuss the critical success factors how CI-algorithms in combination with AI in the future will disrupt the world of management systems. And you will have many opportunities to network and interact with diverse, high-level professionals and experts coming from industry, public services and the private equity sector. This includes our prestigious guest speakers, Professor Sandy Pentland from MIT, and Dr. Dean Radin from the Institute of Noetic Sciences, who are significantly impacting bottom-line performance and creating new futures globally.

  • Resonance for cultural change – how to shake up large systems

  • Algorithmic decision making – how to make better decisions faster

  • Data driven business models – how to qualify for the end game

We are looking forward to meeting you and growing our network together.

Let’s go beyond.

Session 1: Resonance for cultural change – how to shake up large systems

  • Are you agile enough? Do you dare to make corporate experiments to learn? Do you share the same high-performance values? Do you trust each other? These questions need a hearty yes for lasting success in the new paradigm.
  • Corporate culture is the fundamental asset of any modern organization. Without the right corporate “operating system” no organizational evolution for the better is possible.
  • Learn and discuss how to engage your employees in cultural change driven by 1492 tool. Based on technology collective intelligence, you can find the neural hot spots and topics of your organization for maximum effect with minimal effort.

Session 2: Algorithmic decision making – how to make better decisions faster

  • Usually organizations are aware of time as a critical resource for the right value-to-market and time-to-market. Nevertheless, the speed of decision-making in large corporations is way to slow in our fast-paced environment.
  • Additionally, the speed of implementation is even slower. So decisions are not executed and are constantly under revision.
  • Learn and discuss how to speed up your corporate decision-making digitally, combining the wisdom of crowds, decentral empowerment, and smart algorithms.

Session 3: Data driven business models – how to qualify for the end game

  • Don't ask your customers what they want. Know what they want. When, where and how much they want it. And how much they are willing to pay for it.
  • All successful platform businesses have the big advantage that they know their customers, aggregating data to predict purchase behaviour.
  • Learn and discuss how you can use internal and external data to improve or change your business model and your value chain.

Session 4: Corporate consciousness enhancement – how to evolve leadership

  • All artificial intelligence and algorithms will fail if leadership and top-management are not at the top of their game. It takes tremendous resilience to keep a cool head, still trust your gut feelings and carefully watch over the purpose of your business without losing focus.
  • Individual mindfulness and collective consciousness need to go together for ground-breaking organizational performance. Based on the latest neuro-scientific research, this will propel collaboration and co-creation in your teams dramatically.
  • Learn and discuss how to upgrade personal and collective emotional intelligence for more torque in your workforce.
