About the Talk & The Event: Man, Machine & Strategy: Don't Leave Change to Chance

To win, we must face a constantly changing competitive world and an ever-increasing customer, employee and investor expectations. To win, we must “stay relevant” and evolve, always. We must keep ahead and not just in pace with change. To win, we must innovate faster, execute faster, discover advantages faster, make decisions faster and change our business models and organizations faster. To win, we must go beyond agility, realize that all advantages are temporary and think, plan and act differently. To compete and thrive we must augment our capabilities and partner with machine, always. To win, we must avoid leaving change to chance.
