Rapid advances in AI, ML, IoT, cognitive computing, cloud, and other technologies are sparking wholesale change in how businesses organize and compete. Be it to solve old problems better and faster; recast processes, products and services; or design new business models and create markets, transformation has become a necessary part of business strategy conversations.
Although there are companies with remarkable stories of transformation—Amazon from retail to cloud, Google from advertising to driverless cars—we’re truly only beginning to understand the implications and opportunities. One study suggests that 75% of the S&P 500 will turn over in the next 15 years. Another says that one in three companies will delist in the next five years. New ways of thinking and levels of agility are implicated for everything from leadership, to workforce and culture development, to business models, processes, and tools.
Come and hear what’s top of mind for the year ahead from experts who live and breathe transformation as a way of business life: Donna Kimmel, the chief people officer of a $3B cloud and security software company focused on digital workforce enablement; Mark Johnson, author and co-founder with HBS Professor Clayton Christensen of a global growth strategy consulting firm; and Wes Wright, chief technology officer of a large, not-for-profit health system. All attendees will receive a copy of the acclaimed new book, Dual Transformation: How to Reposition Today’s Business While Creating the Future.
