November 2018 (Date pending)
In this event we will discuss the nature of the post-industrial transition and how it represents both a a threat and an opportunity for corporates. Mainstream corporate innovation efforts today are cautious, slow and struggle with talent retention and cultural resistance to change. We will also introduce Post-Lean Thinking, an effort to develop a post-industrial management science and and practical tools that corporates and investors can use to navigate the transition.
Some of the issues/questions we may explore include the following:
- What lies behind the technology disruption we are seeing everywhere?
- How can we map and understand the way industries are being reshaped?
- How can leaders proactively develop strategies to exploit technology disruption?
- Are new organizational structures needed in order to innovate faster?
- What are the cultural and leadership implications of the emerging changes?
- How can corporate leaders acquire and retain the innovation talent they need?
- How will career models change and how can corporations adapt to these changes?
- What will boards need to do in order to stay on top of all this?
- How will the nature of firms change?
Frode Odegard, the founder of the Post-Lean Institute, will introduce new management thinking for the post-industrial transition we are going through, and discuss what this transition means for corporations, investors, careers and society as a whole. We will also hear from a distinguished panel of experts who will share their own insights from a variety of industry, regional and personal perspectives.
