Evening Event with Silicon Vikings
Disruptive Corporate Innovation in a Post-Lean Era
The SF Vault, San Francisco
September 26, 2017, 6pm-8pm
In this event we will look more closely at how exponential technologies are resulting in a cycle of disruption transforming organizations and industries around the world. What are the precise mechanisms at work? Can industry disruption be systematized and made predictable? Post-Lean is a concerted attempt to connect many dots and provide a roadmap for systematic industry disruption.
Some of the issues/questions we may explore include the following:
- What lies behind the technology disruption we are seeing everywhere?
- How can executives and investors better detect disruption risks and opportunities?
- How can leaders proactively develop strategies to exploit technology disruption?
- Are new organizational structures needed in order to innovate faster?
- What are the human resource implications of the emerging changes?
- How can corporate leaders acquire and retain the innovation talent needed to prepare for the new era?
- How will career models change and (how) can corporations adapt to these changes?
- What are the implications for organizational cultures and leaderships styles?
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.
Panelists who will address a range of issues around disruption in practice:
- Frode Odegard, Founder, Post-Lean Institute
- Hiroshi Saijo, CEO and Managing Director, Yamaha Motor Ventures & Laboratories
- Paul Campbell, VP Innovation/Head of Silicon Valley Innovation Center for WL Gore & Assoc
