Strategic Agility: Leading Through Uncertainty

Today’s business environment is no longer described as having an “ebb and flow” but rather a permanent “whitewater” condition. This increased speed of change has caused a movement from discrete-event strategic planning to more dynamic planning. However, many organizations struggle with staying nimble to respond to rapid market changes because of a variety of factors. This session explores two common barriers to agility, provides tools to overcome these barriers, and describes best practices in building adaptability in strategic initiatives.

The Future of Transportation: Optimizing for People, Planet, and Profit

The CASE megatrends (connected, autonomous, shared/services, and electric) are massively disrupting the automotive and transportation industries. Companies and countries are scrambling to get up to speed on them before their competitors completely disrupt them. Right now, these trends are roughly at the same level of maturity as the web was in 1995. So where are these new digital technologies taking us? What is coming down the line, and how will these changes affect my organization, my wallet, and the planet? SAP Global VP, Futurist, and Innovation Evangelist Tom Raftery unpacks these forces to show how these megatrends are transforming the lives of individuals, enterprises, and the planet for the benefit of all.
