During an action-packed three days, we’ll take you on a journey through exponential technologies, innovation, and leadership through a combination of lectures, hands-on learning, case studies, and peer networking.
We’ll start by helping you envision what impact exponential technologies could have on your industry and gain a perspective on how your organization can plan to adapt for future success using approaches such as SU's proven Design for Exponentials framework and science fiction as a forecasting tool.
Next, we’ll examine emerging capabilities, tools, skill sets, and concepts such as innovation outposts that you can put to work for your organization now. You’ll examine your strategy and organizational structure to ensure it supports effective innovation and identify opportunities for optimization so that you can seize the future before your competitors do.
Finally, we’ll examine the role of the future innovation leader and help you to create a roadmap for successfully navigating your organization and preparing it to become future-ready. You’ll emerge with the knowledge, confidence, and tools to prepare yourself to succeed in this future.
