Strategy@Work 2019

Transformation for a shared future

Every organization is eager to find an edge to flourish and sustain its success for as long as it can envision. Leaders aspire to transform innovative ideas into reality. They foster prosperous growth beyond their organizations.

The world is striving for a shared future that is inclusive and sustainable. Such as future calls for a new era of strategy. It calls for a fresh generation of strategists that build a new roadmap of transformation for the new age.

A new era of strategy brings many intricate problems with no easy way to solve them. Leaders across business and policy will gather at the Strategy@Work conference to shed light on some of the most urgent and important issues of our time:

How should organizations ensure sustained investment in exponential technologies and talent development? And how can organizations engage their talent pool? How can they engage and motivate their employees to ensure organizational vitality in the midst of transformation?

How do leaders create a sense of urgency for change and bring everyone together to transform?

What are the key roadblocks and untapped opportunities in cultivating a collaborative culture? How can people get things done, even in times of crisis and under constant change?

Be a part of how organizations shape and transform their shared future together.


More speakers to be announced soon.

Why your transformation can not possibly happen?

Deciding to transform an organization without a clear understanding of its culture is a request for failure. Organizational cultures are powerful; they can contribute to the success of one’s transformation, can slow down one’s transformational progress, or even turn the dreamed future state unviable. This panel will discuss why a relatively undervalued topic is becoming a central Board of Directors conversation.
