Why Michael Hugos
- The pace of technical change and its resulting impacts on business, society and the environment call for a dramatically new context to make sense of what is happening. Merely examining each new trend, and discussing the next gee-whiz technology that appears on the scene provides few answers to the pressing challenges we face – such as finding jobs for millions of people entering the workforce each year and switching to renewable sources of energy and sustainable methods of production. Get a clear big picture context to appreciate the power and the possibilities opening up as new waves of technology build upon the ones that came before
- Everybody talks about being lean and agile, but nobody is certain about what it actually means. Get a clear understanding of what it means for companies and supply chains to be agile and responsive. See pragmatic examples for combining people, process and technology to achieve agility and deliver competitive advantage to your business.
- Explore the power of interactive simulations, virtual worlds and real-time feedback as tools to help people and companies find their way and thrive in a world that is increasingly volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous. It a world where technology is available to all, the ability to learn faster and make better decisions from moment to moment is the only sustainable path to success for companies and nations in this always-on world.
