After a successful World Business Forum Sydney in 2014, 2015 and 2016, we are happy to bring you this next chapter for WBF Sydney at The Event Centre, The Star on 31 May - 1 June 2017.
In 2017 the World Business Forum will highlight that in a world where new technologies emerge at pace, those who anticipate change and are quickly able to adapt will flourish. Organisations and individuals alike must reinvent themselves constantly; experiment and learn; identify new opportunities, exploit them fast, and move on. In this world it is the entrepreneur, the experimenter, the risk taker who will thrive.
Long term competitive advantage is dead! Are you ready to live in a state of permanent BETA?
Agile Innovation: How to Move Faster, Learn Cheaply and Collaborate Better
In a world where disruption is accelerating and markets are evolving rapidly, innovation is the only sustainable competitive advantage. But innovation also needs to be innovated upon. The classical innovation approach that relies on deliberate planning and “getting it right the first time” is no longer viable. The innovation process in a dynamic business environment needs to be accelerated and it needs to be more adaptable. This is Agile Innovation – an innovation culture that embraces experimentation, an innovation process that consists of rapid iterative learning and an innovation organisation that relies on collaboration inside and outside the company. We will outline the principles of Agile Innovation and examine its key building blocks – from culture and mindset to process and execution to organisation and people. We will learn from the leaders in Agile Innovation in a variety of industries and markets. We will conclude with a clear call to action for business leaders to transform their companies into Agile Innovators.
