Geneva, Switzerland | May-14-2015

Every year thousands of aspiring graduates leave our business schools to become managers. But what was once a dream job is rapidly turning into an obsolete occupation. Managers are a dying breed.
The business environment has evidently changed – and it is further transforming at a speed never seen before. Yet most organizations are still trying to handle today’s challenges with yesterday’s tools to get them ready for tomorrow. There is no way around it: Companies need to radically rethink the way they are organized and run, if they want to stand a chance in the digital era.
Successful 21st-century enterprises are connected, transparent organizations that embrace lean | agile values and principles, where empowered and collaborative teams deliver co-created services to highly demanding customers. They are adamant believers in the essence, drive and passion of people. They engage inspiring leaders to ignite the people factor.
Join this session to: Get a glimpse of what to expect when working in a traditional business setting; discover the power of connected enterprises; learn more about what it takes to lead people in a world that no longer follows old rules; and hear how you can make a difference in a lean | agile environment and shape our future.
Are you ready to inspire greatness in people?
