CPA Innovation Summit - Connect - Collaborate - Innovate via Planned Serendipity

Published on

There is an innovation imperative as we emerge from the great recession and shift our focus to growth. There is also another shift happening we cal the shift change as the largest generation in history begins to retire and hand over the reigns to a new generation. This shift is against the backdrop of five fundamental shifts in leadership, learning, technology, generations and the workplace itself.

The MACPA CPA Innovation Summit is an attempt to bring those leading the changes in the CPA profession together with our members to connect, collaborate and innovate. With the use of leading technology tools to support engagement and collaboration. Our hope is to create an environment of planned serendipity in a way that the act of simply registering for this event will put CPAs in the place of best opportunity in order to open doors into the developments that will ultimately transform careers and the way CPAs work.

Special thanks to our sponsors and strategic partners for making this possible - Sage, CCH Wolters Kluwer, CPA.COM, Tallie, XERO, ZOHO, Intaact, Bill.com, and ThinkTank, Conferences.io for helping us shape serendipity for Maryland CPAs and beyond.

  1. Innovation Connection Collaboration
  2. Innovation Connection Collaboration Serendipity
  3. Innovation is the creation of new forms of value in anticipation of future trends
  4. "Serendipity is the faculty of finding things we did not know we were looking for."
  5. We  need  to  find  ways  to  a-ract  relevant  innovators  and  edge   par5cipants  so  that  we  can  discover  early  windows  into  the   developments  that  will  end  up  transforming  how  we  live  and   work.  Sure,  serendipity  has  always  been  important,  but  in  a   world  of  near-­‐constant  disrup5on,  it  becomes  essen5al  to   survival.  –  Planned  Serendipity  by  Deloi-e  
  6. Connection #MDSUMMIT
  7.   CEOs  have  a  new  strategy  in  the  unending  war  for  talent.   They  are  crea5ng  more  open  and  collabora5ve  cultures   —  encouraging  employees  to  connect,  learn  from  each   other  and  thrive  in  a  world  of  rapid  change.       Collabora5on  is  the  number-­‐one  trait  CEOs  are  seeking   in  their  employees.  –  IBM  Global  CEO  Study  2012  
  8. The  collaboration curve  is  replacing   the  experience  curve   “The organizations that will become the household names of this century will be renowned for sustained, large-scale, efficient innovation. The key to that capability is neither company loyalty nor free- agent autonomy but, rather, a strong collaborative community.” HBR, July-August 2011
