Keynote for the Boomer Technology Summit 2014. The Shift Change describes the five major "shifts" business is making in response to the perfect storm of the three mega-trends - technology, demographics, globalization.
Using the two-curves framework from the Institute for the Future as inspiration, Tom has applied the transformational change to the signals and trends happening in the marketplace today.
The challenge is to determine if and when you should lead your organization through the shift change, keeping in mind the risk of doing nothing or the RONI - return on not investing.
The key to thriving during the shift change is ROP - return on people and the #1 skill needed is collaboration.
In order to get your ROP, you need a systematic and strategic approach to your talent development which is exemplified in a training framework from the Business Learning Institute called the Bounce.
The Bounce covers the career trajectory of professionals as they move from technical proficiency to managing people and projects and ultimately organizations. The bounce speaks to the change in direction from technical mastery to acquiring competencies to lead others and leading organizations. It is about velocity and trajectory as you shift direction to the need for more “success skills” as you move up n your career. The Bounce includes the latest research on competencies from the AICPA through the CPA Horizons 2025 Project and the CGMA Competency framework.
It concludes with the five ways to thrive in the shift change: 1) Purpose and Vision, People, Collaboration and Engagement, Strategy & Alignment, Technology and RONI.
