Session Info: Insights into the Invincible Organisation

In this seminar, Yves Pigneur outlines what is required from leaders and organisations to survive and thrive in today’s world. He describes how to design an innovation culture, innovation portfolios, while remaining world-class at managing the existing business.

He will introduce a new concept that helps companies visualise if they are ready for the future or if they should fear disruption. He will also briefly outline Business Model Patterns that allow established organisations and startups to compete on better business models rather than just compete on new products, technologies, and price.
