Responsible strategies for business and society
ESMT Annual Forum
Thursday, June 22, 2017
Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin
In times of transition and disruption, organizations must learn to embrace change and move quickly. Agility is called for today at every level of business and across every industry. Lean management – based upon the principles used in software development and characterized by fewer hierarchies and the ability to respond swiftly – is more relevant than ever before.
The ESMT Annual Forum will examine the frameworks necessary to enable organizational flexibility, and thus increase innovation in business. What must managers do to face the challenges of an accelerating world in which century-old business models can become obsolete in less than a decade? What kind of leadership is called for to facilitate agility within the organization? Keynotes and panel discussion with international experts, decision makers, and academics will focus on these questions and more. Focused sessions will allow participants to engage with other leaders facing similar challenges and to debate strategies to ensure a competitive advantage in the future.
