The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model To Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results

Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.

With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.

Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted — thus creating competitive advantage, and reducing risk.

Key Takeaways:

This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organization’s growth and their personal success. Other notable deliverables include:

  • Identify the Hard Trends that will happen, predict disruptions before they disrupt, and capitalize on emerging opportunities.
  • Separate Hard Trends—trends that will happen—from Soft Trends—trends that might happen
  • Learn the benefits of Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.
  • Accelerate your organization’s growth and your employee’s personal success.

This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future.

Key Takeaways:

This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees how to be prepared to capitalize on the next wave of technological change and:

Transforming Healthcare with Technology-Enabled Innovation

We are standing at the base of a mountain of technology-driven change within the sphere of Healthcare. Wireless telemedicine, point-of-care transactions, e-enabled disease management, home diagnostics, the virtual hospital, e-enabled customer choice, e-enabled assisted living, e-communities of practice, just-in-time training, and procurement service providers are just a few of the many areas that can be used to accelerate a positive transformation in healthcare.

Understanding the new opportunities that will result is essential in determining a clear course of action.

Technology will never replace doctors and nurses, but it will provide them with more data-driven insights and actions. A combination of data and technology will enable doctors to achieve their desired results faster, and empower patients with the knowledge of their own bodily state. Navigating these Hard Trends will lead you to the future of modern healthcare in a digital age.
