The Anticipatory Organization®: Leverage Hard Trends for Enhanced Strategic Planning, Rapid Innovation, and Transformational Outcomes

KEYNOTE DESCRIPTION (Customized for Each Audience)
The rapid acceleration of digital transformation and disruption has diminished the effectiveness of traditional planning and innovation strategies. Moreover, the mere existence of a plan doesn’t assure success! Let’s face it, every business in history that has failed or suffered a severe decline had a plan! Some plans were predicated on potential scenarios, some assumed current trends would persist, while others were fixed plans aimed at executing a consistent strategy over several years, regardless of exponential technological change.

Furthermore, Burrus will employ industry-specific examples to instruct attendees on how to elevate their strategic planning by distinguishing Hard Trends – which are based on inevitable future facts – from Soft Trends – which are based on assumptions of what might occur. This will enable them to pinpoint transformative opportunities to boost innovation and growth, while significantly reducing risk.

Using Burrus’ mastery of storytelling to illustrate examples, deliverables include:

Discover how organizations of diverse sizes have employed the Hard Trends methodology to stimulate both Everyday Innovation and Exponential Innovation, while significantly reducing associated risks.

Learn the strategy of Problem Skipping to expedite your organization’s growth and boost individual success among your team members.
Acquire the know-how to employ new AI tools effectively, reducing costs, increasing operational speed, and accelerating growth.
