The Next Horizon – Your Playbook to Compete and Win in the Digital Era
From his forthcoming book and research “The Next Horizon – Leadership, Culture, Strategy and Technology to Succeed in Your Digital Transformation”, management advisor and former Amazon executive John Rossman outlines the surprising secrets and shortcuts tying together his 30 years of helping companies compete and win in the digital era. “Think Big…But Don’t Bet Big”, “Shrink the change through communications”, “Avoid asking the right question … at the wrong time” are just some of the inspiring ways we can all change our own leadership styles to achieve the business success our digital transformation has promised.

Never Waste a Good Crisis- The Winning Playbook for Market Volatility
Your supply prices are rising, your employee wages are increasing, transportation is getting more expensive, and key components (like chips) might be in short supply. Your COGS and your P&L are a mess. What do we do? We are all aware of and impacted by inflation, supply chain disruptions, political unrest, pandemics, wars, and market volatility. Count on this - the challenges only get harder. The question is, what is the playbook for not only surviving but thriving in a volatile market? Is it even possible? How do we not waste a good crisis?

In this keynote, internationally sought-after strategy, operations, and digital transformation advisor and former Amazon Executive, John Rossman, shows why by challenging traditional thinking and management science you maximize the value of a good crisis and work to strengthen your business. Volatile markets and uncertainty lead most organizations to cut, run and stick their head in the sand until the storm passes. Rossman will show you how it is the ideal time to go on offense. Instead of crawling into a figurative fetal position and just accepting the difficult circumstances, put your “invention” hat on and double down on finding immediate ROI opportunities to improve operational effectiveness. Rossman outlines a playbook giving audience members hope that they can increase market share during volatility and proven methods of making the most important innovations during uncertainty. Audience members leave with practical theory, examples, tools, and techniques to help them build better strategies, better plans, and better solutions so they won’t waste a good crisis.
