Finding Disruption through Total Enterprise Reinvention

Total Enterprise Reinvention is a deliberate strategy that aims to set a new performance frontier for companies and in most cases, the industries in which they operate. Centered around a strong digital core, it helps drive growth and optimize operations.

Total Enterprise Reinvention isn’t a to do; it’s a to be. It requires continuous, dynamic reinvention. It becomes a unifying force across the C-suite and every function and business area, because, by definition, all are involved and accountable for its success. And it requires new skills and an increased depth of understanding of technology, change management, communication and how to leverage partners to achieve results faster.

Join us as we bring to life how Total Enterprise Reinvention can disrupt and drive operational excellence.

Sustainability + Disruption Breakout

As organizations navigate the macroeconomic disruptions and ever-changing realities of the economy, they can harness the power of sustainability to anticipate and adapt to changing market conditions, gain a competitive advantage, and create long-term value for stakeholders. By focusing on healthier, inclusive futures for all, companies secure their own futures while innovating for the good of the communities they serve.

Join this session for answers to key questions surrounding sustainability and disruption: How are innovation, long term organizational success, and sustainability linked? In what ways can an organization properly implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to drive innovation and transformation? How does a focus on sustainability give organizations a competitive edge?

Grassroots Total Enterprise Reinvention – how we can transform communities through SMBs

Startups are often agile and innovative with a high tolerance for risk, while incumbents have established brand recognition, resources, and customer relationships. By collaborating, startups can leverage the resources and scale of incumbents to accelerate their growth, while incumbents can tap into the innovative and disruptive ideas of startups to stay ahead of the competition. Together, the two can disrupt the status quo and transform the way organizations collaborate and operate for the better.

In this closing session, leaders will explore exciting questions about the future of startup and incumbent partnership: What does it take for successful collaboration? What is needed to facilitate true cohesion and collaboration? How can partnerships between startups and incumbents drive innovation for growth and opportunity?
