Take 2: Solving the Now – Navigating Transformation (A)
Choose from a selection of small-group brainstorming workshops which will take place in atypical environments to disrupt business-as-usual thinking, powered by wavespace and guided by experienced moderators and key thought-leaders.
1. Key success factors and key barriers to overcome in transformation
Business transformation is more important than ever now that we’re in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are becoming ever more blurred. But 70 percent of digital transformations fail. Why? It’s not due to innovation or technological problems. Rather, the devil is in the details: a lack of clear goals and a disciplined process for achieving them. We will explore the critical factors causing digital transformation programs to fail, along with tactics and solutions to drive success and overcome hurdles.
2. A transformational mindset
The leadership skills and mindset to drive successful transformation
Tomorrow’s transformation leaders need to inspire their workforce and stakeholders, lead with confidence and address global challenges that lie beyond the organization, but undoubtedly have a profound impact on it. What skills do I need to navigate transformation? What impact will it have? How can it propel my confidence as a leader?
3. Megatrends to Innovation
Leveraging EY’s Future-Back methodology to drive corporate transformation and innovation 
Learn tools and ways of thinking to help you and your executive teams to open the field of view to the future and use it to drive immediate breakthroughs in strategy and innovation today. How to source megatrends and consolidate multiple and complex views of the future into a practical frame of reference for setting business strategy and driving innovation? How to engage executive teams in internalizing and confronting future disruptions and using that to drive tactical action today: prioritizing portfolios, innovation programs, operations rationalization? How to bring in the Silicon Valley duality type of mindset and capability of simultaneously seeing a big and disruptive future while delivering through tactical and focused actions today?
4. New Business-Model Creation
From theory to action
In an ever-competitive market, innovative business models are changing the world as we know it. Consumer behavior and technology continue to drive disruption across the value chain of any business creating new opportunities and risks. Learn how companies creating new business models through technology and ecosystems thrive in the new digital economy.
5. Technology, Data and Ethics
The trust factor
Public trust in institutions, including corporations, has dropped sharply over the past decade. The recent struggles of high-profile organizations have illustrated how easily trust can be lost and how difficult it is to earn back. This workshop focuses on how companies can ensure innovation is consistent with the organization and stakeholders’ values. Anticipating the unexpected implications of new tools, and of working with new advocates, customers and partners will be key to building and maintaining trust. Are social media platforms responsible for challenges to contemporary democracy? What are the ethical issues with automation in the workforce? How can companies innovating with technology mitigate against negative impacts? Does AI reinforce existing social inequalities? Whose responsibility is it to address ethical issues with new technologies?
6. Leveraging AI to advance the diversity and inclusiveness agenda
To reap the many potential rewards of artificial intelligence (AI), mitigate its risk, and make it trustworthy, we need to remove any inbuilt bias. How can AI be used to identify existing biases in the company? How can we build unbiased AI? Whose responsibility is it to ensure that bias is, and remains, removed from the development and application of AI?
7. How can you beat start-ups at their own game?

The quickest way to become irrelevant is to hand over your legacy to start-ups and entrepreneurs. This leaves businesses with two choices: mimic them or join them. The first requires you to become an intrapreneur, the second to team up with the new and emerging businesses on the scene. One thing is clear, standing still could lead to your most important talent jumping ship and starting their own new kid on the block. In this session, you’ll learn how to create business strategies that will propel you into the future and stake out new territory, strategies that harness the power of the legacy business, systems, processes and products that you have worked so hard to create. In a world of unprecedented change, established businesses must find a way to capture the same spark of brilliance that start-ups use to break new ground. Delay, and you may just become obsolete.

8. How business transformation is saving a million years of life
Hear how GenesisCare has transformed their business to expand globally, increased patient access to cancer care across the world, and saved a combined million years of life. Alison Tweedale, GenesisCare’s General Manager of Transformation, talks about how the Monarch Program has resulted in much more than just butterflies.

Take 3 - Solving the Now – Navigating Transformation (B)
Choose from a selection of small-group brainstorming workshops which will take place in atypical environments to disrupt business-as-usual thinking, powered by wavespace and guided by experienced moderators and key thought-leaders.
1. The Global Imperative
Key lessons in reverse innovation and capital structures to enable dynamic West-East and East-West activation 
Global organizations recognize that successful innovation cannot be limited to one or two geographies. Organizations should have the ability to foster, drive and manage innovation globally. What are the key success factors for building a global innovation model and platform? How can you apply the outside-in approach to innovation around the globe? How can you implement reverse innovation in a global business?
2. The New Growth Imperative
Building and managing ecosystems
With the disappearance of traditional industry boundaries, the fast pace of technology development, the need for truly global innovation, and the expectation to deliver both short and long-term value, ecosystems are becoming a new growth imperative for every organization. What are the key ingredients in creating and managing an ecosystem? How do you collaborate within an ecosystem? How can you gain competitive advantage by operating an ecosystem?
3. Finding the right capabilities in a rapidly shifting environment
Technology, globalization, demography and an uncertain political and economic outlook are reshaping the content, structure and location of our work. The capabilities we need to respond to this are evolving so quickly that our historical approaches to workforce planning and learning are no longer fit for purpose. The challenge of identifying, securing and developing future capabilities is not insurmountable, but it is time to invest in more sophisticated approaches so we can define the changing roles and skills, the employment arrangements that will enable the workforce of the future, and how we will engage people in the emerging world of work.
4. Trusted Intelligence
The next frontier of our data-driven world
Creating value in a world of data and business intelligence requires trust. Trust must be earned with your customers, across your organization and within your ecosystem. How can you consistently embed trust across your intelligence value chain? What does it mean to be value first and not data first?
5. Exploring marketing and customer experience for a smarter connected journey
According to Forbes, only 8% of brands provide the experience consumers expect.  And it’s no surprise because we still have a long way to go to connect the dots across the full customer journey – from acquisition all the way through retention and loyalty. To innovate around experience requires us to challenge how we lead, the way we work, our technical architecture, and every friction point we can remove for the humans who engage with our brands. Data and technology empower us to create smarter experiences, which personalize and anticipate better than ever before to meet the ever-heightening bar of human expectations.
6. The Future of Cybersecurity
How the smartest companies are transforming their approach to this existential risk
As we have seen in recent years, a significant cyberattack can spread disruption far and wide. It does not just impact a single business; it can impact multiple businesses and their supply chains, as well as national and local government infrastructure. One reason why cyberthreats have become so dangerous is that they are increasingly interlinked with other major threats facing CEOs. In a politicized and activist environment, cyberthreats now closely link to some of the most daunting challenges the world wrestles-- including climate change, geopolitical instability and social inequality. Today’s session explores the link between increasing activism and cybersecurity through a simulated cyber war game, allowing participants to experience and respond to this quickly emerging threat.
7. Key imperatives in establishing and operating a corporate venture capital accelerator and incubator
8. Key success factors and key barriers to overcome in transformation

Imagine the Beyond: Plenary session - Is the Quantum Computing glass half empty or half full?
In a world hungry for computing power, quantum technologies promise a different computational paradigm to tackle some of humanity's hardest problems. Driven by the excitement for recent exceptional scientific advancements, quantum computing is in danger of becoming the conceptual panacea for every fundamental issue societies and businesses face today. While we have numerous reasons to be optimistic, as fueled by recent announcements, the quantum computing community must remain grounded and not lose sight of the challenges ahead. In this conversation, we will discuss the business landscape of quantum computing, the booming world of quantum startups, the business implications of quantum computing, the most innovative technologies and proposed use cases in an attempt to answer: Is the Quantum Computing glass half empty or half full?
