Your ability to cope with, adapt to and lead through increasingly disruptive change is the key differentiator for successful managers in the coming decade.  At the same time, the ability to think with a future orientation is one of the rarest management skills.  We are facing a world where the pace of disruptive change is accelerating, driven by large societal megatrends such as changing demographics, rapid urbanization, big data, the rise of peer-to-peer platforms, technological innovation, artificial intelligence and the advent of the blockchain.

Learn how to construct future scenarios and to create strategies that are resilient. Discover how to position yourself and your organization to successfully interpret, predict and navigate the disruptive change over the next 15 to 20 years that will have a profound effect on society and your organization.
