Nexford University presents: How to thrive in an Age of Disruption
Guest Speaker: Rob Van Alphen - Founder, School of Disruption
“Any company designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st.” It used to take 20 years to make a billion-dollar company – Slack did it in 8 months.
An Exponential Organization (ExO) is one whose impact is 10X larger compared to its peers because of the use of new organizational techniques that leverage emerging technologies. We look at the key attributes of a 10X company and the steps to retrofit an organization for exponential growth.
This presentation will start with an intro on the emerging trends and technologies that are impacting life, business and society in the next 5–10–20 years. We'll talk about the impact on organizations as well as how to deal with such disruption. We'll end with a discussion on the 'skills of the future'.
