IMD Taiwan Alumni Gathering

This event is completed.

Registration is now closed.
Date Monday, July 04, 2016
Time 19:00 - 21:00
Speaker(s) Cyril Bouquet, Professor of Strategy, IMD

We are approx. 300 IMD alumni in Taiwan and now have the opportunity to activate a valuable network – which benefits from interactions, discussions and the sharing that we could all do together. The objective of our IMD Alumni Association here is to provide platforms for continuous learning and opportunities to expand business relationships, while to increase the profile of IMD in Taiwan. This is done through events and the amount of activity that we’ll generate together.

Professor Cyril Bouquet will share a few insights around the innovative work he’s doing to help companies transform at IMD- and highlight a few characteristics of the innovator’s mindset.

We live and lead in a period of uncertainty and turmoil, with dramatic change occurring in the world in which we operate and compete. Companies must create the future and not simply hold on to those formulas that have allowed them to be successful in the past. We will discuss what this means for leaders of companies we work with at IMD. The future doesn’t happen automatically, leaders create it. But how? Research shows that leaders who successfully create new opportunities for the business do not constitute a special breed of people.  What is important is how they think and act – day in and day out.

•       Means: Entrepreneurs start with their means: who they are, what they know, and who they know. Then, they begin to imagine possibilities that originate from their means.

•       Affordable loss: They limit risk by understanding what they can afford to lose at each step, instead of seeking large all-or- nothing opportunities.

•       Partnerships: They build partnerships with interesting entities in the market rather than simply trying to compete with them.

•       Contingencies: Instead of making “what-if” scenarios to deal with worst-case scenarios, they interpret “bad” news and surprises as potential clues to innovate and create something new.
