"The environment changes around our business are accelerating.  Unexpected competitions have emerged.  We need some different, breakthrough approaches.  But what does breakthrough concretely mean?  And how can we implement such approaches? What does breakthrough concretely mean for our organizations, teams, and ourselves as leaders?"

On this evening, two IMD professors will offer a joint session.
