Foster the agility and adaptability to thrive amidst disruptive forces

While we’ve always lived in a VUCA world – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous – these tendencies are a bit more pronounced than in the past, with the speed of disruption exceeding anything seen before. New entrants are pushing innovative products or services onto the market and leveraging novel business models to disrupt entire industries. Many of these new players no longer own assets but instead leverage existing assets and capture value from data and from controlling the customer interface.

Despite their significant market dominance and availability of resources, established businesses are increasingly uncertain about the future and struggle to adjust to this new reality. As a result, many have missed out on new growth opportunities because of their inability to match the speed of execution of new entrants. They realize they need to anticipate disruption and understand emerging technologies that may impact their business before it is too late.

But how to do so? It requires VUCA leadership – Vision, Understanding, Clarity, and Agility – all of which are essential for a novel and entrepreneurial organization. The fundamental question is, how can established firms adopt entrepreneurial thinking and acting? 

Speaker

Peter Vogel, IMD Professor of Family Business and Entrepreneurship

"Despite their market dominance and abundance of resources, established businesses are increasingly uncertain about their future, and are struggling to adapt to the new reality of disruption. Many have missed out on growth opportunities, as they fail to match the speed of execution of new entrants. If they want to stay alive, and relevant, they need to actively address these issues before it is too late. The best way to do so is by leveraging the collective, creative intelligence of their employees and network partners by fostering entrepreneurial thinking and acting, ensuring that they disrupt themselves before someone else does."
