The Deadly Sins of Business Transformation

2018 | October 25

How does an organization innovate when markets are transforming? Innovation is usually considered the instrument to transform organizations and markets when actually identifying transformed markets ahead and then using innovation as an instrument is more appropriate. Yet many leaders see digital, blockchain, artificial intelligence as keys to change. Mohan brings a fresh perspective to transformation. His keynote will connect personal and business transformation in a unique and memorable way. He believes that companies lose their personality before they lose their way. Based on 10 years of research and a book, Mohan will explore the power of uncovering market shifts long before they happen and how to act on them.
