Thought Leaders 2019

Hack
Shape
Innovate

What does the future of management and leadership look like?

The future isn’t ours to predict or control. It’s ours to design and innovate. But only if we have the ability to navigate increasing uncertainty and complexity – and discover what customers and colleagues truly value through fast prototyping and experimentation.

This new reality has given birth to the Lean Startup movement, spearheaded by entrepreneur, blogger and international best-selling author Eric Ries. And we are incredibly excited to announce that Eric Ries will join us at the Implement Thought Leaders event in Copenhagen on 12 April 2019, which will be livestreamed directly to selected business schools and universities throughout Scandinavia.

What do you look for in future organisations? It's time for organisations to listen and learn.

Eric Ries will discuss the realities facing organisations today and explore what mindsets need changing and which actions need taking in order to create the organisations of the future. Our aim is to draw on the input and inspiration from Eric Ries to hack and ideate new concepts, the next generation of management and new ways of working. Teams of Implement consultants will facilitate collaborative workshops where students will work with selected strategic challenges and explore how to fast-forward change and impact for customers, partners and employees – and become even better at designing the future.

The idea

This is an opportunity for students, teachers and universities to learn directly from one of the world’s most recognised thought leaders within entrepreneurship, Eric Ries. After a short introduction, we’ll watch a livestream direct from DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen where Eric Ries will discuss the realities facing organisations today and explore what mindsets need changing and which actions need taking in order to create the organisations of the future. Following that, a team of Implement consultants will facilitate a collaborative workshop where you will get the chance to hack future business realities.
