"Dynamic, disruptive and systemic change is presenting businesses and organisations with extraordinary challenges that are economic, technological, societal and cultural all are conjoined and hence complex. How do today¹s organisations innovate to adapt in an uncertain world?
The world we live in today, without a doubt, could fittingly be described as Œthe last of the Kodak moments¹. Squeezing efficiency out of the old way of doing things will not build a brighter future. There is a growing realisation that we are faced with a pressing design challenge of Œwhat next¹ looks like for businesses and organisations; a need to upgrade to be able to belong to the extraordinary human evolution that points towards a more participatory, co-operative and regenerative model of our society."
