Topics

The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model To Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results

Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.

With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.

Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted — thus creating competitive advantage, and reducing risk.

Key Takeaways:

This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organization’s growth and their personal success. Other notable deliverables include:

  • Identify the Hard Trends that will happen, predict disruptions before they disrupt, and capitalize on emerging opportunities;
  • Separate Hard Trends—trends that will happen—from Soft Trends—trends that might happen;
  • Learn the benefits of Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities;
  • Accelerate your organization’s growth and your employee’s personal success.

Accelerating Growth: Leading with Strategic Foresight & Certainty

Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities. All too often, change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react by slipping into a crisis management mode, and putting out fires. This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future.

Key Takeaways:
