The resilience and sustainability imperative: how to lead and be successful in times of uncertainty
The COVID-19 pandemic, disruption in global supply chains, geo-strategical and energy crisis and other unexpected events has globally affected all industrial sectors, pushing public and private institutions to adjust their business models, leadership and governance frameworks. In such an (unprecedented) turbulent scenario, companies of all sizes must be resilient and dynamically respond to find ways how to make their business models resilient and sustainable.
There are many challenges business world is facing in these uncertain times, like:
What are the best practices in ensuring stable and sustainable business through the uncertain times?
How successful organisations are adapting and responding to unexpected business events?
How to lead the business in a turbulent scenario? How to innovate, lead by example, disrupt the industry and create new value? What mechanisms and tools to use? What frameworks to follow? Are there any specific area to focus on (e.g. digitalisation, disruptive innovation, energy management, human capital, etc.)?
How leading companies implement strategic changes that are resulting in creating and delivering new value, even in a disruptive environment?
What are lessons learned in making the business model sustainable and more resilient to the turbulent scenario?
Can we use the crisis as a driver for a disruption and change?
In FEB Odyssey Business Forum we will tackle all these challenges and learn how to cope with them from the business leaders with a proven record of strategically transforming the business and leading corporations and companies in the turbulent times. Our panellist will provide us with the insights on how to lead the business in the uncertain times and what is to be done in order to make the business more resilient and sustainable.
