We live in a rapidly changing world where the pace at which disruptive technology is unveiled and implemented is accelerating rapidly. The path to success for corporations may no longerlie in the adaptation of terrain-based strategies and core competencies. New approaches to strategy that analyze present day markets from a future-based perspective are becoming more prevalent, but carry their own risks and challenges. On September 15th a group of Chief Strategy Officers will convene to explore these issues and develop winning strategies of trajectory that allow for short-term adaptability and long-term economic value. John Hagel III, co-chairman for Deloitte LLP’s Center for the Edge will open the session with a presentation. John is a management consultant, author, speaker and entrepreneur. He has served as senior vice president of strategy at Atari, Inc., and is the founder of two Silicon Valley startups. Author of “The Power of Pull,” “Net Gain,” “Net Worth,” “Out of the Box” and “The Only Sustainable Edge,” John holds a B.A. from Wesleyan University, a B.Phil from Oxford University and a J.D. and MBA from Harvard University.
