Guest Keynote: New Lenses on Value Creation: Management Logic in the Post-Digital Era

This session asks you to reflect on the "lenses" with which you unknowingly see the world, looking at major global trends and discussing the value-creating lenses. The objective is to find an optimal business logic in the post-digital era by wearing and removing various lenses throughout the session.
Firstly, this session will explain global changes happening every few decades with three keywords: SHIFT (the world shifting towards Service Economy), MELT (industry boundaries disappearing away), and TILT (the world’s economic center of gravity moving to the Southern Hemisphere).
Secondly, it will discuss world-leading cases of value creation in such a rapidly changing environment to understand the underlying logic through the lenses of new business theories such as SDL, Service-Dominant Logic, and MSP, Multi-sided Platform.
This session also presents emerging “post-digital” lenses such as OMO, Online Merges with Offline, which shift you from adopting online engagement premised on an offline world to adapting to an offline environment based on the online world.
Finally, you will be asked to try those SDL, MSP, and OMO lenses and find out what opportunities and issues might bring to your organization.

Meet the experts face to face.
