Guest Keynote: Black Box Thinking — High Performance in a Complex World
Matthew Syed, Writer, Broadcaster and Thought Leader,

As the world changes, there is one constant truth: only those who adapt can survive. Agility, and a willingness to innovate, are not just useful extras, but central to growth. The great institutions and successful individuals are adaptive for a simple reason: they realise that in a complex world, they don’t already have all the answers. They are therefore not threatened by information about their weaknesses. Indeed, they actively look for them, confronting their biases and recognising the benefits that come from cognitive diversity in process. The right psychology is the starting point for agility, adaptability, innovation and continuous improvement which are so fundamental to our future. We need to move away from self-justification and status quo bias if we are to lead in a competitive market. Using compelling examples from healthcare, aviation, business, education, sport and the criminal justice system, Matthew Syed will highlight how to implement a growth culture underpinned by diversity of thought and he will lay out the impact that this has on driving performance – both at an individual level and at an organisational level.

Tobias Verbist, Chief Enterprise Architecture & Innovation, City of Antwerp

As the dedicated and non-profit IT partner of the city of Antwerp, Digipolis is continuously challenged to build efficient and effective digital solutions at very high pace for the city administration and its users. Innovative and flexible solutions that guarantee a maximum of personalized services for residents, businesses, visitors and students. To meet this demand, a few years ago, Digipolis took on the task to completely rethink its existing development strategy. Building or buying silo applications was no longer an option: a strategy enabling a much higher degree of innovation, creativity and specialization was devised. Simultaneously, a thriving ecosystem was being built, based on the urban IT platform – ACPaaS, or ‘Antwerp City Platform as a Service’ - and an innovative procurement process ‘Buy from Startups’, resulting in different innovative insights and some highly successful and unexpected partnerships. ACPaaS enables smart city initiatives in Antwerp, is open for collaboration and embraces innovation.
