Whenever "The Future" is mentioned as a title or theme, it conjures images of shiny gadgets, burning planets, and big words. Useful in books and movies. Less so for leaders and managers. In a real-time world, the future must be transformed from a tirade of clichés into a management tool.
Futurologist Magnus Lindkvist spent the pandemic years crafting actionable insights from how companies, entrepreneurs, and leaders made "future" an activity, not just a theory. Why is success toxic? What is exaptation and how can it spawn innovation? Why should we follow aliens? And what can we all learn from the Bee Gee's? These are some of the questions that will be answered in Lindkvitst's keynote at the Gartner IT Symposium/XpoT 2022.
