Guest Keynote: Fit for the Future

As the 21st century unfolds, human beings face a daunting array of challenges, including climate change, income inequality, slowing productivity growth, ethnic strife, drug-resistant superbugs, cyber threats, mass migration, job-displacing automation and resource scarcity. In this keynote, Gary Hamel will provide a detailed blueprint for dismantling bureaucracy and creating organizations that are adaptable, inventive and empowering. He will demonstrate how to make the leap from a management model that maximizes compliance to one that maximizes contribution. Key topics will include:


●Motivation: How do we acquire the courage needed to challenge the bureaucratic status quo?

●Mindsets: How do we rid ourselves of out-dated “managerialist” beliefs that frustrate progress?

●Models: What can we learn organizations that are breaking the bureaucratic mold—that have embraced the principles of humanocracy and are, on average, more profitable and resilient than their peers.


●Migration: Where do you begin in “hacking” legacy management practices—how do you engineer large-scale change that is both revolutionary and prudent?

The future of our species depends on our ability to effectively harness the imagination and passion of every human being at work, and for that to happen, we will need a revolution in how we manage, lead and organize that is as radical as the revolution that launched the industrial age a century and a half ago.
