From Gartner Futures Lab: How CMOs Can Adopt the Five Mindsets of a Futurist

The only long-term prediction that makes sense? There is no predictability. Not so long ago, a disruption meant the sudden emergence of a business rival that upended an industry, usually through digital innovation. Those jolts were scary, but lately, the shocks have hit even harder, altering many sectors at once; and they’ve hit bigger, surging across the whole world. CMOs tell us they’ve been unprepared for the knock-on effects of overlapping crises. Anticipating the next political shifts, social upheaval, superstorm, inflation, or invasion — and the combined cumulative effect — has been impossible.

In this session, you'll learn how to use Gartner's Futurist Mindsets to prepare to navigate the future - and maybe even engineer its chaos to your advantage.

Join us to hear from Gartner experts and thought leaders.
