About the session:

Fast/Forward: Make Your Company Fit for the Future.

In this session, Professor Julian Birkinshaw will talk about the key ideas from his forthcoming book “Fast/Forward” where he argues that the current obsession with big data and data-driven decision making is overstated. The firms that succeed in the future will be those that understand the limitations as much as the benefits of information, and in particular it will be the ones that are able to foster a culture of decisive action allied to emotional conviction.

Professor Birkinshaw will argue that to address the changing sources of advantage in the business world, firms need to develop a new organising model, the adhocracy, to complement the traditional emphasis in large firms for bureaucracy and meritocracy. He will also describe what the adhocracy model means in terms of your style of leadership.
