What Attendees Will Learn
Navigating our complex world requires leaders to know how systemic risk, failure and change will thrive post-pandemic and be powered by our digital business systems. Event attendees will learn:
- What systemic risk is and how it leads to systemic change.
- How systemic risk thrives in the digital business system and what to do about it.
- How to understand and assess systemic risk in the digital business system.
The corporate boardroom and business leaders are responsible for understanding and leading on these issues. In the boardroom, Delaware Supreme Court Justice Collins Seitz Jr. recently said:
“Boards must be able to demonstrate credibly that they’re thinking proactively about potential systemic risk.”
Business leaders who understand systemic risk will begin to understand the systemic changes and opportunities that follow catastrophic failure. The World Economic Forum has also identified systems thinking skills as necessary competencies for leaders to navigate the post-Covid future.
Join us for the world's first event on these important issues.
