Innovation Institute



We’re all in crucial survival mode! Managing with clarity to manage ambiguity is the new strategic imperative that business leaders must become more adept at.

Fundamentally, business leaders are "questioning" the validity of their business models today:

  • Are my products and services relevant to today’s context and markets?
  • Does my Business Model continue to offer sustained revenue?
  • Is my Strategy on course to ensure effective delivery of business goals?
  • Are my people ready to embrace change for the new normal?

Establishing a recovery plan is paramount, but to achieve this, leaders need to understand the parameters that govern and affect the ambiguity surrounding their business operations. Only then, through this understanding, will leaders be able to develop new strategies to tackle this ambiguity. Given this inevitable change in direction, will your pre-COVID-19 business strategy hold future currency? And, are traditional business planning tools still relevant anymore?

Therefore, how can you ensure your business processes and operating model adapt within this continuously changing business environment, and how do you search out novel vignettes of growth to build business resilience to combat that increasing ambiguity?

This online webinar will arm you with a new playbook of innovative management practices that will help you to be more flexible, adaptable and digitally-pivot your business to achieve success in an uncertain world.
