Future Boardrooms

Did you know that 75% of companies in the S&P 500 are going to disappear by the year 2030 out of which 50% of them are not born yet? (Babson College and subsequent research)

The rate of change in the marketplace today is unprecedented and exponential.

The big business dilemma is how to make their companies sustainable and thrive in an exponential world.

For this to happen, boardrooms need to look into the future through a “telescope” and yet make key business decisions by looking at their organization through a “microscope”.

We are entering in the 5th industrial revolution now.

FUTURE BOARDROOMS is a unique consultation program and engagement which deals with exactly this - getting you Future Fit. Future Ready and Future Proof.

Main Challenges That Businesses Face:

  1. Managing the immune system - Slow decision-making process
  2. Exponential thinking - Unable to deal with the rate of change in marketplace
  3. Purpose driven future - Not sure how to create changes
  4. Mindset shifts - Unable to change the habits within the organization
  5. Visioning the future-Too busy doing & fixing within reorganisation so not focused on the future

If this is your current situation (or even 3 of them), then you need to take action NOW!. NOKIA, BLOCKBUSTER and KODAK did not! There are many more current examples also.
