Learning & Development


Did you know that 75% of companies are going to disappear by the year 2030 out of which 50% of them are not born yet? (Babson College plus other research)

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

The big business dilemma is how to make their companies sustainable & thrive.

Microscope & Telescope

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 a new industrial revolution today. 10x MOONSHOT THINKING is a unique learning experience which deals with exactly this - getting you ready for the future.

Main Challenges 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 (even 3 of them), then you may be in for a surprise in the years to come just as NOKIA, BLOCKBUSTER, SONY or KODAK went through a decade ago.
