SydDT #93: Designing Resilient Business Models in a VUCA World
We're lucky to have Michael Wilkens from Strategyzer visiting from Denmark. He'll be sharing his thoughts on designing resilient business models in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. Come join us for some fun conversations with interesting people keen on design thinking and innovation.
The skills of innovation are more important and valuable than ever in these times of change and uncertainty. There's a systematic approach that greatly increases the ROI of innovation and we'll explore the tools and processes using real examples.
In innovation (and business development in general) we often aim for growth as a driver of value creation, however in a VUCA world the value of predictability increases. We'll discuss how resilience as a strategy can be more valuable to a company than topline growth.
