Andrew Card (Exclusively WSB)

In the global marketplace, new business or investment opportunities arise every day. But determining whether or not to do business or invest in developing nations, or nations emerging from recent instances of strife, can be difficult without the insight or experience to properly formulate the decision. Drawing on his experience in the White House, Andy Card was responsible for understanding the infrastructure and political culture of nations around the globe. He provides a broad overview of the current geopolitical strengths and risks of doing business or investing around the world including Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

Every company needs to grow, and innovation is the ticket to sustainable and profitable growth. What decisions can managers take to increase their probability of success? Managers have historically struggled to successfully manage innovation. The dilemma as described by Clayton Christensen, a giant in the world of innovators, is how to serve your core business while finding new markets and watching out for new entrants in your blind spot. Based on his seminal book, The Innovator’s Dilemma, considered by many to be the hallmark text on innovation by executive and entrepreneurs alike, Clayton Christensen has developed a set of theories to help guide managers when trying to build new growth businesses. In this relevant and timely presentation, Christensen coaches managers on how to sustain success by answer seven critical questions:

  • How can I beat powerful competitors?
  • How can I connect with customers?
  • How integrated should I be?
  • How should I set strategy?
  • From whom should I get funding?
  • Where should the innovation reside?
  • What is the role of the CEO?
