The companies that thrive in the near future will be the ones that not only embrace change but are the first to break the rules. If you could start with a clean sheet of paper, how would you design your company? Should your youngest staff member be making coffee or running your R&D team? Is Big Data something for your IT department to worry about, or a weapon to be wielded by your management team? Do you ban social networks or use them to collaborate more effectively?

Most companies are simply not designed to survive. They become successful on the basis of one big idea or breakthrough product. That early success then becomes a rigid code, and as customer habits and markets change, many fail to see that everything that made them successful is exactly what will destroy them later.

James Wolfensohn (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing on his two terms as president of the World Bank, James Wolfensohn explores the tectonic global economic shifts in the coming decades, their repercussions for the global economy and why they matter. With dignity and focus, he presents the development challenges faced by middle and low-income countries, based on his extensive travel to more than 130 nations in the last ten years. Wolfensohn focuses on how to manage economic growth to benefit not just the rising economic powerhouses like India and China, but also lagging and impoverished regions such as Sub-Saharan Africa, to create a more equitable world. Wolfensohn speaks on specific poverty-related challenges in areas of health, education and employment as well as looking at the impact of interventions such as micro finance, school reforms and HIV/AIDS prevention programs.

James Wolfensohn (Exclusively WSB)

James Wolfensohn, former World Bank president and international financial adviser, combines his expertise in business and development to present how the private sector can contribute to development.

Wolfensohn believes that the private sector will be one of most important forces of prosperity and wealth generation in developing countries. How should companies see their role and responsibilities in developing countries? How should they respond to expectations to go beyond profit seeking? Wolfensohn explores how companies can blend economic and social value in their quest for profit.
