Place: AVAST, Enterprise Office Center, Pikrtova 1737/1A, Praha 4
Dear HST members, IMD Alumni and Guests,
Today’s business environment can be characterized as being increasingly
competitive, complex, volatile, and digital. Corporate leaders and managers are
struggling to effectively address the business challenges that this new
environment induces, including the opportunities and threats resulting from
digital disruption. This event aims at shedding some light on this issue and
answering the following questions: how can companies leverage digital
capabilities and innovative business models for value creation and business
transformation? How to use technology to transform the corporation from a rigid,
industrial and product-centric entity into an agile, innovative and customercentric
organization? How to move from operating an internal value chain to managing a value network
that leverages the power of digital ecosystems? What leadership is required for digital business
transformation and for managing the related organizational change?
