Register for Season 2


This is not traditional management training. It offers no miracle cures. Its aim is to enable you to ask better questions in a rapidly changing world so that you can in time pursue and make more fruitful decisions.
Yes, you will hear stories from the past, and stories about the future. But these series are selling you nothing. It seeks to spark your own curiosity and your insight, and so that you can learn how to put your heart, your insights, and your spirit into your workplace, where you will spend the majority of your adult life.
What you get out of the series will depend on what you put into it. The context to be covered is big, different, and complex.
The series is an invitation to a journey into a new world — the world of digital a journey on which we are all on, to a greater or lesser extent, whether we want it or not. It is riddled with risk and rich in excitement. These series are aimed at helping you to survive and thrive.

Why do we need to re-imagine management ?
Industrial-era management is largely obsolete. Most of what is practiced or assumed in industrial-era management in large organizations needs to be re-examined for relevance in the digital age; the most important elements have to change. Firms that aren’t adapting are dying, first slowly, and then suddenly.
Steve Denning, author, Co-creator of the World Agility Forum, Forbes Senior Contributor 


What is offered is a coherent redefinition of the concept of management in the digital age. The sessions are not simply a piecemeal collection of unconnected components. The elements of digital age management, like industrial-era management, form a complex interactive system. It comprises an integrated set of mutually supporting elements. We can only understand each element if we understand all the other elements and the whole. Unless you attend all sessions, your learning will be incomplete.
