NextGen Business Competencies: Keys to Being Ready for The Future
Presented by: Kupe Kupersmith
The future is here. Amazon and others are leading the way. What’s the secret? There is no secret. It is easy to see. Great companies align with emerging trends, take risks, fail fast and learn. They build internal cultures and teams that can work with new complexities and dynamic change by making high quality decisions at the speed of business.
Next generation business competencies are necessary skills for all individuals that help leaders make faster, better decisions. They help to make complex situations, ‘solutionable’ and ‘actionable’. You need the skills to help organizations find new areas of research, ways to prototype and test ideas, and quickly validate, so that the enterprise has momentum for innovation and value creation. You also need soft skills and leadership skills to build high commitment and trust in cooperative and co-creative teams. This is the future.
Kupe will present a model, developed in partnership with Curtis Michelson, that outlines the NextGen business competencies. Come prepared to think about the future and learn how you can be ready.
- Understand why new competencies are needed.
- Learn about the capabilities and competencies that you and your team must possess
- Discuss where these skills can take you
