Inspirational Keynote - What does it really mean to have an agile culture?

Peter Rosseel
Director Management Consulting Research (MCR), Spin-off of the University of Leuven. Visiting professor University of Leuven

What does it really mean to have an agile culture? About innovation, new business models and getting your house in order.

The digital/technological (r)evolution brings a wealth of opportunities.  However, if you do not get your ‘house’ in order and design your vision, strategy, structure, processes and systems around the customer and involve and trust your employees in this approach, disruption may cross your path. Agility, risk, innovation, digital transformation, big data, organisational culture…are buzzwords that have as many interpretations as there are people around the table. But how to effectively stimulate a genuine culture of innovation in organisations, how to create new business models that add value based on this innovation and how to successfully integrate these new business models in our existing business?
