Those who have experienced Howard Yu in the past know that he manages to engage a large assembly with his engaging and groundbreaking lectures. Therefore, there is no doubt that Yu will again provide an entertaining and instructive lecture experience out of the ordinary. In this masterclass, Yu talks about management and strategy, which are two topics he has researched intensively. One actually executes on the initiatives. Without execution, the ideas are nowhere to be found, and that is precisely why many companies do not succeed in even their most promising strategies.

This is precisely the focal point of this masterclass, in which Erin Meyer will share his extensive experience in the field and provide a valuable and inspiring insight into how we can understand and improve our collaboration between the countries – for joy, benefit and success for ourselves and the companies we work for.

Innovation – How to achieve larger innovative capital within the company

Nathan Furr – Nathan Furr is an Associate Professor of Strategy at INSEAD, reknown internationally and award winning writer within innovation and technology strategy.

Nathan Furr’s latest book is ”Innovation Capital: How to Compete – and Win – Like the World’s Most Innovative Leaders”. In this masterclass Furr gives an exiting insight in how we as leaders can get even better at creating innovation in our businesses and expecially: How we can learn from the Best:

Great leaders of innovation know that creativity is not enough. They succeed not only on the basis of their ideas, but because they have the vision, reputation, and networks to win the backing needed to commercialize them. It turns out that this quality – called “innovation capital” – is measurably more important for innovation than just being creative.

Based upon decades of research studying how people get great ideas, professor Furr will provide the participants with knowledge and inspiration as to how they themselves build up a reputation of innovation, which techniques you will have to use to strenghten your ‘innovation capital’ and how you achieve the awareness and support of others in realtions to new ideas and projects. In conclusion Furr will provide insights in what it means to practice a visionary leadership and how it is done.

Since the start of the Corona pandemic there has been a significant change in how we meet and use technology for this purpose. We all know the dos and don’ts of a Zoom or Teams meeting. The time after lock-down is approaching and how will our experiences help us in the future?

In this masterclass we – again – have the pleasure of introducing INSEAD professor Mark Mortensen, who for decades have researced and helped distributed and virtuel teams – even long before it was the common pratice for all of us. Mortensen will dive into how we create well functioning and capable teams and to what extent we will continue using virtuel teams in the future.

What are the valuable perspecitves of virtuel teams? Did we already come to an understanding or did we miss some of the points? Even though we feel we have come far – this masterclass will provide new insights in how we can coopereate even more effectively in a future after lock-down. What elements of virtual cooperation can we develop even further in order to create successful teams both virtually as well as physically.
