We live in a competitive world. That competition forces change. It has always forced change.

Change is normal. The question is not whether our organisations will change - that’s a given - but can we see this change before it hits us, do we know where we’re heading or are we simply floating aimlessly being carried by a river? It certainly feels that way sometimes.

To answer the question we need to understand our landscape, the economic forces at play, the context we operate within and our situational awareness of this. Can we navigate the waters, can we see a storm coming, or are we being battered by rocks because we refuse to look?

During this keynote Simon Wardley (Leading Edge Forum) will examine situational awareness within business, why it matters, and whether we can anticipate and exploit change before it hits us. He will explore how we can manage our economic environment: “cross the river by feeling the stones”, as Chinese revolutionary Deng Xiaoping said.
