Innovation Forum – The Company of the Future @ Four Seasons Hotel
Mar 10 all-day
Innovation Forum - The Company of the Future @ Four Seasons Hotel  | Chicago | Illinois | United States

Companies in every industry and every country face disruption in every aspect of their business. From designing, making and marketing products and services to recruiting and retaining the right talent, constant change is no longer the exception but the norm. Increasingly, innovation is not just about the product but about the company as a whole. Rigid hierarchies and bureaucratic processes are a ticket to the corporate scrap heap; the future will belong to the agile and lean, and the platforms and ecosystems they empower.

Even as startups and established companies compete with each other more fiercely than ever, they must find ways to learn better from each other, and sometimes figure out how to cooperate with each other in teams of rivals. Rising profitability, for big established firms and start-ups alike, will be the prize for those who figure out how to use the new technologies and ideas that are driving change to reinvent what it means to be a leading, world class company.
In Chicago, once again, in March The Economist Events’ Innovation Forum will bring together leading thinkers and practitioners from around the world to envision what the company of the future will be like and how today’s companies can achieve the transformation they will need if they are to flourish. Economist editors will ask the searching questions as Fortune 500 CEOs, policymakers and disruptive entrepreneurs share their insights and strategies for success in this coming world of constant exponential change.
