Lane4 - Disruptive thinking for a disruptive world - booklet

Disruption isn’t just tomorrow’s challenge. We need to be able to think disruptively and respond to a rapidly changing business environment, today. Lane4’s latest research shows that the context of business has shifted significantly and what worked in the past for leaders and organisations no longer does.

Rewards for Speed, Productivity and Agility

Rewards – the purpose of which is to attract, retain, and motivate employees - are the most static HR process. Though potentially a powerful lever for change, in practice they are a force for the status quo – far more often acting as a roadblock to rather than a facilitator of organisational agility. Many reward leaders do not know how reward systems could be otherwise. The academic and business press offer little help; only a handful of articles have ever been published on the topic. Gerry’s session reviewed why rewards have become impediments to dealing with disruption in far too many organisations and offered some prescriptions for making rewards far more adaptive in the future.

Global Economic Outlook - competing for talent

In our first speaker session, Nuria shared the latest news about the global economic outlook. In a word, it’s worrying. The outlook is worsening – growth is slowing all around the globe, and growth projections have declined over the past year for virtually all advanced economies, and emerging ones too. Although emerging economies (especially India) are still growing, growth is slightly less robust than previously forecast; in advanced economies, growth is best described as anaemic, and some economies are already teetering on the brink of technical recession. This is especially true in the UK, where Brexit has already had a negative impact on growth.

Since 2009, Apple and Google have procured millions of smartphone and tablet apps and the smartphones increasingly a hub for personal networks and, indeed, health monitors strapped to our arms.

In his first talk at CRF's 8th International Conference, Carsten Sørensen takes us through the three machine ages and the technologies that emerged during those times, as well as what it means for our future.
