Thriving In Complexity: Finding and scaling opportunity in a changing market
In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, organisations are struggling to stay relevant. In this session, futurist and author Alex Hagan will explore the difference between organisations that suffer from complexity, and those that thrive in it. Hagan will show you how embracing complexity might be the greatest opportunity of our time, and give you practical steps to creating, rather than responding to or suffering from, the future.
Alex Hagan helps organisations to face fundamentally unpredictable futures with confidence. Data Science and Applied Foresight are his weapons of choice, and pragmatism underpins his approach to discovering and scaling opportunity in this complex New Normal. With a background in Econometrics, Software Product Management, and Futures Thinking, Alex defies categorisation (but you can call him a futurist, he won’t mind) and has worked with governments, corporations and communities on every continent except Antarctica to create the future of their industries, organisations, and workforces. From a break room in Boronia to the ballroom of the Washington Convention Centre, Alex is a globally sought after speaker, facilitator and advisor, and equips people the tools they need to create a future that takes advantage of the unprecedented complexity in the way we live and work today. Alex is the founder and CEO of boutique Strategic Workforce Planning consultancy, Kienco, and the author of Thriving in Complexity. www.alexhagan.co
